You would think that someone who writes an interior design blog is all easy and jumpy when it comes to changes in the home, right? I tell you what: I am not that kind of guy. Currently I am pondering a tremendous change for my living room (at least I consider it tremendous): I am thinking of getting a leather sofa! Yes, one of those beautiful brown leather sofas. Not dark brown, more like cognac. But why a leather sofa? Well, I really like how those brown leather sofas look in a boho interior. That mix of patterns, colours, fabrics and the raw brown leather – it seems like a perfect match to me.
Now I admit: Making such a decision ain’t easy. Moreover, the fact that my current BoConcept sofa is not really old nor worn out make it even trickier. Many questions pop up. Is it reasonable to exchange the sofa now? What will I do with my current sofa? Additionally, the new sofa I have in mind is a tad bigger – is that smart for my small room? Well, all good questions. But when it comes to interior questions I am so bad in answering them reasonably. Guilty as charged!
To get me into the mood, I was searching for some great inspiration on Pinterest. I have curated a few of my favorite examples for this blog post. I love the look of a brown leather sofa with a kilim rug or a monochrome rug, combined with kilim cushions and throws for extra cosiness. In combination with a low wooden coffee table I think this looks rad. Plus I like the colour palette of brown (leather, wood), blue (indigo), ochre, grey, and even some vibrant red and orange hues. Why not some dusky pink too?
So what do you think of a brown leather sofa? I mean both, in general and for my little home? I might need your collective help! When you imagine it in a boho setting with lots of plants around? Sounds not too bad, right? Right? Riiiight (*squeaking*)?
