DOUBLE DENIM DEBATE

Love it or hate it, double denim was an iconic fashion trend which walked our streets in the 90’s and it is making a strong comeback in both fashion and believe it or not, in home ware.

I love my Levis jeans. They are without doubt the most comfy jeans I own and I have two pairs which I tend to alternate between when I’m not feeling my super skinny jeans. Jeans are the basis to the majority of people’s wardrobe.

Random lady workin’ it in denim

Look at this simple and plain outfit. The model looks fresh, clean, crisp and a little edgy with the knee cutouts. Put these ingredients into home decor and you get this:

I just adore the denim wall covering and you can find all sorts such as this at Wallpaper Direct. Why is it though that denim is not widely used in home decor? Possibly because of the taboo in fashion but I think it is underrated and underutilized.

Now I LOVE a bit of homemade in every home. Denim is possibly the most readily available recyclable fabric we all have in our home. Whether you want to make a cushion, or a little place mats like these.

Elle Decor were onto this design trend last year and wrote a great post about ways to incorporate a variety of denim into your home. Take a look at the post here. You can see the ‘Denim Loft’ collection by Chivasso for Jab Anstoetz.

If you’re not sold yet, how about taking the colour theory of denim and applying that into a whole scheme. Take a look at my denim inspired board for those who are not brave enough to go denim crazy.

So next time you see someone walking down the street in double denim, just remember that they are bringing it back!
