Well it turns out that today (February 26th) is the anniversary of the birth of blue jeans pioneer Levi Strauss. So, as a nod to the man behind our favourite casual attire today we decided to take a look at denim inspired decor.
While the riveted, hard-wearing trousers were originally intended as practical workwear, the material they are made of has become an enduring feature of everything from fashion to soft furnishings for many years.
So, we have trawled the web to see how people use jeans-themes in their homes, with some great results. Check out these great blogs for a bit of denim-themed DIY, complete with mouthwatering interiors photography for all you fans of property peeking!
