Astonishing Splashes of Colour: Indigo

January 3, 2012

This was not an easy post to find photographs for, Indigo is not an easy colour to find, it is shy and likes to hide in amongst blue and violet, only peeking out at rare intervals. I have therefore tried to keep the colours true, but I cannot guarantee that the pictures will all look indigo as everyone’s monitor varies slightly, so bear with me on this one.

I'm not sure if this is indigo or not, I'll leave it up to you to decide.

I am running a blog giveaway to celebrate completing my challenge of 111 projects in 2011,  all you have to do to enter is leave a comment anywhere on my blog between now and Monday 9th January.I really really love reading comments, so don’t be shy! Tell me what you think of my Astonishing Splashes of Colour series. Once I have done all the usual colours, I was thinking of doing colour combination posts (like blue and white, pink and gray and so on), what do you think of that idea?

    I love your “Splashes of colour” posts. I too have decided to make sure I make some things this year. So I’ve set myself the target of 50 (one a week with a holiday or 2). I’m going to blog about it too but it’s not quite ready yet!
    Happy crafting

      That is brilliant instantly! 50 sounds like a very good target, I look forward to reading all about them on your blog.

      Well, I learnt that it is a very fine line between navy blue and indigo!

    If only I could take pics that look even half as good as yours! Love the indigo piece. Gorgeous rooms. Any idea where I can get one of those cream wingback style chairs,… It is lovely! Though I would probably need the curtains too wouldn’t I ? And the cushions…. Oh darn!

      Yep, you’d need the whole package 🙂 I do love that chair and the cushion. No idea where to get it, sorry.

    Those pictures are simply stunning. I love the way you have assembled the photo series too. Grey and pink or grey and lavender, lilac and cream or pink… I look forward to seeing your future colour combination pictures!

    Lovely colour. Really like your colour posts. Wonder how you’d get on with ‘clear’…?

    Love the color blog posts, I always find something interesting that makes me think “I really want that piece for my house!”. I think combination colors would be a great idea. It would show us how certain colors look together in the home… plus open up color ideas for more crochet!
