Indigo blue color palette inspiration

If you’ve flipped through the pages of our summer catalog, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve loved infusing all of our pages with a coastal vibe. Whether it’s strong navy-and-white color palette, soft sandy neutrals with hints of the sea, or a light watery aqua from top to bottom, ‘coastal’ always feel fresh and relaxing, a Ballard Designs favorite! Inspired by the spaces in our Summer 2014 catalog, we’ve broken down exactly how to get that coastal look straight from our pages to the web!

Inspired by our Blue and White Porcelain Vases, we designed this space around an indigo and white color palette. Heavy doses of white, like our wall color and our favorite Sofia Sofa, and open furniture like our Olivia Cocktail Table and our Sonoma Bookcase, keep the space feeling open and airy, a must when designing a coastal space, while a large-scale print like our Tybee Blue Fabric brings that laid-back beachy vibe without the need for seashells. But we couldn’t stop with our Tybee Blue pattern, we worked in our Ikat Stipe Pillows and our Blue Geranium Art! To finish off the space, we used tons of natural materials, like our Braided Jute Rug, preserved boxwoods, and even some fresh hydrangeas for the perfect summer touch.
