Elle Decor tells me velvet is making a comeback, some of my friends would say it never left the building. I have to admit I'm a bit of a Johnny-come-lately to the fabric (always conjured up images of boudoirs and bordellos, not that there's anything wrong with that thanks Jerry Seinfeld) but there are specific expressions of it that I really, really love.
There are a few things I regret doing to our house when we made it over but the beautiful French grey velvet romans in our bedroom are not one of them. Every morning when I put them up and every evening when I let them down, I love them as much as they day they were installed.
A hurried picture this morning to show you them (note strategically cropped photo to hide unmade bed, ho hum).
A close up of the fabric.
Some other velvet looks I like.
This studio sofa from Nate Berkus, and may I just say it is only $499.90, no fair, no fair!
