How to decorate your home with velvet this fall season

Often used by European royalty and nobility during the 16th + 17th centuries, velvet is a timeless fabric that is synonymous with luxury. There are many ways to decorate with this lush fabric. One of our favorite ways to incorporate velvet in the home is through the use of throw pillows. Updating decor in your bedroom with throw pillows is an easy way to accessorize your space. In this particular cool, neutral room we added rose velvet throw pillows to add a warm focal point on the bed. There are many reasons why we love velvet, it adds depth and texture, rich color and effortlessly mixes well with other textiles. We firmly believe that home decor should be beautiful, approachable and best of all— functional.
