Autumn Styling with Denim Drift

This Autumn the world of interiors is awash with Denim Drift, Dulux’s official colour for 2017. At Kouamo we love this calming smoky blue shade, which blends beautifully with deeper indigo, contrasts with crisp white and tones with warm gold, copper, walnut and rosewood. Here are our picks for beautiful interior accessories to style a room featuring Denim Drift.

Rich Copper

Softly polished copper sings against the matt hue of Denim Drift adding richness and warmth to a room. We love these Convert Vases by Another Studio formulated in geometric patterns (From £42). The colours also combine beautifully with their new Timber Tailor Ruffle pendant light - inspired by the craft of tailoring and available in steamed beech, cherry or walnut (£495).

Crisp White

Crisp white lines contrast beautifully with Denim Drift bringing instant freshness and light into your interior space. Our Kouamo Valle de Vinales Lampshade in White Sands is wrapped externally in bright white silk, with the added feature of an interior narrative print in harmonising blue / grey tones (£129). Team with a scatter of Jutias Cushions in the same colourway (£89).

Warm Gold

Combine Denim Drift with a pop of glorious gold to add a subtle touch of luxury and warmth. We fell for these fabulous Golden Fruit Candles by Illume from Anthropologie. Choose from the warm spiced fragrance of a McIntosh Apple, a Bartlett Pear with notes of melon and peach or our favourite - Pineapple enlivened with herbal greens. (£20-£28)

Shades of Indigo

Denim Drift balances beautifully with a whole palette of beautiful blues - including deep indigo and lighter fresher tones. When styling we enjoyed mixing and matching with a number of different blue Kouamo cushions but in particular our Trinidad Cushion in Distant Blue (£79) and Tonga Cushion in Misted Blue (£89).

Walnut & Rosewood Tones

Rich woody tones such as walnut and rosewood emphasise the smoky grey tones in Denim Drift and create a balance of warm and cool hues. We are huge fans of Swoon Editions, with whom we have collaborated, and were particularly drawn to this playful new rosewood piece in the Zabel collection (£199).
