20 Chic Ways to Use Velvet Home Decor for Fall

When it comes to that much-needed fall refresh, there’s little debate that velvet furniture is a must. Velvet is one of those materials that’s soft, sophisticated and instantly adds a touch of glamor to any room. It’s luxe, yet versatile for every style, and creates an aesthetic that looks amazing in bright colors, deep jewel tones and subtle, tranquil shades. So, whether you’re thinking about committing to a velvet couch, an affordable velvet ottoman or just covering yourself in velvet throw pillows, you’re sure to love these 20 rooms that totally slay this season. Scroll on to find your inspo.

1. Preppy Chic: Up the cool factor in a big way with a velvet couch and velvet ottoman in contrasting shades. Pink and blue will brighten any room, and is super easy to accent with fall blooms and accessories. A striped throw rug and neutral wall art can pull the room together in a fun way that’s Instagrammable for days. (via My Domaine)

2. Navy Blue Bliss: Dark blue has been having a major moment in pretty much every room in the house, but it looks especially cozy in the bedroom. A velvet duvet and pillow set makes the space feel luxurious and inviting all at once. Go with a neutral gray headboard, and bring in a woodsy or pink faux fur accent for a trifecta of cool.

3. Hot Teal: A quirky and colorful collection of throw pillows can really balance out a strong color like turquoise. There’s no need to paint your walls teal to get this look (unless you want to!), but add wall shelves of personal mementos and a well-styled coffee table, and you’ve nailed the look. (via Dear Designer)

4. Retro Vibes: This color pairing is the ultimate cheery combo. But if you’re a little hesitant about splurging on a yellow velvet couch, bring in a few accent pillows so this kickass combo can totally transform your space this season. (via Department of Agra Culture)

5. Sage + Pink: Give your bedroom a dreamy makeover this season with a pink-inspired color palette that even your S.O. won’t mind. Blush pink and light green velvet throw pillows pair perfectly to create a totally soothing moment that’s oh-so chic. Add a gold lamp and headboard for a totally romantic atmosphere.

6. Touch of Luxe: Navy blue is just one of those colors that goes with everything. Keep the rest of the room a little muted and add a few pops of pink to balance the space. Bring in lucite accents with furniture and a few earthy accessories for a modern-boho look. (via Emily Gilbert Photography)

7. Forest Living: A green sofa makes quite the statement, but a green velvet one takes it to a whole other level. The rich jewel tone of this couch truly shines next to a floral armchair and a plush rug. Oh, and don’t forget that hippopotamus ottoman. (via Social Stylate)

8. Mauve Gypsy: Not quite pink, not really purple, this soft mauve color is a great choice for a living room where you Netflix and chill. Throw in a few colorful throw pillows and a massively fluffy area rug, and the vibe is set for the season. (via Elle Decoration)

9. Autumnal Tones: There’s no need to commit to a velvet couch. Piles of soft, velvety pillows in a bold, rich color — something orange and coral, perhaps — ensure you can curl up and feel like an extra fancy couch potato. (via The Style Files)

10. Greenery Forever: Nature-inspired pieces always work well with green velvet — they just draw everything back to that earthy element. Add a little playfulness with palm print pillows, butterfly wall art and a bouquet of flowers… well, you’ve got yourself quite the interior moment. (via Cup of Jo)

11. Snuggle Up: Velvet is one of those fabrics that just plays well with others. Here, an emerald green sofa looks stunning with a thick, plush rug, a woven pouf and a wicker side table. Draw in a few more green hues with a huge plant, and accent away. (via Elle)

12. Rosy Shades: It’s totally cool to play with unexpected colors when it comes to this classic rose velvet. Introduce a tribal patterned pillow to keep the look modern, rather than granny-chic, and throw in a tasseled rug for a little extra balance. Just think of rose pink as the ultimate color party hostess. (via The Glitter Guide)

13. Jewel Box: Coral pink, magenta and shades of lavender will bring a soothing, luxe look to any sofa. Pairing those colors with a sassy magenta brings on an edgy interior statement, so pile on the throw pillows and accent with plenty of gold and copper metallics. (via H&M)

14. Sweetest Dreams: With cooler temps creeping in, blankets are out in full force to keep you feeling warm and fuzzy. Forest green velvet is an easy way to add texture to your space and an entirely velvet quilt is guaranteed to turn your bed into the coziest room in the house. (via Jonas Ingerstedt Photography)

15. La Vie en Paris: Navy blue invokes all things glam, especially when you add ultra-modern pieces into the mix. The abstract art draws in a little more texture to play with the dark sofa. Keep the rest of the room light and bright to capture the same fresh vibes as this Parisienne apartment. (via Sandra Benhamou)

16. Swivel Away: A set of soft gray swipe chairs can really make your living room or bedroom pop. Layer luxe on luxe with the addition of faux fur throw pillows for a totally swoon-worthy reading space that you’ll never want to leave. (via My Domaine)

17. Jungle Vibes: Nothing says fall like jewel-toned decor. Just imagine how this turquoise velvet armchair would look gorgeous next to a decked-out tree for the holidays. And don’t even get us started on the mini marble side table… Can you say show-stopper? (via Inside Out)

18. Moody Gray: This all-gray bedroom really pops with a palm tree wallpaper and cheeky neon sign. The velvet headboard blends seamlessly with a fluffy rug and black duvet to create a serious statement. (via SF Girl by Bay)

19. Unexpected Color: Seasonal decor is all about picking the right color pairing. Here, a teal velvet couch looks positively radiant surrounded with yellow lamps, quirky artwork and retro side tables. (via Architectural Digest)

20. Winning Bed Head: Break up the winter whites and neutrals with a not-so-subtle pop of forest green. An oversized headboard is a brilliant way to transform your bedroom, especially when paired up with black and white bedding, gold accessories and a chic potted plant. (via Heatherly Designs)
