Using velvet in the living room
First of all, the most obvious way to add some velvet in your living room will be with the sofa.
If you love rich and saturated colors sofas, a green velvet one will be perfect. Its deep color will add an elegant style to your room. Moreover, it won’t be necessary to change the rest of your living room decor as this kind of color works well with most of the styles of interior design.
If you’re looking for something edgier (yes, it’s possible), you can mix a pink velvet sofa with blush pink walls and add some greenery. Obviously, the atmosphere will be slightly more feminine, but the final look will be beautiful.
Our tip : don’t use any brass in your room decor to avoid creating something too kitsch. Instead, you can use some wooden furniture to add a more natural touch. A coffee or a side table made of wood will be a really good choice.
If you don’t want to replace your sofa, you can add a velvet touch in your living room with a small ottoman. You won’t need a lot of effort to find something that fits perfectly with your room decor. Every big interior design brands have released their own ottoman. Some of them have a shiny brass base, others have quite original designs, and if you’re looking for something with a vintage look, you have to go for the velvet fringed ottomans.

A touch of velvet in your bedroom decor
In your bedroom, there are so many ways to use velvet. With a beautiful headboard, a nice quilt, some soft cushions or curtains, it is really easy to upgrade your room decor with this trendy fabric.
First, we are really fond of the emerald velvet headboard (which is a full bed actually) found on the Sf Girl’s blog. This soft material and the deep color match perfectly with the wooden bedside tables and the brass ceiling lights.
Like Mandy Moore (who is the owner of this bedroom – yes, the actress), bring some light in your room decor using white bed linens. It will create a very interesting contrast.
If you don’t want something too deep, choose light reflecting textures. For example, a blush pink velvet blanket will bring a little bit of spring into your bedroom all year round.
Finally, if you’re looking for an Art Deco style bedroom, you are allowed to go velvet crazy and add it at each corner of your room. You can introduce some dark blue velvet curtains to cover your windows. Then, a beautiful blush pink headboard will match perfectly with a kingsize green quilt. Finally, add some brass accessories (a pendant light for example) to complete your Art Deco look.
