It’s not even September yet and I can’t stop thinking about fall home decorating and trends – specifically velvet. The lush luxurious feel and texture of velvet works year round, but in the Fall I especially crave it. Lucky for us velvet is back again making a major trendy home statement, from rich jewel tones, to clean neutrals.
But did velvet really ever leave? No, not really, it’s a classic choice. Due to velvet being used in more modern designs, it’s been increasing in popularity, and every year it seems to get more in demand. The plush texture works every day in the home, including high traffic areas. Don’t let the luscious texture make you think it’s a maintenance nightmare. Velvet can be made with many fibers, and many options are now being made with stain resistant and machine washable fabrics, making these great options for pets and kids. Our sofa in Performance Velvet has taken a beating with family life and it still looks new, it’s the heart and soul of our family room.
From bedding to furniture, it’s quite easy to make a statement in every room big or small. If you’re nervous about taking the velvet plunge and think it may be too extravagant start small, think smaller accent pieces like pillows, a quilt, or an ottoman. Those wanting to go bolder, add rich velvet curtains, a sofa, or headboard for a gorgeous look. To avoid overkill you’ll want to mix it up with different textures. Velvet works so well with many different fabrics, but I especially love it paired with linen.
Velvet can have a spot practically anywhere in your home. Take a look below for some fall home trend inspiration!
