More velvet details...


I still have a velvet obsession and current sourcing some lovely fabric to make delightful pillows for my shop in the most delicious colours. It's funny though, I was chatting with someone the other day who said they have a fear of touching velvet because of the texture and even the thought of it gives them the shivers! They compared velvet to the skin on a peach! For me, it's just so luxurious, soft and glamourous, with a feather insert, it just is a treat in a living space! Kellie xx

  2. Hay Kellie I love velvet too and was lucky enough last week to be given two bolts of red and blue velvet. The man was an upholster in his day and thought I might be able to use it. What a score. Sandy x

  4. I've met people who don't like peaches because of the "fuzziness". I guess diversity makes us all interesting though. I like velvet for winter.

  16. Hello Kellie,
    just discovered your blog on the other side of the world (I'm dutch and live in Germany with my family). I adore your two girls and the colours in your blog. It's so beautiful, almost surreal.
    Many greetings from Marjan

  17. I absolutely love the look of velvet but, unfortunately can not bear to touch it, it sets my teeth on edge instantly.

    I'm like that too with peaches, I must cut them with a knife and make sure I don't bite the delicious skin.

    Thank goodness velvet pants aren't in fashion, the sound of the legs brushing against each other as people walked by would drive me crazy!
