HOW TO CREATE COSY ROOMS WITH VELVET
Turn to tactile velvet for a cosy interior this autumn. The glamorous on-trend material has come a long way since starring as Nanna’s old couch, making its mark in inviting rooms today with its simplicity, and mesmerising rich texture.
What we love most about this material is its ability to instantly transform a room. Add eye-pleasing texture to your living space with a simple velvet throw cushion on the lounge, or make a statement in the bedroom with an indulgent velvet bedhead – whatever you choose, it’s a sure way to elevate a room to the next level with little fuss.
Styling tip: Avoid velvet in high traffic areas, such as your everyday sofa, to avoid wear and tear.
Less is more when it comes to this touch-me-texture. We’ve already convinced you of the beauty a throw cushion can add, but what about a statement ottoman for your living room, velvet dining chairs to reinvent a farmhouse table, or a striking pair of armchairs dressed in velvet to complement your durable lounge. Our latest obsession at the home is a velvet bedhead. This addition adds elegance to the master bedroom and complements classic linen for a balance of luxe and everyday style.
The good news is: velvet looks beautiful in any shade! Rich colours such as red and inky blue are timeless options, while lilac and blush hit all the trend notes for the season. Choose a colour that speaks to you, and always keep a consistent palette when patterns are plenty.
