LET’S TALK VEL­VET

Country Homes & Interiors - - THE HOME OF MODERN COUNTRY -

Add a touch of glam­our to your home with plush, vel­vet-dressed fur­nish­ings and tex­tiles in sul­try tones

Wel­come by­gone-era glam­our into your home and rel­ish the strok­able. Lux­u­ri­ous and eclec­tic, vel­vet gives fur­nish­ings a deluxe up­date this sea­son. In a sul­try pal­ette of jewel tones, th­ese dra­matic looks have a rich, her­itage-meets-fash­ion at­ti­tude. Soften hard ar­chi­tec­ture by lav­ish­ing touches of pome­gran­ate, mid­night teal and emer­ald for­est with hum­ble, nat­u­ral tex­tures like ex­posed wood. Chan­nelling Baroque grandeur, this is all about jux­ta­pos­ing op­u­lence with an hon­est, rus­tic foun­da­tion.

Love this Look? then try…

Get­ting bold with colour choices! Make a tex­tu­ral ‘wow’ state­ment with a sofa or snug­gler in be­witch­ing up­hol­stery.

Touch-tac­tile walls, with con­tem­po­rary flock-ef­fect wall­cov­er­ings that show­case ex­quis­ite bead­ing tech­niques.

Cre­at­ing a Twen­ties am­bi­ence with vel­vet drapes and Art Deco-style light­ing.
