Textile Collection by House Beautiful
Fashion week in New York has just passed and all fingers point to denim. A standard American statement since the days of the beetles, denim is once again in the spotlight as a chic dressing option. On a more genenrous note, Aeropostale, a junior store in the USA has just collected a whopping 624,893 pairs of jeans for humane causes such as the Haiti earth quake victims through their “Jeans for teens” program.
Adorning a home with denim is something of a statement and when it comes down to it, this down-home fabric makes for a durable decorating solution. Blue is a popular color choice and there are many ways to incorporate it into your decor. The blue kitchen below by House Beautiful is a successful example of how to work with this element.
This denim valance stripe by Lone Star Western Decor is well designed. I don’t usually go for fringe embellished items but thisone works well. Adding denim as an accent is a great way to inject the look into a rooms theme. Stripes and plaids are typical patterns that can be used as a way to incorporate this decorating trend.
Heres a bedding set from the same supplier. Red denim is a winning variation on the theme.
So if denim is blue and denim is red then what is it made of? Denim is made by weaving with a color warp and a white weft. The two colors combined create a softened version of the color that we know as denim. Blue is the superstar when it comes to this textile but technically any color can be used to make the many variations of denim.
