On-Trend Leather Accents

by | Feb 26, 2019 | Uncategorized

Leather in home accessories is currently an on-trend hotspot.  And, it is being used in unusual ways.  The key to mixing leather in home fashion today is with the juxtaposition of texture.  Using contrasting textures like glass, concrete, wood, and textiles with leather creates an Industrial/ Cottage Chic design style.


We first tried our hand at DIY Industrial Chic Leather Napkin Rings seen in this blog tutorial. And most recently, these DIY Leather Accent Pillows.  See our Inspiration Video below.


All of these leather accents can be incorporated into any existing decor. I encourage you to pursue an accent or DIY project with leather that interests you.  There is always a way to make it your own through color and design that will allow your decor to highlight hotspot trends!

If you would like to try some DIY leather projects of your own, the Nailed It DIY Studios are mixing leather handles and industrial brass hardware into their designs!  They will walk you through your project step by step so that any DIY enthusiast can try the trend first hand!  Find locations near you.

Entertaining has never been so chic as seen here with these leather handles created and added to buffet boards!

How can you add leather accents into your home or DIY design?  Whether it is something you make by hand or something you purchase, even the smallest accents can give you the Industrial Chic design style you are looking for and place you on a trend setting path within your own home.

Happy Creating!
