For the past many months, I've been feeling blue - the color, that is! I admit, I'm usually not a lover of a primary-like color...I gravitate more towards an aqua than a cobalt, but this Indigo blue is feeling very fresh! Especially when mixed with other shades and values within it's range.

I spotted it on the Roberto Cavalli Resort 2014 runway, and have been in love since! After that, it started popping up in magazines, companies were making products using this color - and also incorporating the huge trend of tiles, either from Turkey or Islam. Prior to it shifting into this trend, the inspiration was delft blue from Chinese or Dutch ceramics. If you haven't spotted them yet, keep your eye out and I guarantee that you'll start seeing this huge trend all around you. I think it's still got a lot of life to it and we'll see it into next year for sure.
