Leather furniture is very popular because of its quality, clean look, and longevity, but it can be difficult to work around to achieve a light, airy look in your room. Of course you can use a whole bunch of white and beige accessories, but then it just becomes very bland. Here are a few solutions I’ve come up with to successfully lighten your room while still enjoying your leather furniture!
1. Brown leather is traditionally very masculine. If you compliment it with a feminine colors or fabrics, it will help to balance out the room. For example, use a soft cream or light yellow on the walls.
2. Use your space wisely. By spreading the leather pieces out or adding an upholstered chair in a lighter fabric, the room won’t look as heavy.
3. Use lots and lots of pillows! Nothing breaks up the dark and heavy look of a brown leather sofa like soft throw pillows.
