A blue velvet sofa

Four ideas for a perfect styling of a blue velvet sofa and a personalized get the look.

Since last year, velvet is definitely back in fashion, and today we find it in all the clothing and shoes stores. Velvet is back big even in the furniture industry and in the collections of all the major design firms.

It is the softness and preciousness of the fabric, it is the unique way to reflect the light, it is that it brings us back in time to some ancient building or it is that it makes us think of theater seats… it may be for any reason but luckily the velvet came back in fashion and I’m happy.

And is there anything more chic than a velvet sofa? Chic but soft and warm at the same time?

A velvet sofa is able to immediately attract attention and give a cozy touch but at the same time sophisticated to any living room.

Today, I want to talk in particular about blue velvet sofas. I believe blue is the color that best emphasizes the characteristics of the fabric, it is a classic color that is well suited to the preciousness of velvet and enhances its sophisticated look. It is also a calming and welcoming color that matches well with almost every color and all the interior.

And how do you decorate the living room with a blue velvet sofa? Here are my 4 favorite stylings. And read the article down to the end….I prepared a surprise for you…

1 – MINIMAL: The velvet sofa is itself the showpiece of the living room that immediately fills the room and attracts the looks. A first styling with a blue velvet sofa is therefore the one of simplicity: white walls, minimal furnishings and clean style.

2 – CONTEMPORARY: The idea is to match the blue velvet sofa with dark colors like gray and black and white details and patterns. The effect may be somewhat gloomy but is very contemporary and definitely of great personality

4 – PRECIOUS: adding touches of gold or bronze (for example in side tables, lamps, etc.) helps to enrich even more the environment, and also these details perfectly match the fabric and the color blue. The effect is sophisticated and absolutely stylish.
