What Houzz contributors are saying:
Warm white lightAt the lower end of the Kelvin scale, warm white light ranges from 2700K to 3500K. This produces a warm, yellow light that is closest to an early sunrise or late sunset.
Strategy 4: Lean on natural materials for warm huesLook to natural timbers and leather to add warm hues to your home’s interiors, without actually adding colour. In the living room pictured here, the tan tones of the leather sofa create warmth in an otherwise plain room. A beige-coloured textured wallpaper and gold accents complete this modern sophisticated look, which comfortably takes its cues from the colourings of the natural materials.
Leather sofas, for example, are beautifully versatile and work with everything from contemporary to country-style living spaces. Their classic good looks ensure they’re never in or out of fashion, and they’re perfect for family homes that need a practical option to stand the test of time. To find a leather sofa that captures a timeless essence, look out for sleek lines and elegant legs.
LEATHERThe upsides Leather upholstery lasts at least five years longer than fabric. Hides are stronger than fabric, stain resistant (in darker colours) and less likely to tear or fray. Because of this, a leather sofa is one you’re likely to keep for half a lifetime. Unlike fabric, leather can be easily wiped down to clean up spills when babies, kids and pets are around … or a grown-up manages to slosh their red wine about.What to pair with leather furniture
