If you love the look of velvet decor, you can embrace it in your home or wedding as much as you can own a blouse or velvet dress. Velvet gives off a sense of luxury, so why not implement it into your abode? Cozy or chic, traditional or more contemporary, velvet can be the sophisticated pop of decor you never knew you needed. We show you ways in which velvet decor, whether in your home or wedding, is always chic!
VELVET DÉCOR IN YOUR HOME
There are so many ways to bring velvet into your home, be it with small touches such as with a beautiful picture frame (you can register for one like this at Saks.com) or go all out with a draw-dropping couch or ottoman like these from 1stdibs.com.
Even throw pillows are a great way to add a luxurious look to your home, without committing to a big investment. One of the other great things about velvet is that it is easily adaptable to modern or traditional living spaces. It can look formal but doesn’t have to. It’s all how you place it, which items you get in velvet, and what you surround it with. When it comes to stains, you can gently steam larger objects, but many say the pile will return to its regular condition if you leave it alone.
VELVET WEDDING DÉCOR
Velvet evokes a luxurious feeling, so implementing it into your wedding décor ups the anty on your event. One way to do this is through furniture rentals. As Ryan Hanson of BeThings told us, “Velvet (or velvet-like (velour) fabrics can certainly make furniture feel warm, inviting, and comfortable.” What better feeling to give your guests during cocktail hour than with lounge furniture such as sofas and accent chairs that will make them want to relax and stay awhile?
While velvet can be used year-round, it is especially popular and works well in the colder seasons. BeThings’ Chameleon Chairs feature velvet covers that make them extremely elegant and just perfect for a festive holiday affair.
If you love velvet, it is always in fashion as part of your wardrobe as well. We show you some options for your bridal party (or even as part of your wedding ensemble), and some simple ready to wear pieces that are in stores now, so check them out!
