Friday Fabrics- Velvet

Style :
There is something about the cool fall weather that makes me want velvet furniture.  There's nothing like a jewel toned velvet sofa to make a girl want to snuggle up with a glass of wine and wind down.  Luxurious and effortlessly modern, velvet will never go out of style. This artwork by Julie Blackmon evokes the feeling I get from a velvet sofa - feminine and classic but with a twist.  PS...I want all of her photographs.

Here are some of my favourite examples of how a velvet sofa can really be the star of a room.

If a velvet sofa is good enough for Carrie Bradshaw, it is good enough for me!

If held down and made to pick a favourite shade,  it would be the gorgeous royal that is shown in many of the pictures- love.  When we were purchasing our sofa for the living room, I very nearly selected it in deep blue velvet.

I went back and forth but in the end, selected a fabric called cue charcoal (which in hind sight I might not have picked because it basically pulls the dog hair off of my dog but I digress;) because I thought it worked better with the other fabrics in the room and the pink walls. I love how it looks but still mourn the loss of a rich blue velvet sofa.

I'm not entirely sure why that one cushion on the right looks so massive in this picture but anyhow.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
