I’ve followed fashion blogger Aimee Song’s success from way back in the day, way before she had taken over the world with her amazing blog, Song of Style.

The reason I fell in love with her was because she blended fashion and interiors so seamlessly, something at the time I craved doing. Six years later and I’m doing just that, which is why today I wanted to give you a little glimpse into the home of Song, and also how you can achieve a little bit of her eclectic style yourself.

The focus of the room has to be this amazing blue velvet sofa. I posted a little while ago about having the blues over not owning a velvet sofa, but having two cats with sharp claws meant it would be an expensive risk to take. But if you’re sans cats then I found this amazing Barbican Loveseat in a deep blue, which looks far more expensive than it actually is – plus, I’m totally in love with its retro, art deco vibe.

So we have our sofa, now we need a side table. I sourced this amazing gold and glass design from Wayfair and if this catches your eye then snap it up now as it’s currently in the sale – I’m currently considering whether to get it on payday.

As you can see, Aimee isn’t afraid of colour, and H&M came up trumps with this yellow velvet cushion, constrasting perfectly with the deep blue.

Instead of the dalmatian print rug you can see above, I went for a zebra print, which still looks equally as striking.

Of course, the walls have to feature some abstract art, and this beautiful piece is from Minted, an online company I’ve used on two occasions and have never been disappointed. The table lamp I’ve chosen, meanwhile, is kind of a love/hate piece. Personally, I love it, but I can see how the kitsch fish scales might be a little too much for some people’s taste.

I really like how this look has come together and all from shops which are easily accessible to the likes of me and you, not just millionaire blogger extraordinaries. I’m torn between the sofa, the artwork and the side table as my favourite find. Are you a fan of this look?

  1. Love your interpretation – her home is stunning and you've captured that fabulously! Also, velvet in my own experience (I've owned 3 cats although only 2 at a time) cats don't care to mess with velvet furniture. They only like stuff with loops that they can get their claws into (it removes the top layers of the claw when they pull keeping them sharp) so they won't be able to scratch it because velvet is a non-looped fabric. So if you still want a velvet sofa, there's no reason to worry. My velvet sofa and velvet love seat still look as good as the day I bought them (5 years ago now) 😉 It's actually a great fabric to have if you have cats! xx

    1. Oh thanks so much lovely! That's good to know! I'm actually lusting over a pink velvet armchair so now I know this I can decide whether to splash out or not! 🙂 xxx
