If you want to give your space an update that is seriously high style, look no further than velvet. Pieces big and small look perfect when upholstered in this opulent material, so it's a safe bet no matter what your budget may be. Aside from being soft to the touch, this option is known for its glamorous style that will spruce up any spot that needs a quick boost.
If you’re on the search for something that won’t clash or take away from your existing design, try out an understated look that’s guaranteed to add a cozy touch. Grab some sweater-style textiles and place them throughout your home for an immediate upgrade. Whether it’s a blanket draped over the back of a chair or some bulky throw pillows, this heavy knit material will blend seamlessly into your home while adding just the right amount of seasonal flair.
With the resurgence of '90s trends still on the rise, it’s no surprise that certain materials are working their way back into our interiors as well. Let us reintroduce you to chenille. With its velvety feel and eye-catching sheen, this dense weave can give any lackluster area a much-needed makeover. Couch pillows and throw blankets in an array of colors will turn your space (or patio) into the perfect space to while away the cold weather.
While we’re no stranger to leather seating options, we can’t help but swoon over the luxe option when it takes an interior to the next level. Empty hallways and awkward excess space can get the perfect seasonal facelift thanks to the luxe nature of leather. Benches, ottomans, and throw pillows are the perfect way to work in this go-to material in a new, fresh way.
While this fall favorite is most commonly associated with back to school outfit shopping, it’s time to start working this casual accent into your interior setup too. No matter what color you opt for, this highly textured material will transform any space into an autumnal oasis that is made for cozy days spent lazing around. Upholster a chair in corduroy in order to achieve a laid-back look that will elevate any empty corner.
For those looking to splurge, cashmere is a no-fail choice. Known for being an ultra soft textile best suited to sweaters, it’s no shock that it translates to home decor so well, too. While the price tag may deter some who prefer a budget-friendly refresh, this next-level wool is worth the investment. Skip bold colors or prints and opt for classic, muted hues to ensure your new piece won’t become tired over the years.
