This month’s Fashion vs. Interior Trends is dedicated to this season’s “it” fabric – velvet. We are seeing velvet everywhere and have absolutely no complaints! From pumps, boots and dresses to gorgeous sofas and pillows, velvet has definitely made a comeback. This fabric instantly upgrades any interior space or piece of clothing due to its rich and luxurious feel, not to mention the plethora of great color options to choose from. When incorporating velvet, we think the bolder the color, the better! We are seeing tons of jewel toned, deep blue and blush pink velvets and we couldn’t be happier about it. When using velvet in an interior space we prefer it to be used in one or two areas max so it does not overpower the room. We love adding a fun velvet chair or bench to a room to give a soft touch, and of course, you can never go wrong with a velvet throw or decorative pillows. Be selective and strategic in your velvet placement to keep the space balanced... it’s fun to mix velvet with less lavish pieces for an informal, yet elegant, look. For example, a velvet throw blanket strewn across a distressed leather sofa is the perfect matchup!
What do you think of the velvet trend? Do you have any favorite velvet furniture pieces or accessories? We hope it stays around for a while!
