A spotlight on…Sydney

We’ve done it. We’ve joined the velvet revolution. Ladies and Gentlemen, please let us introduce, Sydney.

If you attended this year’s Ideal Home Show you may have spotted Sydney in the living room of the Good Homes roomsets and it certainly stirred up a fuss with the bright pumpkin orange making a statement against the paler colours in the room (it was one of stylist Kate McPhee’s favourite items!)

pastel living room ideal home showIf the pale rooms in the Good Homes roomsets isn’t for you, then dark inky coloured walls (think navy, grey and even black, which are very popular at the moment) provide the perfect backdrop for this type of material too. This is particularly true for rooms that are used on an evening, such as your lounge or your bedroom because of the way the light catches on the material making it look decadent, adding interest and depth.

It’s also the perfect accent piece to mix up the textures in a room, without the full commitment of buying a brand new sofa.

If Pumpkin orange isn’t your thing then we also offer Sydney in two other beautiful jewel-toned velvets – Amethyst and Cerulean.

So, whether you’re aspiring to create a classic country manor or wanting to add an eclectic shot to your home, we think Sydney is perfect!

Which is your favourite? We’d love to know! Vote below which shade of sumptuous velvet you’d have in your home.
