Fashion trends come and go as do home design trends, but one trend that never seems to leave us is denim. Denim can be almost any color, shape, size, and design. Plus, denim is durable, comfortable, and versatile so it’s no surprise that it has endured the times as a staple material. From the birth of jeans for women in the 1930’s to accommodate women entering the workforce, to the bell bottoms in the 1970’s, through the rough patch of acid wash jeans in the 80’s to the present in which you can find denim in almost every American’s closet. But the fashion staple, like many do, leaked into our home decor as a lasting trend. It can be a perfect addition to a home, especially if you like upcycling. We’ve gathered our favorite ways to incorporate denim in your home without overdoing it and channeling 2001 Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake.
