Denim blue brings cool vibes to interiors
Right now, it’s all about denim blue but not just on jeans. Stalwart of the fashion world with unisex appeal, hard-wearing reputation, super washable, go-to fabric in relaxed-luxe dressing, and comfortable everyday apparel, no wonder denim refuses to fall off the radar. While you might be thinking clothes: washed denim, distressed denim, designer denim (Chanel), double denim (jacket and jeans); Daisy Duke denim (short shorts); and Kardashian denim (Khloé Kardashian’s Good American denim line), we’re talking about interiors denim. For starters, Dulux hails Denim Drift as the 2017 paint colour of the year. It’s a subtle grey-blue with heaps of sophistication. Here’s what the expert has to say about it:
Denim Drift is a wonderfully diverse foundation for the 2017 trend palettes, which tells the story of ‘life in a new light’. With denim blue set to dominate the interior and fashion trend agenda for 2017, Denim Drift is the perfect fit to reflect the times we live in, that real desire for simplicity. Designers love it and so do we.” Dulux Colour and Design Trend Expert, Rebecca Williamson.
On walls, Denim Drift brings a new “cool” to interiors without being a “cold” shade. The key is in the calming tones: not too blue, not too grey (it’s all about balance). Simply, this is a soothing shade that can be layered easily with other colours, such as Cream; soft White; darker Navy; hot Orange.
Elsewhere, denim hues bring relaxed luxe to home accessories such as lampshades and bedding while home fragrance draws inspiration from the blues, too. Blue print designs on candles, softest cotton blues on bedding and effortlessly cool blues on walls, we’re officially obsessed with the following:
