Decor with Denim

I’ve been curious about decor with denim for a while now. I especially love walls that look like jean material…is that done with paint or wallpaper? The shade of denim are endless, and if you’re going blue with your room interior design, adding some denim appeal give it a nice casual, yet crisp feel. Above pic via Ralph Lauren.

If you  don’t want to hassle with wallpaper, denim wall can be created relatively easily with paint, and a nifty wall paper brush. After picking your desired shade of denim roll it on the wall. Immediately after rolling, while paint is still quite wet, take the wall paper brush and stroke horizontally, then brush vertically to create the neat cross-hatched pattern that is recognized in denim jeans. A do-it-yourself idea that’s so simple I think I can even do this!

Here are some more denim decor ideas. Enjoy!

Dare to go dramatically denim blue in your kitchen? There are some perks to it. According to color theories, adding blue in your kitchen actually reduces your appetite, thus making dieting easier. (Reds and oranges enhance appetite).

Denim and white in the bedroom is fresh and lovely and give a cool feel in summer months.

I spent some time back in Sept organizing our files and office “stuff”, but that folding table sure wasn’t pretty or big enough to meet our needs.
