Plush fabrics are very much en vogue in UK homes and velvet is the material of the moment. Here’s how to join the current VELVET REVIVAL using our gorgeous window blinds, curtains and cushions.
- Reveal Velvet’s True Colours
Give velvet it’s moment in the spotlight by incorporating it onto window blinds and curtains. One of our most sought-after Roman blind and curtain fabrics is a sumptuous, deep-pile crushed velvet that really generates a feeling of grandeur – especially at the window.
The subtle shimmer, texture, and highlights that characterise this gorgeous fabric are exaggerated by sunlight, appearing more defined as it catches the light and creating a stunning effect.
Silver, grey or red are classic colourways, but for a look that’s on trend, bright fuchsia pink or sapphire blue will really ramp up the drama. A Black or amethyst velvets offer a darkly decadent take on the trend.
- Don’t Overdo It
The best advice for introducing velvet into homes is ‘less is more’. Pick out key pieces within the room to achieve a look that’s timeless and elegant.
Keep the backdrop neutral to achieve balance and allow the fabric to take centre stage.
- But Windows can NEVER be Overdressed
When deciding on the best window dressings for velvet it has to be Roman blinds – the soft folds of fabric are very opulent and it’s a look that won’t go out of fashion. Curtains are another great option for heavier fabrics like velvet, which drape beautifully, framing windows to perfection. Or why not ‘double dress’ windows with Roman blinds and curtains for even more luxury?

Attention to detail is essential for achieving a high-end finish associated with a velvet-inspired scheme.
