The velveteen habit.........

Good late Monday afternoon sweetpeas, and how was your weekend? Ours was unexpectedly relaxing, spent a lot of time at home (always a treat) as we were trying to dig out of the approx. 22 inches that fell around here! It was quite the snowstorm. If you missed my pictures, seeing is believing you must check it out, click here. Now that mother nature has shown us who's in charge...I am totally ready to zoom into spring!

How I love velvet.... I actually always have had a thing for it but in recent years, my love has escalated to an obsession. And there's no cure in sight. Kind of like the blue and white affliction....oh well at least it's all in the name of beauty. I adore velvet, its luscious texture, soft sheen and coziness make it a fabric I could easily have in every room.

It is as beautiful in a living, dining or library as it is a study or bedroom. Add a beautiful trim to a solid color velvet and the result is nothing short of spectacular! As I am decorating my own home, I have more than a handful of ideas of how and where I plan to incorporate velvet. And seriously this is one fabric that looks just amazing in every single color, I have yet to see a color it doesn't rock in!

Stunning! Velvet is so beautiful in a rich hue like this blue, and the tufting is like the icing on the cake! Atticmag

So..what do you think? Does this want to make you run out and cover something in velvet? Or maybe you already are a fan? Do you love it as much as I do? What is your favorite way to see velvet? Color? You know I love to know your thoughts.  Have a fabulous Monday evening and start to your week!
