Luxe Look of Velvet

Yesterday I was doing one of my favorite things, looking for fabric online. When I came across velvet, not the 80's tacky crushed velvet. luxe velvet in a variety of colors. I pictured two tailored Euro size pillows on our bed for our bedroom re do. A few weeks back I bought some Euro pillows on the cheap at Ikea, but didn't really care for the sham covers. I'm thinking for making some tailored shams for the Euro pillows or pillow covers with zippers. I've sew pillow covers with zippers so hopefully it will come out. I'm going to post a pillow cover how to really soon, some of the pictures I took didn't turn out so great. Hopefully I'll be able to put together a good how too anyways.

I really like the Doux Cotton Velvet Smoke fabric, it should be a nice contrast to the light shades of grey in our bedroom. The fabric is only $ 16.98 per yard, depending on my Euro pillow measurements I should be able to make two pillow covers for next to nothing.

Most likely the front of the pillow will be Velvet and the back a white linen, like the ones below from Pottery Barn for a more tailored look.

I found some amazing velvet inspiration thanks to Decorpad. Loving the look of large orange velvet pillows on the sofa. It looks like the chairs are also upholstered in velvet.

I adore this living space, the velvet couch and hot pink velvet pillows make a bold statement.

I love the soft pink velvet lumbar pillow in the muted bedroom, it adds the perfect touch of glam.

Would you consider velvet pillows? Or are you still picturing 80's tacky?
