Dress your home in stylish indigo blue

This timeless blue is as fashionable for the home as it is for your clothes.

Today they come in every colour of the rainbow but, traditionally, jeans were made with heavy, twilled cotton dyed a deep indigo blue. The fabric was named after ‘serge de Nîmes’, which was manufactured in the French town of the same name. Denim blue really took off in 1870, when Levi Strauss used it to make the workers’ trousers worn by the trailblazers of the Wild West. From cowboys and presidents to movie stars and housewives, denim jeans have since become the fashion failsafe for young and old alike, worn almost everywhere around the globe.

When it comes to decorating with shades of indigo blue, it’s all about mixing it up. Layer different shades of indigo to create a rich look or break up the expanse of blue with colourful accessories to create a space that exudes eclectic bohemian style. Then again, if you prefer a sleeker, more modern feel, simply add accent hues in warm neutrals such as gold, cream or mocha. The result? A look that’s as easygoing and versatile as your favourite pair of jeans.
