We’ve all got a favourite pair of jeans, usually the oldest ones in our wardrobe that have seen better days, but we can’t bear to part with. There’s something intrinsically cool, yet warm and comforting about denim.
Invented by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873, jeans were originally designed as workwear, but during the mid 20th Century their increasing popularity has meant they are now a casual staple in most people’s wardrobes.
So denim, with it’s laid-back vibe and qualities of both strength and comfort, has translated perfectly into the home; a trend which we’ve seen growing for the past few years.

Accessorising Denim Blue
Faded blues are cool and calming, and work well in both modern and traditional interiors. Here are a few ideas of how denim shades could fit into your home:
Denim blue is perfectly at home in a laid-back loft apartment; modern with industrial influences and plenty of natural light.
If you haven’t got a loft, but want the look, you can find realistic looking brick wallpapers - ideal for a feature wall. Accessorise with modern patterns and natural textures.
Traditional with a Twist
Denim might not be synonymous with classic interiors, but a soft blue hue can add a relaxed tone to a more traditional theme.
The combination of blue and cream is a stylish one; just think of the classic tones of a Wedgewood vase. To add some depth to the look, add cushions in a darker shade of blue.
If you’re a lover of denim in all its shades, then commit to a double (or triple) denim look!
Opt for grey-blue walls or this stylish, retro-inspired Khadi wallpaper by British brand Scion. Add in different shades of blue in the form of cushions and accessories for a look that is cool and tranquil.
The perfect mix of fashion, function and form. Who wouldn’t want their favourite jeans translated into their lovely new sofa? (Plus a roast dinner won’t make your sofa seem a bit tight!)
