Velvet is one of the most gorgeous materials to use, whether its on a couch or as a throw pillow for home decor. I am obsessed with it! It is so versatile, and can work with the most traditional of taste, to the most eclectic and funky. I fall more into the eclectic category, but depending on how and where you use it, it can make a space look warm, lively, fun, and chic. I'm sure we have all seen velvet done the wrong way, the way that makes people think they hate velvet because they remember their grandmas old couch that was worn and felt old. Im not talking about the way velvet has been done in the past. With ornate wood sofas and tapestries hung in a gaudy way. I love the way velvet is done with a fresh palette and modern clean lines. Here are some of my favorite ways to use velvet!
Don't all those photos make you want to incorporate some bold colored velvet into your home (and life!)?? Even if you are more conservative in your style, a couple velvet throw pillows can really elevate a space and make it feel more dimensional. The fabric is so rich and textured, it does wonders for the most basic palette. I am loving pinks, orange and rust colors, as well as golden yellows right now. What are your favorites from the list above and what colors are you drawn to? I'd love to know!
