Add drama to your kitchen with rich and intense shades of indigo and navy
While watery tones of blue are the mainstay of bathroom design, you can be more daring in kitchens. A heavy dose of navy or indigo adds a sense of depth, while clearly defining the space – ideal in open-plan homes. The blues should be dramatic and deep (shades that Yves Klein would approve of ) and aim for variations in tone, with either irregular finishes or a mix of materials in the same shade. Flashes of bright white and metallics shine particularly well when backed by blue.
