Maybe you’ve worn chambray, denim’s softer sister, before in a comfy shirt, dress, jacket, or pants. But have you ever thought about incorporating it into your home? Like denim, chambray comes in many different shades of blue, from whisper light to almost navy, making it a versatile accent for a number of different decor styles—preppy, modern, coastal, and even boho. But unlike denim, chambray is known for its softness, meaning it’s an especially well-suited option for things like bedding and linens.

Blue chambray pairs nicely with most colors and adds an airy, sophisticated touch wherever you decide to put it. It can also be a relaxing, calming hue, which is perfect for bedrooms and baths. If you want to go subtle, try incorporating the trend with small tabletop touches like napkins or placemats. If bold is more your speed, work this shade into larger linens like blankets or sheets. Ready to embrace the chambray home trend? Here are some easy ways to incorporate chambray into your home without investing too much time or money.

Chambray Shower Curtain

Add a boho touch to your bathroom with this geometric diamond embroidered chambray shower curtain. Dark toned shower curtains sometimes can close a space off, but this chambray one is the perfect shade for keeping a small bath feeling breezy.

Another easy way to dip your toes into a new trend is by playing with cloth napkins. These napkins can add a rustic or preppy pop to your place settings, depending how you style them. Incorporate wood and greenery for a rustic feel, or keep it neutral with whites and creams for a preppy vibe.
