If you want to give your home decor a makeover, but aren’t sure which direction to go in, give leather a try! With a variety of options and even practical choices, you can create a space that is inviting and unique.
When having selected a fabric you want to work with, it’s tempting to overload a space with it. But even though leather does add great texture, softness, and color, it can create an overwhelming look that could weigh down the space. Typical leather colors are dark brown and black, so it’s often best to choose a focal piece that is leather, such as a large sofa. Then, you can break it up with soft pillows and blankets, a cool paint color on the walls, soft rugs, and luxurious drapery.
If you want to keep things simple, you can also go with a leather that is brighter, such as a beige, white, gray, or even sage green. You can still work in complementary colors with smaller items around the room.
When you’re creating a design using leather, mix in other materials and textures to create a light look.
- Glass or Lucite tables
- Metal chairs and lamps
- Light filtering, soft-looking window fashions
- Bamboo flooring
- Natural grass wallcoverings
Whether you’re designing a formal dining room, a traditional living room, or a modern great room, the use of leather can add a touch of beauty and will fit many decorating styles and personalities. Think about adding leather for these elements:
- Leather sofas and easy chairs, and even recliners!
- Leather dining chairs
- Leather headboard
- Leather-fronted sideboard in the dining room or dresser in the bedroom
- Leather-covered walls in a powder room or home office
