Indigo blue sublimates the decor
Indigo blue is the color of spring. Dense, deep, bright and fresh, indigo takes us to distant lands where this color is queen, to discover Portugal, Greece or Morocco. In the house, it is on cushions, on the curtains, or in bed linen that indigo blue sublimates our decor.
Timeless color, the indigo blue awakens a textile wall hanging as well as a bathroom tile or a convivial table. Exotic and chic at the same time, it invites to calm or relaxation and revamps the house with freshness.

9. A piece of indigo blue wall tile in the bathroom
We give character to the bathroom by choosing for the wall deep indigo blue tiles. In contrast, the white bathtub, leaning against the blue tiles, stands out elegantly. We also like the elongated brick shape of the hand-finished and slightly irregular tiles. The deco trick : not to darken the room, we covered a single piece of wall tile.

Light and airy, these curtains dress the room with their exotic designs. The light is smoothly sifted through the irregularly dyed fabric.

And also ... A bathroom tile spotted with indigo blue
Inspired by Japanese textiles, this original tile declines the color indigo blue watercolor way. As if we had poured water on paint, a gradient run out on the tiles. The indigo blue brings out the whiteness of the tiles and enhances it. The deco trick : the "stain" style of the painting on the tile, which gives its arty touch to the sink area.
