after a long, hot summer, indigo’s deep, Mediterranean charms are welcome in our homes. this burst of jewel-like colour feels particularly refreshing following on the heels of the trend for dark black-based blues, but indigo is a forceful shade that requires a strong commitment in the kitchen. Make it more livable by combining solid blocks of indigo on cabinetry and splashbacks with two-tone patterned floor tiles, as Martin Moore has in this spirited design. ‘the oily-iridescent surface of the ceramic splashback tiles reflect the light, which allowed us to use this strong shade on a large area without overpowering the room,’ says designer toni silver of Martin Moore.
