Feeling blue gets a bad rap. If you want a sad color, I vote puce. Why should the color of the sea and the sky be so tied to melancholy? Blue is too beautifully various to be limited to one emotion. Linzee’s post on indigo has us feeling blue in the best way. We’ve collected an array of Etsy finds that celebrate this deeply appealing shade — click through to see them all, from dip-dyed denim shirts to cyanotype still lifes.
