The Velvet Touch

Christina Murphy – Velvet Day Bed

Growing up in the seventies in Belgium, velvet was a staple in our wardrobe and in our home.  From the little black velvet dresses with white lace collars and red sashes we wore every holiday season to the velvet covered sofas, daybeds and chairs that filled our country chateau, we’ve long admired a velvet touch.

Judging by what we’re seeing in home decor and on the runway, either velvet never really went out of style, or it’s making a comeback.  It’s the perfect accessory for the fall and we just love the cozy softness it brings to an outfit or home when the days get colder, especially in these autumnal hues!
