Dulux have announced the colour for 2017, a soft timeless blue-grey hue named Denim Drift. A team of international experts and trend experts from different design discipline came together and selected this shade as the one we will be seeing a plenty next year in the world of interiors, design and fashion.
Denim Drift is relaxing and calming and can be used to create a beautiful environment across many different interior styles from casual, classical to contemporary and anything in between. Should your preferences tend towards elegance or edgy, Denim Drift is the perfect paint choice if you’re thinking of updating your space.
Denim has been a staple item in wardrobes for many years as it’s so reliable, comfortable and versatile. We slip on our jeans for every-day wear or we dress them up in the evening with a glam top and heels …denim is our trusted best friend. And just as you would co-ordinate your denims with a snug, wooly jumper or a super glamourous silk top, Denim Drift can also be used as a starting base to restyle your home as you see fit. Think pairing jeans with knitwear, Denim Drift can be styled with neutral soft, tactile fabrics and snuggly throws or in contrast beautiful delicate patterns and prints like a pretty blouse or top. And when it comes to accessorising your look with the addition of a pair of beautiful gold earrings, Denim Drift will look amazing against sophisticated gold or metallic accents in your home. Alternatively, if you want to make a bold statement Denim Drift is the perfect starting point to your space while you let the contents do the talking
The Spring Summer ’17 catwalks in Paris and New York brought us the latest denim trends and it looks like we all set for a return of the nineties with a revamp of denim mixed with pop art, fringing and glam-rock influences in the collections. Marc Jacobs collection featured fun, colourful patches applied to jeans, jackets and skirts (which take me right back to my old satchel school bag back in the hay-day!). And just as rhythm-and-blues go hand-in-hand, denim and leather are a duo that will never go out of fashion with denim paired with black and leather appearing as key trend both front and back stage at the SS17 shows.
In taking the Denim trend and SS17 denim catwalks as inspiration, I’ve put together a living room scheme below using Denim Drift as the backdrop to a modern setting with a glam-rock edge. The room is styled with leather, animal prints and tactile artwork and glamourous sequinned cushions and accessories. All the items are available to purchase online via the links.
