The Velvet Revolution: Go Velvet or Go Home
Sumptuous Velvet – the must have this season
If you are looking to reboot your home for the cooler months, nothing adds instant autumnal warmth like sumptuous velvet. One of this year’s key interiors trends (and a hit on the catwalk, to boot), this heavy fabric has had a major style uplift in recent years.
In more recent times velvet has been embraced as part of a more eclectic, contemporary look, often used to add a luxurious finish to interiors with it’s deep tones and rich texture.
This tactile fabric is perfect for rooms that are predominantly used in the evenings, such as living or bedrooms because it catches the light so beautifully. Soft bulbs bring out the best in velvet.
At ALSO Home we like to use contrasting textures in our interiors – wood, ceramics, heavy-weight linen and velvet to create interest and depth. For a decadent vibe, choose from rich throws, soft cushions or even a statement armchair to update living spaces and bedrooms alike.
The jewel tones go hand in hand with soft pastels. Strong blues, greys and greens mixed with soft blush pink and icy blues give a warm yet calm look to your interiors.
To ensure longevity with velvet, however, we advise sticking with splashes of it in timeless silhouettes. If you use it elegantly and sparingly it won’t date. We design everything in our collection to be there forever and if we hit on a trend it’s generally by accident. Velvet won’t ever go out of fashion. Its timeless and thats why it is so loved.
On-trend, comfortable and luxurious – we have a serious plush crush.
