Leather sofas and chairs are nothing new, but this natural material is finding its way onto new home decor pieces such as desks, nightstands and headboards. Luxury bedrooms are incorporating real leather and suede to create an opulent feeling that is gender neutral. It is even being used in custom kitchen designs as a surface material for walls and cabinet fronts. Try adding a small leather covered accent piece or even leather lighting to a space for more dimension. Or, choose a distressed leather that lets natural flaws show, creating a more casual look.
Balance in your furnishings is approached in two ways. The first is the pieces themselves. No matter what the style of the decor, you want a balance among the pieces to keep if from feeling too heavy or crowded. This living room is a good example because the sofa has a very hefty feel because the thick frame sits directly on the ground. The occasional tables on both sides are leggy, which balances out the heavier sofa. The style of the table lamp and the multi-light floor lamp also contribute a lighter feeling. The second way to consider balance in a space concerns the placement of furnishings and accessories as well as the size of the room. Big, heavy furnishings will never feel right in a small space and vice versa. How your furniture feels in the space in relation to the doorways, windows and any other architectural elements that are present is also key, and this comes down to placement. To remedy this, it usually takes just a little re arrangement.
