Indigo Blues and Forest Greens at Decorex Cape Town

Entering Decorex Cape Town last week, I was subconsciously expecting to see a lot of classy, elegant black stands. Black and grey have been designer favourites at the show for a while. This was not the case at Decorex Cape Town, I walked into the show and my eyes nearly popped out when the stand in front of me – Mr Price – was eye candy in beautiful Indigo blues, with accents of green, gold and copper.
