Shades of Blue: Has our Blue Jean Fetish Driven the Current Home Fashion Color Trend?

Are blue jeans the dominant staple in your wardrobe? My guess is that your answer is yes!  Myself along with a large portion of retail professionals are jean-a-holics!  We wear jeans every day and the High Point Furniture Market is no exception.  It got me thinking about the blurred lines between fashion and home decor!  Let's discuss some examples…



We accent dark jeans with animal print the same way we accent a dark sofa with bright-patterned pillows!





We dress up faded blue jeans the way we put a new shade on an old lamp!

Our shoes and boots are as important as the finish on a carved wood chair… it's all in the details!

We add bright accents of color in jewelry, ties, & scarves the same way we add colorful accessories to our homes!





The question is… are we blue jean lovers trend followers or trend starters?
