For me, velvet makes me think of royalty, childhood Christmas dresses, and most importantly the velvet Elvis painting that was in my 7th grade history teacher's classroom.
Velvet brings on all sorts of thoughts and feelings. But something that velvet should make everyone feel when used in interior design is warmth. I think adding velvet to any room no matter how cold the rest of the decor can bring an element of warmth like no other fabric. It is a fabric that can be used anywhere. Whether it be a sofa, drapes, or a tufted head board. Adding a simple pop of velvet is fantastic almost anywhere
Here are a few examples of how velvet really enhanced some great spaces and pieces.
