4 Ways You Can Decorate with Velvet

Velvet is all the rage right now in the interior design world, and for great reasons. This vintage trend will remind you of yesteryear (art deco era and 1970’s specifically) while transforming a living space into an elegant oasis. Consider decorating with velvet in your home using these four methods.

Velvet Sofa

Crushed Velvet Sofa

A crushed velvet sofa will do wonders for your living room. It’s an easy way to make the room pop. Consider deep, rich tones like a navy blue or forest green. Jewel toned shades of purple also look great on velvet sofas. Just keep richer tones in mind when shopping for the perfect color.

Mohair Bed

Mohair Velvet Headboard

Made from the Angora goat, mohair velvet is thick and durable but lacks the sheen that other forms of velvet possess. It’s durability makes it the perfect choice of fabric for a headboard. It also adds a layer of subtle sophistication to your bedroom decor.

Velvet Curtains  source

Velvet Curtains

Velvet curtains can add an element of mystery and formality to a room, so naturally, they look best in libraries, studies and formal dining rooms. When choosing velvet curtains, try to go with paler colors. Be aware that velvet is a heavier fabric so if you want something a bit lighter for your curtains, this might not be the right option for you.

Living Room Chair

Dining or Living Room Chairs

Make a statement in your dining room with luxurious velvet dining chairs, like this one featured on MyDomaine . Or, choose a brightly colored velvet chair to create an elegant statement in your living room like the Dundi Chair . The rust orange color and large size make it the perfect chair to relax in after a long day.

How will you incorporate velvet into your design theme? We hope these tips will help you improve your interior design theme and assist you in figuring out which velvet decor will best suit it.

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
