Dressing your Decor with DENIM!

As the first post of the New Year, I feel the slight pressure of making it sound profound and find myself having writing anxiety.  So instead of attempting to discover a new design revelation, I’m just going to “jump right in” and write about what I know: design ideas that I hope inspire you to create a home you LOVE and never want to LEAVE!

Just like having the perfect pair of A-M-A-Z-I-N-G fitting jeans, incorporating denim into your interiors can be just as stylish (and possibly even better)!  Fashion and Interiors have never before been so closely parralled.  Many well-known Fashion Designers have recently debuted Interior Decor Collections, and have quite alot of influence on the home decor industry.  Denim is a classic material in fashion and interior design, and has been a common thread seen throughout most runway shows over the past few years.  Because of it’s durability and affordable appeal, denim is a smart material to use to update your interior!
