Velvet: The Soft Furnishing of the Season

Velvet is the fabric of the moment. It is everywhere, in our homes and on every Christmas-worthy party dress and for good reason – it looks gorgeous, I really do need some in my home and on my back! One problem however, okay, four problems – four young kids including one vomitty baby. I’m already thanking the sensible me who decided not to upgrade to a new cloth sofa, wiping baby sick off leather is a lot easier, believe me.

Anyway, I digress, today we’re talking velvet. If you have non-messy kids (where did you get them?!), or no kids and an immaculate home (we can’t be friends, sorry I don’t hide jealously well) and want to add some luxurious touches to your home, here’s some pieces that might take your fancy…

After a few months of faffing around I’ve finally decided on a new posting schedule, so going forward Monday and Friday will be reserved for lifestyle, family and kids features, and Wednesday and Sunday will have ALL the wedding pretty!

Happy Friday, have a great weekend! xx
