Decorating with Velvet

I suppose it’s the heat that has had me stymied for the past week or so but on my drive home from Oxford yesterday I took note of the leaves turning to shades of yellow and red which led to thoughts of fall and yes even decorating with velvet!

There’s just something about the look and feel of sumptuous velvet that makes me want to curl up with a cup of coffee and a good book…

A green velvet sofa is calling my name…

Playfully interrupted with a pretty patterned cushion…

Pretty please in purple…

The headboard, the pillows, the chairs, oh my…

Turquoise is nice…

You know I sometimes have an orange obsession…

I’ve been seeing velvet pumpkins…

There may be some in my future…

I think I’ll just turn down the air conditioning and dream about decorating with velvet!

anybody want to join me?

  1. The orange sofa would make me smile every time I walked through the room! My mother had a light blue velvet sofa when I was little. It was always so luxurious to sit on!

  2. Marsha, I’m in Dallas and it is still so hot here too! Ugh. I love the velvet pumpkins, especially the pale turquoise one. I watched the Rebels Saturday and was doing my best to get you a victory. Have a great week!

      So sorry that the Rebs could not pull out a win but thanks for sending good wishes! Enjoy your week!

  3. I am currently trying to find some silk velvet in order to make these pumpkins. They are soo easy to do but alas, we have no fabric stores around here & searchign onine is like falling down a rabbit hole.
