Luxe Velvet for You + Your sofa

If you love fashion AND interior design, then you’ll love this post! With the help of Darlings of Chelsea, I predict 6 of the hottest velvet looks for both you (and your home) this Autumn.

Leading fashion designers – everyone from Valentino to Prada to Armani – have filled the catwalk with sumptuous touchy-feely velvet fabrics. With all big fashion trends, it has leaped over into the world of interiors  – starting with a velvet takeover of our sofas.

The perfect everyday velvet dress…

Rockingham Sofa

The navy is the ideal colour for a velvet dress. The colour is smart enough for the office but will rock it at post-work drinks. The same rule applies to your home. This lush blue sofa is the ideal hue for busy family homes. The rich colour will take a good thrashing from sticky hands and muddy paw prints. When evening comes around this sofa looks uber glam.

My tip: Go for a sofa in one of Darling of Chelsea’s stain resistant velvets.

Paisley Sofa

It’s my dream to have a bedroom which is big enough to fit a sofa in. I would love to slouch on the Paisley while reading the latest issue of Grazia. The soft pastel colour is the right shade of pink. When it comes to winter shopping this PJs cover-up is already sitting in my on-line basket just waiting for the next pay check to come in.

Skirt // White Stuff

Stirling Sofa

Green is my go-to colour in winter. Every shade, from emerald tones to soft sages, look good teamed with brown boots and a leather jacket. This cute velvet skirt from White Stuff is a must-have for early Autumn. When it comes to a green velvet sofa, look out for details like covered buttons, swirled arms and plump-padded seats. That footstool is the perfect accessory for your living room.

Effortless tailoring…

Ashdown Chaise Sofa

If your wardrobe is full of sleek outfits, then you’ll need a sofa that matches (of course!). The Ashdown Chaise looks cool and edgy in a modern space but the velvet upholstery gives it a softer feel. Both the suit and the sofa are made for lounging. For a look that will last, opt for a hard-wearing velvet option. This one has a 100,000 rub count which makes it virtually indestructible.

Shockable colours in touchy-feely fabrics… Interior Stylist and Design Blogger Maxine Brady show 6 hottest velvet trends for both you and your home.

Melrose sofa

Dark evenings call out for cosy fabrics. This chunky coat from Mango will make a stand-out statement as soon as you step out the door. Indoors make a dramatic impression with a dark velvet sofa, like the Melrose. Dress with orange cushions that way your home will look as good as you.

Colour pop legs…

Studio Range Sofa

Legs of all shapes and sizes are welcome this winter. I love the 1950s vibe of this sofa with its’ atomic styling, buttons and comfy L-shape with extra squishy cushions. Velvets look best in bold shades  – the way the fabric pile is made up gives its glossy sheen which looks luxe.

Are you a velvet lover?

If you’re after a style that tickles the fashion-lover in you – and your inner interior designer – then think about embracing the velvet trend this Autumn.

Take a look at Darlings of Chelsea website – where you can design your sofa on-line, or pop into one of their four showrooms dotted across the UK. I’m a big fan of their Instagram page or you could visit their facebook page for more styling ideas or twitter to give them a shout out.

I hope you have liked this playful post and it’s given you some shopping inspiration! I’d love to know which is your favourite look and matching sofa (mine’s the pink Paisley and the New Look dressing gown).
