Design Tips – That Leather Touch

February 10, 2016

I love leather, but as with most things, too much of one thing is never good.  Leather is more versatile than one might think, and while I love a leather sofa, in this post I want to concentrate on how small doses of leather can greatly impact a room. The ideal space is a well-executed balance between textures, colors, and lighting.

That Leather Touch

Starting with a leather detail: I love the look of leather hardware – it adds a soft touch which one might find surprising, but compared to a metal pull, it brings in an unexpected touch. I recommend a darker leather that is treated to protect from stains expected in a kitchen.

I love this look.  Rather than the typical bracket, this mix of textures draws the eye in. Simple and classic, this look is a win!

 I love including these in nurseries.  Available in a wide range of colors, these Moroccan ottomans are great for kicking your feet up or for balance as your little one learns to stand.

I love this woven leather basket; it’s a great catchall, but it looks equally as wonderful sitting on its own.
