Hi there! I'm Joanna, a guest blogger for Design Shuffle, a premiere sharing destination for interior designers and design fans. I'm so happy to be here with you today sharing a post about one my favorite decor elements, lovingly used leather. Thank you Dream Box Interior Design for allowing me to share this guest post and some addictive decorating ideas with the readers of your lovely blog.
There is nothing quite like curling up on a lovingly worn leather Chesterfield sofa or side chair. Leather patinas beautifully with frequent use and becomes more desirable over time. I have a special affinity for all leather design elements and furnishings. Do you love worn leather too? Take a look at some of my favorite images of leather and other addictive interior decor.
Besides the comfy side chairs and the exotic zebra rug, the sofa in this space is just begging to be sat on. I love the mismatched furnishings and design elements of this room.
Looking for living room design ideas? An egg chair is shown here in the most unusual upholstery, bomber jacket finished leather. It would be so handsome in a pair flanking either side of a large mid-century modern velvet sofa.
An ornately carved French chair is unexpectedly covered in warm caramel leather with a stately monogram giving it a touch of self importance.
Ooh, who doesn't love a comfy leather club chair in a pair? These two are slightly different in style but they work so well with the portrait wall in this entry.
Let's take a break from my leather obsession and introduce my affinity for books of every age, color, design and topic. This library/dining room is a favorite of mine. A girl can dream can't she?
Ok, one more design addiction, vintage suitcases, one can't have too many. Besides they work terrifically stacked as a side table or at the foot of the bed in a bedroom design. Can you imagine travelling with one on a Grand Tour of Africa in the Victorian days? Sigh.
Ok, back to leather. This loveseat looks like it was custom made for this corner. How perfect! Love the swing arm lamp for reading and handiwork.
Books and leather in one spot makes me smile. Isn't this a beautifully eclectic interior design?
