Join Ellie Morrison as she catches up with Award-winning interior designer Beth Webb who shares how-to’s on designing with velvet…and introduces her new book An Eye for Beauty: Rooms that Speak to the Senses.

Napoleon Bonaparte once said, “A throne is only a bench covered in velvet.” It’s the fabric of Kings: from velvet capes to gloves and gowns–even when we see a crown–there isn’t anything not to love about the luxury fabric. When it comes to decorating an interior, a little bit of velvet goes a long way. Here are three ideas for how to give your home that royal touch: 

1. A statement love seat.

2. A plush accent chair.

3. Textured throw pillows.

Beth’s new book An Eye for Beauty: Rooms that Speak to the Senses focuses on designing a home to reflect the homeowner and their evolving style. In the lavishly illustrated book, Webb designs each room as an environment that speaks to the 5 senses. Webb explores design in a way that provokes emotion through sight and touch to create the perfect setting for living well. Webb is a lover of clean lines and tailoring, which is all derived from her background in fine arts. Her book provides interior design enthusiasts with the ability to draw inspiration and create spaces that are timeless.
