For interior design enthusiasts who are hoping to bring a cool, casual element into their home décor, denim is a surprising new material which is making a shift from the runways. Although you may be used to sporting jeans on the weekends, denim pillows and furnishings are set to make a splash in 2016. As you prepare to host summer parties and usher the balmy weather into your space, use denim as an easy way to create a welcoming, fresh vibe. Here are a few chic ways to decorate with the fabric this season.
Turn to indigo blue denim sofas adorned with patterned cushions: For a bold, bohemian step into the trend, revamp your living room with dark blue denim sofas. Use an array of matching denim and contrasting printed accents pillows to craft the ultimate blue oasis. Meanwhile, hardwood floors, framed abstract artwork and quirky patterned blankets help to wrap up the look.

Contrast your denim furnishings with wooden accents: If you prefer rustic accents, turn to faded denim and ombre denim couches arranged around a blue and white striped area rug. For a finishing touch, a sleek light wooden coffee table, dark metallic shelves and white-painted brick walls contrast effortlessly against the denim.

Accessorize your space with a light wash denim throw blanket and pillow: Meanwhile, varying shades of light denim can help you to adopt the trend without an overwhelming effect. Try redecorating your space with a fringed chambray blanket placed over a dark grey sofa. Next, add a bevy of accent pillows in nautical striped prints, solid white and soft light wash denim. The subtle shades of blue are sure to create a calming, denim-infused decorating effect.
