Indigo and Ochre Design featured on Elements of Style Blog

Woke up this chilly Brooklyn morning (arrived, still sandy, from Jamaica last night) and on my morning blog-crawl what should I see but this (above) glorious post by Erin Gates on her ENORMOUSLY popular + influential + long-standing blog, Elements of Style.

Featuring Indigo & Ochre Design and shots of our brownstones!

What a lovely return and what an honor.

Erin has been parsing all things design with great insights, humility and much wit – both home and fashion – since 2008 and she’ll be in print soon!

Thank you Erin from your Brooklyn fans (and family), Courtney + Shanti


  1. Love your Brownstone! Inquiring minds need to know… what grey paint did you use for the Masterbath walls. Looks great w/ white, brass and the re-purposed vanity!

  2. Thanks Mimi. It’s a testament to how in synch my partner Courtney and my own aesthetics are that our brownstones (her pics of living & dining rooms, mine of kitchen and baths) have been taken to be one! The master bath pictured is indeed from my home and we used Benjamin Moore’s ‘Metropolitan’ in a matte finish – it was the closest I could come to the veining in the marble we used in this bathroom. It’s a lovely soft hue with a very slight green undertone – hope that helps.
