Trends may come and go, but there are a handful of wildcards that become staples—one of them is denim. Whether it’s for fashion or interiors, this unique material has become a mainstay in the world of design as it matches almost anything. It also has the power to lend the room a rustic-meets-nautical vibe while giving it a strong color and texture statement.

If you’re thinking about working with this fabric, here are some ideas you can try: 

What better way to bring the beach into your home than with sailing-inspired pillows? Don't forget to throw in a few muted or colored pieces into the mix for a balanced display. 

Have fun with old jeans and patches by making DIY coasters for your next outdoor barbecue! You can also make different designs for each piece and use it as markers to avoid confusing wine glasses. 

If you have a lot of spare jeans, making an organizer out of them would be good idea. This project is perfect for students, crafters or even kids who have a lot of small knickknacks!

For dining pieces that are easy-to-clean and resistant to most stains, try using denim placemats. If you don't want to scour the department stores for these, you can always have them made for cheap—buying fabric in bulk doesn't cost much and neighborhood sewing shops are always open to haggling. 

While using glass vases and ceramic planters give an elegant touch to a bouquet of blooms, it can be a hazard if you have young ones at home. Consider displaying faux-flowers in old jean pockets and hanging them on doors to refresh a space.
