LET’S TALK VELVET
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.
