little bits of velvet

lately ive been noticing little bits of velvet here and there. it seems that many of the photos i have pulled in the last little while have incorporated velvet fabrics into their scheme. i love the bit of luxury and instant depth it adds to these interiors
i first started thinking about the material after spying this handsome devil a few months ago

these interiors all seem to remind me of a tucked away country home & the velvet effortlessly adds qualities of a more relaxed, lived in vibe, something im quite fond of. while avoiding feeling too formal or fussy. which is what i normally equated with velvets. im not sure how well velvet would sit in my san francisco apartment however. does the fairly temperate climate really suit such a material?

  1. There is something wonderful about velvet and it's surprisingly durable too. I'm always drawn to vintage velvet chairs with their crazy orange and gold colors. Plus, you can pick one op on Craigslist for a song.
