Trends: Denim is doing it... again

Swimming in a sea of indigo or denim this coming spring is everything. From handbags to home decor, from scarves to slipcovers, the timeless, utilitarian textile is once again returning, and it feels as fresh as the day it was introduced.

Trends: Denim is doing it... again

Swimming in a sea of indigo or denim this coming spring is everything. From handbags to home decor, from scarves to slipcovers, the timeless, utilitarian textile is once again returning, and it feels as fresh as the day it was introduced.

Inspired by Japanese textiles, these carpets are more like art underfoot, each telling a story.

The recycled option at West Elm is awesome also.

If you want to be bowled over, you should see this midnight blue Baccarat chandelier in person.  It is drop dead to die for. Denim dresses the shades,and if you can put it on a $40,000.00 chandelier, you can put it on anything!

Denim is great for a lot of layering:

Adding that washed (just not acid washed, not now anyway) appeal is like the 80's all over again ~ but more refined. Kudos if it has a homemade hand or ethnic vibe.

From inky blues to chambrays and dark washes, denim represents a sense of comfort.  It is a neutral that literally goes with anything, and has a fresh edginess.  There is a sophistication to this "new denim" look; a tidy and timeless appeal.

No interior is too "high brow" for the denim treatment

Seriously, it looks good on anything.
