What's your thoughts on velvet?
My initial thoughts on velvet are the memories of my parents brown velvet lounge suit in the good lounge room from when I was a little kid. I'm sure big brown velvet lounges were HOT STUFF in the late 1970's early 80's but it's not a great visual to have stuck in your head whenever you hear the word 'velvet'.
I've seen some velvet lately used in interiors and it's turning me around.
Check out these beautiful rooms...
How plush does that velvet lounge look and the colour is amazing! (love the pops of pink and the wall colour, and the detail on the fireplace too).
Again, the velvet makes this grey colour look incredible, look at the way it picks up the light.
The black butterflies above the bed are cool, but they would scare me like a swarm of insects were going to attack me in my sleep :)
That blue of the bench is beautiful and I love the way it links to the colour of the chandelier too, really looks great with the pink and white.
Very soft and feminine little skirted stool. It also softens the cold, stark, shininess of the mirrored dresser table.
So what do you think? Have I reprogrammed your brain from any bad velvet memories too?
Have a great Tuesday everyone,
