Trend Alert: Velvet Crush

There’s something very special about velvet with its rich texture and ability to add warmth to any interior.

This season, velvet is once again proving fashionable with the fabric making quite the appearance in winter interiors.

While a traditional texture, velvet is being re-imagined in contemporary interiors by rich colours paired with wood or metal accents to give a modern and subtle feel.

We love the luxe look of velvet and have put together some simple ways that you can introduce velvet to your home this winter.


In Your Living Room


While the temptation is there to go all out with a velvet sofa, to ensure your living room doesn’t date, why not use velvet in a more pared back style with scatter cushions, ottomans and poufs?


We love:

Velvet Cushion Mercer + Reid Bombay Natural Velvet Cushion $41.99 – available from Adairs

Bailey Velvet Pouf from Pillow Talk $169.00


In Your Bedroom


Your bedroom is the perfect home for velvet textures with headboards, blankets and linens providing the perfect platform for this fashionable fabric.


We love:

Mercer + Reid Victoria Velvet Winged Bedhead in Deep Blue $839.99 available from Adairs


Mercer + Reid Blake Quilted Velvet Quilt Cover In Pink, from $84.99 available from Adairs



Your Kitchen and Dining Spaces

Every kitchen needs a touch of glamour and this Audrey stool with its luxe gold frame and velvet seat delivers just that.   Available from Pillow Talk for $79.00.


Walking on velvet, so soft underfoot is a great way to introduce velvet into your dining space.  We love the Flavia range from Rugs a Million.  Made from a soft viscose, the rugs feel and look just like velvet and come in a range of colours.
