Christmas Furniture Inspiration from Velvet Finishes

November 22, 2016 • By

Can y’all believe that Christmas is almost here? It has snuck up on me big time.  Again.

Today, I wanted to share some Christmas Inspiration from Velvet Finishes.

Now in my book, Christmas colours are not always the traditional red, green, and white.

As you can see from my Merry and Bright Holiday home tour I used an array of colours and patterns.
