Trend Alert: Velvet Bedding
Our latest Trend Alert features a specific type of bedding that is perfect for layering during the colder months! And that is – Velvet Bedding! If you follow along with interior designers, bloggers and keen DIY’ers on Instagram, you may have already noticed this type of bedding become popular. So let’s take a closer look at Velvet Bedding!
Why we love it!
Velvet bedding can instantly make a bedroom look more premium! Not to mention that it’s soft to touch and ideal for keeping you warm during the cooler months of the year. So long as the velvet bedding is well cared for during laundry and all instructions are followed, they can last a lifetime!
How to use Velvet Bedding.
Using velvet bedding in your home is relatively straightforward! Instead of using a cotton-based quilt or duvet set, you’re using a velvet one instead.
If you are looking to create a layered look on your bed, velvet bedding can help you do just that! Use cotton bed sheets closest to the mattress, and use a velvet duvet cover to layer on top. You can then use a knitted blanket to finish the look off if you need to! Or simply keep it as is.
It is a good idea to get a duvet and sham set that is velvet because you can use the shams at the headboard end of the bed to complete the look!
What to watch for.
There are some considerations to take into account when thinking of using velvet bedding in your home.
Velvet bedding can make you feel too hot in bed, especially during the summer months. You may have to test what sort of temperatures or time of year works best for you to use velvet bedding, so you avoid overheating during the night. If possible, try to source velvet bedding that has some linen content, so this can help to balance out the velvet and make it more breathable.
Before purchasing velvet bedding, it’s important to examine whether you have any other velvet items in the bedroom. Too much velvet in one space can look tacky and unsightly. To avoid this, let the bedding do all the talking!
Ways to make velvet bedding last in your home
Velvet bedding can last many years in your home due to the warmth it provides during the winter months. If you are rotating your bedding as the seasons change, there is no reason why velvet bedding cannot last a lifetime.
The most important thing about choosing velvet bedding for your home is to choose a timeless color! This could be as simple as a natural color like beige or cream that will work with many other colors in the room or go darker to make a statement, with navy blue or forest green.
Make sure you are using velvet sparingly in the bedroom where you plan to have velvet bedding. This will ensure the material doesn’t overcrowd the space.
