Fall Luxury: Blue Velvet

Shak in Style recently blogged about the gorgeous, luxe look of blue velvet, and I absolutely fell in love with the photos she chose, and had to repost them here. I love how rich and warm these colors and textures appear. I've actually owned both a green and a burgundy Victorian velvet sofa, though I would've vastly preferred a deep, rich blue velvet over either of those colors. I especially love this Carter Sofa (inquire at website for price).

To see another blue velvet beauty, just


I certainly wouldn't kick one of these '40s-inspired Salon Lounge Chairs ($3,360) out of my living room, either. And while some design enthusiasts might insist that velvet lends itself to a dated decor look, I have to disagree. Dressed up with the right accessories, it can fit right into any eclectic, modern-oriented interior.

What do you think? Blue velvet fan? Or do you prefer something less fussy in your living room?

Absolutely gorgeous!!!!!!! The best way to get a more "updated" look with velvet I think is to pair it with a very different fabric - add some leather and it is sooooo glam rock.

thats gorgeous, but I'd want to just leave it in a guest bedroom or maybe if i somehow had a huge place (not likely!) with a sitting room. i love the woman's dress, too.
