Soft as velvet

Samantha Gibson by Samantha Gibson

Glamorous and luxurious, velvet curtains and Roman blinds combine tactile softness with a unique textured appearance that creates a chic and cosy effect at your window.  Take a look at the gorgeous velvet and chenille fabrics in our collection and find the perfect look for your home.

This velvety soft fabric has a slubbed effect, creating an intruiging fade-out finish that’s equally at home in a sophisticated scheme as it is in a relaxed and informal décor. For a luxe look, choose this stunning Fascination Ochre shade and turn up the glamour stakes with accessories in gold, copper and brass. Or for a more understated approach, choose a cool neutral, such as Fascination Silver and mix with fade-out prints and cosy woollens for a wrapped up feel.

With a choice of gorgeous shades to choose from, this super soft and tactile chenille fabric is sure to grace any home. In this light and airy hallway, we’ve chosen a fresh and fruity Lyon Apple Roman blind to lend a pop of zingy colour to the neutral scheme. For extra snugness choose a thermal lining for your Roman blind or curtains.

If you want to add a hint of pattern into your décor, this fabulous Mindoro Opal print has it all. The tribal-style pattern is printed onto a neutral background, creating the appearance of crushed velvet which has faded over time, lending the fabric a wonderful vintage look.  We’ve accentuated the shabby chic feel in this gorgeous bedroom with painted floorboards and vintage French furniture. A creamy deep pile rug and cashmere throw add a feeling of luxurious softness and warmth.

Imagine the scales of a silvery fish shimmering in the sunlight, and you’ll get a sense of the effect you’ll achieve with these gorgeous Iris curtains, exclusively designed for Hillarys by young British designer Charlotte Beevor. This textured fabric has a unique finish which feels velvety soft to the touch, but with a hint of shine that’s effortlessly elegant and luxurious. In this very pretty bedroom, we’ve combined the delicate hues of Iris Purity with a romantic Petala Blossom floral Roman blind, also from the Charlotte Beevor collection.
