Denim features strongly in the newest fashion trends this season, showing itself once again across the catwalks of Paris and Milan. Generally where fashion leads, interiors follow. But denim had never really gone away; it is woven into the fabric of our lives and is so entrenched in our history that itís like an enduring love affair. This time, as always, we have simply brought it back out of the box and re-invented it.
The colours and texture of denim translates well into the home. Whether you opt for denim overtones, or subtler undertones, like the perfect pair of jeans it makes for a relaxed look. It pairs well with crisp white linens and neutral tones, or layered with other shades of blue to create tonal depth. Get the denim look anywhere in your home, whether it be on the walls with the Arthouse Denim Pattern Faux Jeans wallpaper, or a denim rug from Stepevi.com. The Egg chair has been revamped for Heals.co.uk, and comes covered in denim. Alternatively, a simple beanbag, hard wearing and a simple statement in denim.

Denim is a strong and robust fabric and is an easy accent colour to work with. Placed alongside bright whites and deep red it gives you an instant New England feel. Team with rich dark woods with accents of brass and copper for a modern design which is edgy and considered.

A scattering of cushions are a more subtle way of introducing an accent of denim and is ideal for those looking to embrace the denim tend on a small scale.
