Decorating With Leather Furniture

Leather furniture can look cold and uninviting. But there are lots of ways to warm it up. 

My furniture, just to be transparent, is not real leather. But it looks the same.


By choosing one color palette, in this case shades of blue, these accessories gives your room a very unified look.

This chocolate brown couch/chaise and ottoman is rich in depth. If you like a neutral palette, you can liven it up with light accessories and give it texture with greenery. 

This chair might look a bit lonely in this corner, if not for all the green plants that adorn the room. Plants lend life, color and texture to the setting.

You can procure a more rustic look with the proper accessories. Adding varied casual pillows, flowers and lamps lends a warm farmhouse feel to the room.

This look is more contemporary and classic. The caramel sectional is played up with darker brown tones with the addition of the bookshelves, end table and coffee table.

A gallery wall, with objects collected in primarily one color hue, gives this room personality. The wicker coffee table adds texture. 

This living room with two leather chairs are played up with the choice of pillows and the patterned ottoman serving as a coffee table.

Anchored by a beige area rug, this room looks polished and cozy.

This is more of a feminine look with the pink blush and white accessories. 

Black and white is always in style and lends a touch of elegance.

These two chairs are a comfy alternative in front of bookshelves. Add a pretty pillow and some layered paintings and you've got a nice little library reading spot.

Accessories are key to adding more warmth to leather and leather-type furniture. 

So many decorators go for white. And I think that is a beautiful look. But if you have children or pets, sometimes that's just not in the cards.



  1. So pretty. I love the touch of gorgeous leather furniture and the look.

  2. I love my leather chairs! I just pray that my old girl doesn't tear the leather jumping up and down - she struggles so much to get up there now. Poor old girl!

  3. I could never entertain leather anything, to me its the coats of so many animals that have been cruelly killed for human use.

  4. Wendy is a ball of fun.

    Sorry, I couldn't help myself lol
