The Color of the Year 2013
The color of the year for 2013 acts as a visual band-aid to our hectic lives. Indigo is a striking statement colour associated with wisdom and honesty which enhances your environment.
Like the dreamy ocean landscapes hidden from everyone but deep sea divers, this color gives us a sense of tranquillity and stability which is very restful. It's a big and benevolent colour which combines the trustworthy nature and evocative elegance of robust blue. To understand the two sides of this indigo's character, just think how we are reassured by blue uniforms worn by those in positions of trust and authority, but can still be dazzled by the facets of a sapphire. As a paint color, this indigo adds a surprising, elegant strength.
Indigo amazes us. It instils a sense of wonder, even in adults. The fact that our access to blue this deep and rich in the natural world is limited gives it a magical quality.
Within a color palette, this indigo is a versatile hue. It pairs very well with brights of a similar saturation level, citrus colors, or warmer neutrals, as well as other blues, purples and greens.
