How to add a touch of leather
Love leather but not sure how to incorporate it into your interior? Touches of leather have become our go-to pieces at the moment – the leather strap mirror, we wanted to help you make subtle incorporations at home.
Starting with a very small touch in the bedroom or kitchen, we recommend leather handles and hooks. These are great for a touch of texture and a unique element which breaks up bare walls or lots of drawers in the kitchen. We love seeing these added to an old wooden piece or armoire in the home too – perfect for a piece of furniture that needs a bit of a lift.
In the living space, leather is a great addition to add warmth and texture to your communal area, perhaps a feature chair in the corner opposite the lounge? Adding a masculine and feature seat can bring warmth to all other elements of the space. Nothing beats curling up on an original club chair on a Winter’s Day. A more modern approach like the butterfly chair provides a contemporary casual option, perfect for a cosy corner. The Leather Swing Chair on Oak is a unique approach to a leather chair option.
Other ideas for the living room are one or two scatter cushions on the lounge, a beautiful combination of leather on the front and linen on the back? For the best result, Victoria recommends one or two integrated into your other neutral colour cushions – as a guest star, not the main attraction. We’ve even done the sourcing for you – make one your own here.
Better yet – why not add it to the bedroom!
Many of our clients are embracing leather in a bigger way; and our favourite example of this is a tan leather bed-head! Instant texture, warmth and its very own story of natural patterns is a great incorporation for your sleepy haven.
