Rihanna’s CV spans music, fashion, and beauty, but her latest social media posts indicate a flare for another art form, too: interior design. The “Anti” singer recently shared a series of sultry photos on Instagram to tease the summer collection for her lingerie line, Savage X Fenty. In them, she’s modeling new lingerie against the backdrop of dark lilac velvet curtains — a design decision worth imitating and incorporating into our own spaces. 

“it’s a good day to be savage,” Rihanna captioned one Instagram post, in which she’s holding up a copy of Playboy. The smooth velvet curtains may not be the first thing (normal) people notice in a post that features Rihanna in her literal undies, but it will jump out to those who spend hours on Pinterest for home design inspo and people who watch way too much HGTV. (It’s me. I’m people.) 

Velvet sofas, headboards, and throw pillows have long had their design moments, so why not velvet curtains, too? Below, a compilation of velvet curtains to channel your inner Rihanna. We did the work, work, work, work, work of finding these shopping options, so you didn’t have to. 

Macy’s carries Harper Velvet Absolute Zero Blackout Window Panel Curtains, on sale for $24.99 (original price $85), that combines fashion and function with its velvet linens and blackout lining to block out the early morning sun. Dreamy color options include plum, blue, blush, and snow. 

West Elm has Luster Velvet Curtains, on sale for $82+ depending on size (original price $109+), in a regal golden oak, one that will serve as a luxurious statement piece in any room. 

For those who love a little zhuzh, Target carries Velvet Curtain Panels with Tassels, $30+ (depending on size), available in a soft pink blush and/or a dramatic teal green. 

Finally, Amazon carries Lavender Velvet Blackout Curtains, $51.99+ (depending on size), that are a bit softer in hue from the ones seen in Rihanna’s Instagram posts. 

We’ve got curtain love on the brain.
