Pretty Ways to Decorate with Velvet
Velvet pillows, curtains, throws, and upholstery add a touch of luxury and glam to any room. Don't think you're limited to red velvet, though: This soft fabric comes in tons of stunning shades. Discover how you can decorate with velvet in any room.
1. Cuddle Up
As if leaving your bed in the morning weren't already hard enough, a velvet blanket adds cozy style to any bedroom. This rich navy velvet throw makes simple white bedding feel luxurious; furry pillow shams and a footstool supply even more texture. Integrating velvet decor in any room adds coziness and comfort.
2. Focal Point Furniture
Velvet home decor can be easily integrated into existing decor. Reminiscent of a vintage smoking jacket, this bold green sofa stands out in an eclectic living room. Details like tufted buttons and bronze claw feet give the velvet furniture piece character and let the fabric speak for itself.
3. Plush Pillows
Add some oomph to a white settee with lush velvet pillows. Decorating with velvet is easy when it comes to accent pieces. Bright colors make the neutral fabric pop, while velvet finishes add a touch of texture.
4. Surrounded with Style
Dark velvet curtains work double-duty in this bedroom. Their straight lines are simple yet sleek, and the dark, thick fabric blocks light for a relaxing night's sleep. It's a win-win for your beauty rest. Give a modern velvet look with decorative trim.
5. Subtle Neutrals
In a room full of neutral hues like gray, beige, and white, let the accessories do the talking. A gray velvet tuxedo sofa complements this living room's monochromatic color scheme, but adds fetching texture to the space while allowing graphic throw pillows to pop.
6. Dynamic Duo
The best things in life come in twos (hello, pairs of shoes!). Your furniture should be no exception. Twin armchairs dressed in violet velvet complement a sky-blue sofa and pastel walls in this living room.
7. Better Breakfast Nook
Whether it's for a quick cup of coffee or a leisurely sketching session, a window nook is the perfect spot to escape. Add extra warmth and coziness by decorating with a velvet-upholstered banquette.
8. Timeless Texture
These elegant velvet dining chairs have a unique honeycomb texture. Velvet fabric designs can add extra texture and interest to upholstery. Their vintage shape, style, and color makes them one of a kind; a simple tulip table and black-and-white wallpaper allow the velvet seating to take center stage.
9. Retro Brunch
Midcentury modern armchairs are perfect for a casual dining room. This room's bright velvet dining chairs, paired with a farmhouse table, keep the room fresh, not frumpy. Gray paisley wallpaper and a neutral jute area rug showcase the velvet's bold cobalt hue.
10. Simple Accent
When patterns are plenty, keep color to a minimum. In this formal dining room, a simple red velvet accent color on dining chairs is all that's needed. The warm velvet decor brings bold color without all the drama.
11. Midcentury Mix
Burnt orange couches don't have to look like they belong in your parents' basement. Bring back the '70s classic color in the form of a modern velvet fabric, then accessorize with patterned pillows and DIY artwork.
12. Extra Seating
A velvet bench serves as a bright addition to this rustic dining room. But it also doubles as extra seating for guests. Pretty and practical? Yes, please. For an extra textured detail, look for embossed velvet designs, or emboss the velvet yourself.
13. Sweet Dreams
Add elegance to a master bedroom with a luxurious velvet tufted headboard. This tufted design, complete with velvet buttons, will have you sleeping like a queen, even if your bed is a twin. Look for one in stores or make a DIY velvet headboard.
