There is something about velvet that’s just feels so majestic, you know? It’s so luxe! So I, for one, am super excited about this trend when it comes to clothes, accessories, and most of all home decor. Scared it’s a little too much for you? Not sure how to make it work? No problem. Keep reading for some tips and combos to work a little velvet in to your life!
Personally I lust over the big ticket items: sofas, beds, chairs. It’s one piece that makes a bold statement. The other day I was at Home Sense and there was this bottle-green, gold studded, tufted couch and I think I may have actually swooned. But sometimes it can be a little too much. I get that. To make it work for you, go for contrast; textures, colours, shapes. Layering in those different elements can help to temper the bold-style of the velvet piece. But still have fun with it! Velvet says, “I’ve got great style!”, so don’t be afraid to show that off!
Still scared of being a little too loud? Don’t forget about accessories! A velvet pillow isn’t too in-your-face but still packs a punch! Are you a little bit daring? Go for a fun print like leopard! The possibilities are seriously endless.
