Velvet is a trending fabric for this Fall, but I’ve loved it for as long as I can remember. I’m always drawn to soft, rich textiles, and velvet is definitely one of them!

When we decided to move our sectional down to the basement TV room and try something new in our living room, the Meredith Velvet Sofa from The Brick was at the top of my wish list. Not only does it have the curved arms and tufting that you know I love, it’s upholstered in the most delicious looking grey velvet fabric.

I wish you could feel it! When I told my girls we were getting a velvet couch, they were so excited to cuddle on it. Ever since we got our velvet breakfast nook chairs, they can’t stop sitting in them. I think they love the feel of the fabric as much as I do!

This sofa is a nice, medium size at 88 inches long, so it fits perfectly on this side of our living room. As you can see, I’m testing out what I’m going to do with our drapes and wall here as we continue to make over the space this Fall. I can’t wait to show you the final thing in a few weeks! I think I’m going to continue the board and batten and charcoal paint on this back wall, but I’m not 100% sure yet!

Another thing I really like about this couch is its chrome legs. It takes this traditional shape and gives it a glamourous and modern edge.

To style this piece for Fall, I’ve added a DIY oversized floral pillow, my favourite Mongolian Sheepskin Pillow from The Brick

… and a pink velvet pillow and grey sheepskin on the other side.

When combining pillows on a couch, a really easy recipe is to use is a patterned pillow + a solid pillow + a textured pillow in coordinating colours. This will give your couch some personality without all of the elements competing. In this case, I’m using a large floral in my Fall colour scheme + a pink velvet pillow to tie into the floral + a sheepskin pillow for texture and warmth. I think this is a fabulous combo for Autumn for both visual and actual warmth and coziness!

I can’t wait to continue styling and DIYing this room to make it the perfect Fall & Winter retreat. Our new velvet couch will be the star of the show, and so far we really love how soft and comfy it is!
