Cheryl Freedman added this to What Goes With Indigo Blue?7 December 2015

Give traditional style a contemporary twistRich, deep, indigo walls offer an instant heritage look – ideal if you want a shortcut to a cosy, country boutique hotel look. Indigo works fabulously alongside traditional fittings, but in a truly modern way. In this elegant space, the dark blue walls go beautifully with the classic armchair and sofa, gilt-framed oil painting and eye-catching chandelier. When choosing paint, be sure to try a few tester pots to get the right shade and effect for your room – indigo shades vary from almost black to greenish or greyish. Look at your test shades in natural and artificial light, and at different times of day, to be confident of your choice.

Go bright against darkColoured furniture against dark walls can knock the austere edges off a restrained, grown-up scheme and provide a welcome highlight among the deep tones. You don’t even have to reach for the most eye-popping pieces; any bright object (an armchair, a table) will stand out nicely against a very dark backdrop without clashing.

all traditional stuff just like yours - dark blue walls and crazy green chair modernize the whole thing
