A great way to mix colour and still maintain a smart look that’s inviting yet a little playful is by using velvet. Opt for 2 different coloured velvet sofas to sit side by side, preferably one main one that sits 3-4 people and an additional armchair using bold colours to achieve a bigger impact.

The bedroom is one of our favourite places to have fun with velvet. Just look at this sumptuous space! A pastel pink coloured velvet as the main feature with a large rug, sitting beneath a pink velvet bed. The great thing about using this material is the amazing contrasts you can achieve. Dark walls colours are a winning look against a lighter coloured velvet.
For instant vibrancy and subtle sophistication, jewel-toned velvets are great! Introduce wood and a metallic finish for a stylish retro look. Image: Sofa.com

5. A grey velvet is always a good look! If you have a separate dressing room, it’s a great way to achieve a focal point in the room, if not, it’s a great way to create division in your space, to define the closet space from the rest of the room. Whether you are using velvet as a main furniture item or as an addition to your space with cushions or a throw, it’s a great material to be a bit experimental with colour, the overall look will be 10 times more effective due to the texture and its appealing quality. Start by ordering samples of a few colours you have in mind; we can assure you the result be worthwhile. (Image: KBH Københavns Møbelsnedkeri)
