Leather furniture adds a warm, inviting yet classy look to interiors. It is one of the most luxurious and sophisticated materials for home decor. A piece of leather furniture is comfortable and a classic; an all time favourite. Aside from natural leather options, faux (synthetic) patterns are also available in a multitude of colours and textures.

Yet, many people struggle with complementing the elegance and sophistication of leather with the casual playfulness of colourful interior décor. So, how does one use leather pieces when your décor style is eclectic and partial towards bright hues and bold prints? Here are five rules to follow.

1. Blue, Brown and White
This colour scheme gives off a nice bohemian look. Embrace this casual look with funky patterns; include plenty of natural elements, for example - light timber, rattan basket, sisal rugs, white walls etc.

Do not hesitate to add a hint of other bright colours through the additions of  patterned rug or funky throw pillows.  

2. Black, White and Red
A leather couch is always stunning and can also be quite comfortable; perfect for any modern home. And while brown and black leather sofas also look great with a vintage decor theme, a bright coloured leather sofa makes an instant statement.

Pair a bright red statement-leather couch with black and white colours so that the couch itself is the star of the decor theme.

3. Teal, Brown and Grey
Teal and brown are a classic colour combination, but a touch too boring for someone who loves a lot of colours. Add a warm grey to the mix and you have the perfect colour palette for a warm, inviting living room.

Don’t be afraid to add a few eclectic touches like hot pink cushions, a patterned rug or a few bright cushions.

4. Orange, Tan and White
A very contemporary decor palette; this gives you the perfect opportunity to take that old tan leather couch and make it a part of your modernistic decor. Use orange in splashes – a throw rug, or even a few cushions.

Use white to ‘ground’ the whole design and keep it from becoming too overwhelming.

5. Browns with Pastels
Do you prefer your expensive leather furniture to be of a neutral colour so that it transcends trends? That’s a good strategy and brown leather works wonders. From a deep tan to a chocolate brown to a distressed cognac – all shades of brown leather work.

Pair it with pastel colours to soften the look and add a punch of colour - Think light blue, sage green, light brown, soft coral, dusty pink, pale orchid and light grey. Bring in some texture with linen, wool, velvet, glass, and expose the polished wood.
