Velvet is one of my most favourite fabrics. I love its lushness – the way it feels in my hands; its visual movement – you know, the way it sparkles when the sun catches it; and the way it grounds a space when used on upholstery – weighty, substantial and elegant, but not overpowering. And of course, I always feel the addition of velvet throw pillows to a sofa or bed automatically elevates the look.
Velvet is transitional so regardless of how you define your style a touch of velvet will always communicate your love the finer things in life.
So treat yourself. A little luxe goes a long way. Velvet in action:
