Indigo Blue and Denim for Your Home

Blue is a favorite color for many.  It is considered a neutral and can mix with many other colors.  Indigo blue is showing a major surge in interior design this year.  And just in time to trend alongside indigo blue is denim.  Denim is casual, relaxed and comfortable.  Let’s slip on our favorite pair of jeans and explore some interiors that make this color and fabric work.

Indigo blue is a deeply saturated combination of blue and violet.  It pairs well with white or gray.  For a bold contrast, pair it with red, orange or pink.  Greens and purples combine well with indigo also.

A monochromatic indigo blue room can be quite moody if not handled properly.  Mix in high sheen by using gloss paint, metals and glass.  Add gray, white or patterned fabrics or paints.  This will lift the blue, giving it depth and dimension in what could be an otherwise flat room.

Of course there is the classic blue and white.  You can never go wrong with this color combination.  It is sharp and crisp.  It can be refined and sophisticated or casual and carefree.

Gray adds a cool sophistication to indigo blue.  A gray wool-covered sofa against an indigo blue wall is striking.  Gray throw pillows play well against an indigo blue sofa.

Furniture covered in blue denim mixes well with more casual interiors.  But if you’re the type of person that likes wearing pearls and heels with your blue jeans, try denim fabric on a classic sofa or chair.  The Chesterfield sofa pictured below stands out with denim fabric.

Denim wallcoverings make a great statement in a room, providing depth of color and texture.  Try it on one wall or cover the entire room.

  1. I am wondering where I can buy the chesterfield denim sofa with chaise featured in this article?

    I would really appreciate your help

    1. Devon,
      The sofa was available through the website at the time of the article, but it has since sold out. I did find a custom furniture source that has a Chesterfield sectional sofa very much like the one pictured in my article. The store is online at They have a variety of fabrics, with stores in NC, GA and NY. I hope this helps!
