Indigo or Dark Purple is often associated with sedation, tranquility, calming, and intuition. This color combines blood-warming red and cooling antiseptic blue. It is an excellent stimulant without being an irritant.
The deep shades of Indigo are often preferred by pets and people with strong loyalties to their family and friends. Indigo enhances telepathic communication with your animal companion. It also calms him and clears away anger. This is a good color for people and animals that need to rest and recover from illness or injury.
Decorating your home with indigo can exert a soothing effect on the eyes and the nervous system of people surrounded by it. However, you may find these deep shades are too cold or depressing if the coverage of the darker shades is too large, or, there are not enough lighter accents to bright up the room. To avoid this side effect, use Indigo on furniture or decorative accents instead of on walls. If wall color is the preferred application, add in plenty brightly colored accents (but in limited–no more than 2–color shades) in the room, or skimpily paint the wall with the lighter shade of Purple, Violet or Lavender (see previous posting).
