Some say denim is and has been the new black. I totally agree! I could live in denim 7 days a week. When considering decorating with denim blue, it sometimes sounds too back country. It really is all about mixing it with the right colors. The girl below is wearing denim on denim but breaks it up with a super colorful, bohemian clutch. The same can be done with rugs, pillows and other accessories in a room. She also is sporting gold jewelry and a brown belt. Translate that into brass lighting and brown wood furniture pieces. This look can be modern, stylish and still feel classic. Here’s the look:
Color Inspiration: Shirt and Shorts.
The name of the paint is Denim so it’s got to be pretty true to it’s name, right? Try it on upholstered furniture pieces and accessories.
Color Inspiration: Bag
Ablaze is a perfect orange/red to incorporate in art, fabrics and rugs.
Color Inspiration: Bag.
Try minty Waterfall in fabrics, pillows, upholstered pieces and or window treatments.
Bonus: Ski Slope will look picture perfect on the walls.
We see below a scandinavian inspired living space with a pop of denim in sofa and a little orangy red and mint in the wallpaper. What are your thoughts on this color palette?
