Decorbook Classic : Year-Round Velvet Pillows

September 8, 2019



Don't you love this room?   Neutral for year-round enjoyment and oh-so-easy to update each season.  Just visualize changing the summery, moss green velvet pillow covers to russet orange velvet.  Add a few branches of autumn leaves in the vase and some gourds on the table - instant fall.  If new pillows can make a room, think what the luxe look of velvet pillows can do.  I've got a very affordable way to use luxurious velvet pillows in almost every room, but first, let's take a look at some inspiration.


Combine solid velvets with cotton prints.


Add calming sky blue velvet pillows in a principle bedroom.


Consider hand sewing trim for a custom look on a basic velvet pillow cover.

Velvet pillow covers can be expensive but I have a great source.  This week, I bought this black velvet cover (16" x 24" - $14.69 for 2).  These covers are a good quality velvet with a hidden zipper and the price is amazing.  They come in 15 colors, many sizes and are available on Amazon.  Just search  "JUSPURBET Velvet Throw Pillow Covers."

Here's Jimmy leaning on a velvet pillows last Christmas.   This moss green cover (24" x 24" - $20.39 for 2 covers) is from the same source - Juspurbet (Amazon) - and the dark green cover is from IKEA (16" x 26" - $9.99 for 1).


Another trick for any successful pillow is a good, cushy insert.  I use IKEA's  FJÄDRAR inserts , which are 100% duck feathers.  The 16" x 24" is $7.00 and  I use 2 per pillow for maximum cush.  If they flatten out, fluff in a cool dryer for 10 minutes.  Once you have inserts for every pillow in your rooms, you can easily change to a new velvet color with each season.
