Black leather furniture can be comfortable and neutral, while still offering you the elegance you want to the place. Leather is a durable fabric that – most important – can withstand intense traffic, children and pets. However, leather furniture will make you put up with a financial effort but it pays off in time, since it will last for several years in very good conditions. Also, a positive feature of leather furniture is that it can be restored by professionals and will last you twice as much, without having to pay another big amount of money on changing the whole furniture.
Black leather coaches or sofas can create a more masculine, dominant illusion of a room so, in order to outcome this effect, make sure you sweeten the features with wide, open spaces, full of natural lighting to create the illusion of airy rooms, as well as moderate wall colors – from butter to white, preferably white.
If you decide to entirely decorate the room with furniture pieces made out of black leather, take into consideration adding color to the walls in order to reduce dullness of the created space infused by imposing leather furniture pieces. Stick with light to medium paint tones to counteract the dark sofa and don’t over thing the color palette – almost everything goes with black. For a more masculine and elegant, yet cold effect, opt for gray shades on the walls and, for soothing the atmosphere, go for tan, even gold painted walls.
If you don’t want your room to look too much of a bachelor’s one due to the black leather furniture pieces, make sure you sooth the effect by adding bright color accessories. Start balancing the masculine effect with more feminine, vivid colored pieces like pink, lavender or orange pillows and blankets on the sofa and chairs. Add strong colored, high-quality carpets on the floors and complete the look with amusing wall paintings or decorative wall stickers. Don’t be afraid of mixing and matching colors, patterns and styles – be creative, innovative and always play around with colors for most surprising results.
The whole key into successfully decorating rooms with black leather furniture is to keep balance between two styles – masculine and feminine, and not to be afraid of using colors as bright as possible on walls and accessories, without overwhelming the atmosphere. Mix, match, play and decorate!
