Decorating with crushed velvet may feel like a daunting idea, as this material is rich and definitely makes a statement. Crushed velvet is a material that needs to be used in small bursts to make sure that it doesn't over power a room. If you add small touches of crushed velvet to a room it can create a luxurious tone. When adding crushed velvet you are making it a focal point to make sure you are drawing attention to the correct areas. Be careful with your colour selection if you choose a deep colour such as purple use velvet sparingly to prevent it dominating the room. Try to use different tones of the main colour in your room, using various colours of velvet may be garish and cheapen the style. Velvet lends itself to large open spaces, if you use it in a small or dark room this may appear overwhelming. Try to avoid teaming velvet with bold patterns as this will conflict the room. When mixed with other fabrics you can create a rich blend of textures. We recommend using velvet in your bedroom or living room these areas are usually larger and can be enriched with the lavish tones of velvet.

In your living room velvet works best in the shape of small elements such as cushions or throws. We have a range of velvet accessories for the living room to add that luxurious feel. We love cream and light brown shades these add the richness of velvet whilst still keeping the room light and welcoming. Mix in a textured throw to add depth to the room. If you have a velvet style sofa try to stay away from velvet cushions as this may be over powering. Instead try plain or textured cushions in different shades of your sofa colour.
