  • Is there such thing as having too much leather furniture in a house? Can it be unfitting and unappealing?

    Best answer: You can pull this off with the right accessories. The key to a good decorating scheme is to combine color and texture with proportion for a good cohesive overall look. Leather is classic but can be cold looking if you do not accessorize well. However, if you desire a minimalistic look, that can be accomplished... show more
    Best answer: You can pull this off with the right accessories. The key to a good decorating scheme is to combine color and texture with proportion for a good cohesive overall look. Leather is classic but can be cold looking if you do not accessorize well.
    However, if you desire a minimalistic look, that can be accomplished easily by decorating scarcely with modern or contemporary accents.

    Most leather sofa sets are large, so they can easily overwhelm a room. So, you must pay attention to scale in all other aspects of the room's design. For instance, if you have a sectional or a three piece leather set of one couch, one love seat and one chair, you should not have curtains with a small print or a small printed accent rug. The bigger the furniture, the bigger the other textiles in the room should be. Also, light is an issue. Leather furniture is dark, so it will look nice to lighten things up with a lighter rug and curtains. If there is not a lot of light in the room, it is best to use reflective objects of décor, like metal lamps, glass that reflects light and different levels of lighting.

    Most solid colored couches look great with printed fabric patterns for pillows. However, it is hard to get a pillow to stay upright on leather because is slips and not will remain upright. Therefore lumbar pillows are preferred. Lumbar pillows are pillows that are longer than they are high.

    So, your fabric elements of interior design (curtains, pillows, a throw blanket and even an area rug) are key to making dark solid furniture and chairs look warm and inviting. Also, if you are going ALL leather, do not make the mistake of picking all browns or all blacks......mix it up. Have your dining room a different leather color than the leather used in your living room. I love the look of WHITE leather seats in a dining room.

    Pick accent colors that pop, like red, burnt oranges and golden yellows (think fall colors). You can never go wrong with citrus colors like lime green, lemon yellow and orange. This is where you add the interest in any room. If you have things that will not match your new look, then consider spray painting them. Yes, spray paint. There are so many great colors and some wonderful metal look spray paints available today. So, if you have things you can transform with spray paint, consider that option. I once found a fugly lamp at the Good Will and loved the shape, so I spray painted it and it was transformed to a show piece on my end table.

    If you have a cat, beware. Cats can destroy leather in a week with their claws.

  • Do window blinds protect window from breaking if object is thrown into window?

    I have a child with special needs, who sometimes throws objects at windows. Would installing blinds like the one below protect the windows, by acting as a shield? Or would the window still break if an object is thrown into it? https://www.walmart.com/ip/Window-Blinds...

  • Do I really need a dresser?

    I have always appreciated the mentality of a minimalist, having only what means the most to you and only what you need.

    I have always appreciated the mentality of a minimalist, having only what means the most to you and only what you need. Now, I am no minimalist, because I have so much stuff I don't need but really enjoy. However, this makes me unorganized, so I have begun cleaning out my bedroom and getting rid of the things I don't need anymore. I have 2 dressers, both of which are now completely empty (all except for 2 drawers which contain socks, underwear, ties and pajamas and can be put into 1 drawer easily). Everything else has been either sent to a store, to a donation bin, or to my closet. I have permission from my parents to get rid of one dresser, but not both, even though I can easily put the little bit I have in one dresser into a smaller container, and put that in the closet, or get a small nightstand and put them in there. Either way, I see no use out of holding onto a dresser that would be serving no purpose other than to be taking up space. All of these things being said, I am trying to convince my parents to see my perspective. I respect their wishes, but I also don't see the need to hold onto something I am not using. How can I better explain this to them, or are they right that I still need a dresser?

    Does anyone know where I can buy this micro-fridge cabinet online?

    My family owns a small lodge, and we're currently renovating our rooms. We'd like to purchase the coffee-bar cabinets that you often see in Hilton Hotel rooms that allow spaces for a fridge and microwave. I have a picture attached below!

  • How can I attach a cabinet to my wall if there are no studs in the wall?

    It's a bathroom cabinet, it's quite heavy and I only just found out there are no studs in the wall! Is there any way to hang it without studs? It weighs about 20kg and the wall is just dry wall.
