Velvet Crush

Happy Fall, y'all! We're back - and we’ve got a lot to catch up on : ) Make sure to be on the lookout for weekly posts on some of our favorite trends and designers, as well as updates on projects new and old.

The crisp, autumn weather in Houston this week, as temporary as it may be, has us dreaming of ways to incorporate fall fashion trends into our wardrobes and homes. 

Some of our favorite looks for this season were subtle, as well as head-to-toe ensembles in velvet. This fabric is irresistibly touchable, yet sophisticated and durable - a perfect combo for the home.

Unlike in fashion, trends can be a risky investment in the interior design world. Will you still love it for years to come? The key, we believe, is sticking to something that you’ll love no matter if it is “in” or not. A closet staple, velvet has appeared on the runway season after season, proving that some trends are timeless.

Luxe and sumptuous, this fabric adds a warmth and coziness to a room that neither cotton nor linen can do alone. 

Velvet adds formality to a space when tightly upholstered in rich colors and paired with traditional pieces.

Of course, we’d be remiss without mentioning that velvet can be a significant financial investment. If you’re skeptical about committing to a large quantity, we suggest adding something simple and unexpected like velvet pillows or a trim to drapery, which can be equally as successful in creating that desired warmth!
