5 tips for styling a leather sofa
I love leather, both in my wardrobe and in my decor. It’s durable, timeless and fancy. But the problem with leather is this: it’s not really cosy. And that’s what you eventually want from your sofa, right? An inviting place to rest at the end of a busy day. So there’s nothing like some well chosen fabric to cosy up your leather couch. Add some pillows, a throw, a nice carpet or a cow hide. Don’t be afraid to mix textures, print and colours.
There are few home dilemma’s that plants can’t solve, and this is no exception. A touch of green will add a splash of colour to your (probably neutral) couch. Never hurts!
Balance out your heavy sofa with some more elegant pieces. A table with metal legs, frames with a thin border, interesting standing lamps…
If you have the space for it, and especially if it’s a larger piece, place it away from the wall. It creates a more open feeling in your room and the space will look larger, even if it’s just 20 cm from the wall. If it’s a special piece, like the sofa’s above, the space may need little more.
Don’t get me wrong, I totally dig luxurious, dark, eccentric spaces. But if you have a smaller house, try keeping the walls light and bright to balance the sofa.
