Idea 1: Country Brown and Grey Shades
Soft fawn hues and subtle greys work well together to create a rustic feel in any room. From brown leather sofas to grey crockery and accessories, this theme offers loads of options to create your own open plan, country lounge.
Idea 2: Wooden Furniture
Light wooden furniture really complements a leather sofa by adding a natural material to the room. Be it a wooden dining table or a coffee table, it's sure to create a stylish finish.
Idea 3: Mix your Textures
For a trendy look, be sure to add a mixture of marble accessories, wicker baskets, traditional books or knitted cushions. Test this out with a few of these if not all of them together. Don't forget that these can be very small decorative additions like vases or candle holders.
Idea 4: The All White Scene
Leather sofas look amazing in white rooms, especially rustic living rooms. That means they work well in rental apartments and you add your personality to the space immediately. A brown, aged-looking sofa will look fabulous in front of a white wall as a centrepiece.
Idea 5: Bring Nature Indoors
This is the oldest trick in the book. Plants are great for relaxation and increase productivity by providing the room with fresh air. They also add that extra country feel to a mundane space.
