Well, my mom might disagree with me on this one. Velvet has been an ongoing inside joke in our family since my grandmother's closet first discovered the fabric. It started with some velvet leggings back in 1990 and after that, it was over. We progressed into full on velvet getups such jumpsuits. She started the trend not you Juicy Couture. Sorry but these are the facts. Velvet became an annual clothing staple, not seasonal. She then started dressing my little cousin as a fellow mini velvet lover. They matched. I am sorry, but it was both hilarious and extremely cute. Maybe that is why I have an undying, unconditional love for velvet and crave it in my home. It is my safety net, much like my grandmothers non Juicy Couture velvet jumpsuits. Times two.
Velvet objects in a space provide a rich and luxurious feel that no other textile can bring to the table. It is luscious, soft and oh so luxe. On a couch, on a chair on a pillow, on a window, on legs...I will take it anyway it comes. Let's check out how my grandmother influenced the 21st century of interior design. It's a fact, she did.
So what say you? Pretty chic, ammmirite?? Grandma has got it goin' on. She always has and always will. Now I am off to find a velvet sofa for our house. Loves! XOXO
