Velvet Bedding

In college, I house-sat for some family friends while they were on vacation. And they had a ridiculously comfortable bed—layered with silk sheets and a velvet duvet. It felt like sleeping in a pile of clouds. I’d kind of forgotten about it until I saw this new velvet bedding from Castle, and it took me right back.

Have you ever slept in velvet? George would love it…

P.S. Secrets to a great bed and our bedroom makeover.

  1. Thank you for posting this about velvet bedding. You are so right about the feel of velvet-so luxurious! And velvet and satin together! Wow! What a wonderful way to finish off the day!

  2. I’ve had this dream of silk sheets and different luxurious bedding!Soft Surroundings has some nice things I’ve been eying for years.
    I’ve been thinking of trying to make my own,as well.

  3. I just want to thank you for referring to Seinfeld, it never gets old!

  4. Very well organized bed room. I was amazed with the combination of colors. Seems like those colors were just perfectly fit.

    Purchasing velvet bedding would be an obvious sign telling my man to sleep in the spare room – velvet gives him the heebie-jeebies!

  6. As soon as I noticed this web site I went on reddit to share some of the love with them.

  7. I bought one of their velvet pillows, and was totally disappointed with the quality. I spent WAY more than I usually would on it, but had been lusting after it from their beautifully styled photos for ages. It is not a true velvet, rather a cotton velveteen (the difference is in the length of the nap) and feels very cheap to touch. Such a shame, as their pictures are so so beautiful.

    I had a red velvet comforter that I used in college and for a couple years after. It was my favorite…so luxurious. I got it at a garage sale for $2 (it was originally from Pottery Barn). And don’t worry, I got it cleaned. Sadly I used it so much it began to tatter and I had to retire it.

    I will always be on the lookout for a velvet comforter to replace my beloved garage sale find.

  10. That’s pretty! I checked out their site.. way too expensive for me!
    That clip you posted is like my all time favorite seinfeld quote. I just watched it about 10 times in a row. LOL

  11. I love the idea of velvet! I am looking for a new quilt for my bed, and I want texture other than woven cotton. This would be so lovely and modern.

    It is annoying that you only reply once, to a random comment of the very first.

  13. I used to have a velvet duvet cover. It was a magnet for little fuzz balls! It drove me nuts! While silk is very comfy, I almost find them too “slippery.” For warmth, just give me my goose down duvet and I’m set!

    I have a gray velvet duvet, but sometimes — even in the dead of winter — it can be too much. Especially with you have another person under the covers with you.

  15. hahaha this is too funny. I have slept in velvet before – it’s amazing in cold weather. pottery barn makes a velvet/silk throw that’s simply divine :)

    I was just browsing their website and the “put the love in the coconut” is by them, too, in their pillowcase section. They also have some pretty polka dot pillowcases.
