Hot Right Now – Denim

January 11th, 2015 in Home Improvement

New Year is a time for new starts – we all say it and many of us stick to it, it’s new year so it’s time for a new us… But what about a new home?

We don’t mean relocating to a new house – just changing a few things here and there to create a new feeling that is both up-to-date and very, very trendy.

Sound like something you fancy doing? We’re bringing you a series of blog posts this month featuring all the hot trends for 2015 to see if there’s anything that really takes your fancy!

Denim

It’s no big surprise that such a timeless material is making a big splash on the interiors scene – whether you’re using denim as a big, statement feature in your room or just adding subtle touches in your decor, we’ve taken a look at some of the most stylish ways you can incorporate this fabulous fabric seamlessly into your home.

Upholstery

We’ve all got that old, faithful pair of jeans that feel comfortable no matter where we are and what we’re doing so why not bring that level of casual comfort into your home with denim upholstery?

The picture above shows a beautifully upholstered couch that also uses lighter, pastel tones on the cushions to create a gentle contrast – adding a complimentary pattern is also a great idea to break up the blocky, bold colouring.

Doorstops

In recent years, doorstops have become a wider sought after accessory for the home thanks to stylish colouring and quirky designs.

While there is a myriad of cute critters made up out of denim, we particularly like the little dog shown above – it’s that right mix of fun and funky that will add a trendy touch to your decor.

Walls

Why not try something a little different? Rather than stick to denim as a fabric, why not more look towards denim as a colour?

The deep blue walls above are sure to make a dark yet delightful statement in your home and we love the addition of such bright and beautiful paintings to really create a contrast in the colouring.

Carpets and Rugs

If you’re feeling too nervous about making a big, bold change to your walls, why not accessorise with a stylish denim style rug?

Once again, it doesn’t necessarily need to be made from denim material, but if it has the right colouring and a similar texture, it will still give the same effect and also offer you an interchangeable feature in your room.

Blinds and Curtains

Our Spectrum Denim roman blind features a beautifully rich colour with a thick and fabulous texture, just like denim, while our Smooth Sisal Lapis Lazuli curtains could run away with a best dressed prize at any contest!
