The mixing of luxurious velvet and simple linen results in a refined interior that also manages to feel relaxed.  These rooms have paired furniture that has  natural linen coverings with rich velvet pillows.  If you really want to go for luxury silk velvet is the way to go.  However, cotton velvet is inexpensive, easy to find and available in an endless  array of colors. When you are designing pillows get the most bang for your buck by having them sewn with two different fabrics.  That way you just have to flip the pillow over to give your room a whole new look.  We love some of the pillows shown below which mix tapestry and velvet.
