home: trend [ velvet ]
2018 sees the continuation of velvet in homeware and interiors. This fabric that has gone in and out of favour has a new modern approach to use in styling.
Soft to touch, elegant to see and a great texture to add to a room decor. Velvet, or the cheaper velour option, is the perfect fabric to introduce to styling that fits well with other fabrics – silks, cotton, lace… and it is perfect to embrace the jewel colours trend. The fabric suits emeralds, navy, cerise, deep purple, mustard and other rich dark tones.
