First noticed in “The Last Station”: That glorious combination of autumnal amber and inky blue with all the majesty and warmth of fall leaves against a bright blue sky. Of course, even off screen, designers are not ignorant of the drama of indigo and gold. Here are four examples.
Above: At Matto, an Italian eatery in Shanghai, Darryl Goveas, Founder and Director of Pure Creative International, used golden lamps and rich indigo fabrics to add touch of warmth and elegance to an industrial space.

Above: From an old issue of Domino, this almost-black wall dramatically offsets the graphic and gold art collection. See Framed Glass As Decor for more ideas on decorating walls.
Above: At Hudson Merchant House indigo and gold are employed to evoke a more classical feel. Visit Show Us Your Indigo to see more bright blue inspiration.
Above: A little bathroom humor, English color-masters Farrow and Ball use indigo to create and dramatic (but not too serious) bath. To see glamorous hardware in the kitchen, see Gold for the Table.
