We’re seeing a revival of the 1960s love for velvet in home décor. Velvet has been making its way into more fashion and now it’s expected to make a bigger splash in home décor in 2018.

This heavier fabric can add some luster to a space through upholstery, drapery, bedding, pillows, and furnishings too.

But as in all things, moderation is key. You don’t want to make it look like your home was set for a period drama.

Touches of velvet are on-trend. Many of the hottest trends this year are combining soft and warm elements with harder or darker finishes. So in this case, a mix of velvet – like a velvet accent chair — with then a shiny, metal accent, such as a metallic end table. Designers say together the heaviness versus softness blend offers luxury and sophistication to a room’s look.

The homebuilder Pulte Homes has called velvet one of the hottest home trends of 2018, and they’ve been incorporating it more in the design of their model homes across the country. They’re using touches of velvet, particularly when showing off some industrial glam to some of their properties.
