Catherine, Elizabeth and I went to visit our friend Patriciah at her beautiful home inNyarutarama. We had quite a day of cooking and having that girl talk that we all so much needed.
While we were talking and sipping our drinks, my eyes kept wandering around looking at the beautiful furniture and décor pieces that our friend has put together to make her house attractive.
The first thing that catches your eyes when walking in to this beautiful home is the furnutre which is mostly done in leather. With a mixture of ivory leather sofas and black, the décor is exquisite!
Now for some reason leather furniture has never gone away.
Leather furniture can add a lot of character to any dull room. You can work with all different kinds of design styles from a typical bachelor pad all the way up to the family home. It's a lasting and enduring style. However, it can also be a little bit overwhelming and masculine if not well organised. . Leather furniture is one of the most expensive types of sofas out there so you want to make sure that you get the piece that you can use for a long time without having to replace them all the time.
When choosing a leather sofa, colour must be the first thing that one looks at.
Depending with the household, for example ivory leather sofas are not suitable in a home that has toddlers who are just beginning to take their first steps; this age group is fond of experimenting so they end making the sofas look very untidy with drawings. It is tidious to maintain the cleanliness- in such a home black or chocolate brown should be the right colour. Green leather sofas mixed with ivory can make a very bold statement in your home décor, for as long as the pieces are well mixed together to tone down the green.
Leather furniture can lend an elegant, sophisticated and classy look to your home. Lighten dark leather furniture by using accessories in a variety of colors and textures. On leather sofas use throw pillows featuring soft shades, such as light blue, butter yellow and muted orange and neutral-colored designs such as swirls, stripes and checks. For a sophisticated look, accent black leather furniture with white rugs, pillows and drapes; set out vases of flowers for a pop of color. For a contrast to smooth leather, buy a coffee table with heavily-textured wrought iron legs, or set out a raffia rug.
Leather furniture adds a bold look to your home, but the space should be mixed with plush fabrics since they mostly look masculine. Drape a checked fabric over your leather couch, or a blanket in a contrasting colour to bring out the feminine features of the home. A fluffy rug on the floor if is wooden, will add comfort and warmth to the house.
A good leather sofa should not only help one relax, but should also be a piece of ornament in a home. Therefore, it should be not only comfortable but should fit with the décor theme of your home. Leather sofas create a whole new dimension in the décor by making a bold statement in your interior décor.
