Velvet and gold décor ideas for a plush home

 

Give your home a luxe upgrade in time for Diwali with this plush combination of velvet and gold

Giving your home a touch of glam is as easy as accessorising your favourite outfit – all it needs is a hint of jewel tones. And what better material to decorate with than velvet? It’s subtle sheen in precious stone colours such as ruby red, emerald green and sapphire blue can make any space come alive. Especially with Diwali festivities around the corner, all you need to do is pair it with gold accents such as hurricanes, photo frames, small votives for a party ready home. Here’s how you can include this plush combination in your house:

Give your home a touch of subtle glamour with velvet furnishings and dull gold accents.

1. The best part about this material is that it doesn’t have to be used in copious amounts – a small armchair upholstered in this plush fabric will elevate any corner of the house, be it your library or living room. To highlight your seating area, you can upholster your sofa in velvet too

2. Pile up your sofa with cushions in this material to instantly amp up your home. For an even more indulgent look, keep an eye out for velvet cushions with golden tassels or embroidery in rich, dark colours

3. Don’t be afraid to introduce velvet in your bedroom too – crushed velvet duvets and covers will instantly make you feel like a royal. To complement its subtle sheen, place golden accessories on your bedside table or cover your walls with artworks framed in gold-polished/painted frames
4. For Diwali celebrations, invest in velvet covered floor cushions – this will not only increase the space you have to sit in, but will also give your room an elegant and effortless upgrade. Place accessories such as golden cages and thalis filled with flowers around this seating area
5. A neutral coloured wallpaper, with simple gold foil work will inject quiet sophistication into any room. For maximum impact, use it just as a statement wall rather than covering an entire space with it
