A Velvet-y Affair

How many times we have complained for the chilly winter!! But we tend to ignore the fact we have not given needed efforts to make us warm and comfortable enough to battle with cold environment. Warm coats, gloves, stockings and even warmth of Air condition/ heater is there; But do you know even replacing the cotton and silk fabrics used in the house (bed linen, sofa covers, curtains and cushions) can provide us much warmth than we have expected ! It's true. 
So, the fabric in the Spotlight is : Velvet . I fell in love with the regal feel, touch of Velvet and warmth it gives is something I didn't know before which has compelled me to use Velvet in most of the part of our house this winter.

Velvet fabric comes in different varieties: Polyster Crashed Velvet to Raw velvet to Velvet mixed with Silk. It's upto you how you select one for your interior. Velvet has opulent look and lush appeal that no other fabric has. While Cotton has its own charm for cool summer, I recommend to use Velvet replacing cotton and other cool fabrics for much needed warmth in winter. Just Scroll down to know why and How:
