Leather Headboards adds elegance and decadence to a room. However, it can also make a room appear dark if not bound up with right colors and decorations. Make your leather headboard a focal point in room by warming rest of room with red, orange and yellow. Soften these colors with warm greens and accompany headboard with dark furniture and you have a well-decorated room.
When furniture shows cold, dark colors like leather, rest of room project heat to counteract effect. Otherwise, room too masculine and cool. Complete leather headboards with warm colored walls, like orange and yellow. If bright yellow and orange sounds overwhelming, consider using a faux plaster-style painting using a darker orange and highlight something with an orange-yellow. Brown with yellow and orange tones is also good.
Nothing says sophistication like a bookcase. Plus offers bookcases extra space and space for knick-knacks. Use black bookshelves in a room with leather headboards to keep furniture color scheme consistent. For an even sharper look, consider using a shelf that fits around end. If you are shopping for furniture for rest of room, look for espresso colored pieces. Dark wood complements leather headboard and will add another point of sophistication to room. Using gold or brass colored hinges and handles on furniture instead of silver or steel. This will enhance warm colors in room.
