Have you walked into a hand bag, clothing or shoe store lately and thought 'wow, there's a lot of velvet here?' Designers are having fun with incorporating this soft and sexy fabric, and I for one am a very happy consumer!
Now we are starting to see it in home decor, and I bet it will be an ongoing trend! Can you imagine cozying up to this plush warming fabric?
Here are some easy ways to update a room's look with velvet!
We love using soft pinks with velvet. This color is another home decor trend! Try Benjamin Moore's Paisley Pink as a soft muted blush pink color that blends velvets and antique finishes beautifully!
Dining Room or Office
These velvet dining chairs from Anthropologie are candy for the eye! The jewel tones to choose from are vivid in color. Use as head chairs in a dining room, or try just one in your office!
Take a piece of furniture you own already and reupholster it in velvet. Make an old dining chair new again with a bold plush seat.
Do it yourself!
This new sofa from Crate&Barrel comes in a luxurious velvet, AND can be bought in the color mustard! That's right, the rich golden trend worthy color that just puts a smile on my face. Place it in a room painted in Sherwin William Poised Taupe. The warm fabric color paired with the cool paint color is a great combination.
