Trendspotting : Inky Indigo

The indigo color trend has been gaining some serious momentum in the stationery world over the past year or so and I, for one, am completely enamored with this rich, versatile hue. Deep and inky indigo is absolutely gorgeous on its own against a backdrop of white or cream, but it’s also a wonderful contrast against other on trend colors like hot / neon pink, minty blue-green, and eye-catching copper foil.

I also love that this color pairs perfectly with several popular styles and motifs, like watercolor, the inked / brushstroke look, and florals, the latter of which reminds me of sun bleached paper crafts or a different color take on a film negative.

Here’s a little indigo eye candy for you, and I hope that it kickstarts some of your own indigo design explorations!
