I’m not sure if it’s the unseasonably cooler weather (63 in Atlanta in August!) or the school buses pulling up outside our home, but I am completely craving fall this year. And one of my favorite fall neccessities in Fashion is the addition of rich Camel colored accessories. A great leather bag, a killer pair of boots… The addition of camel instantly adds a layer of timeless appeal to any ensemble. Well the same is true for interiors, & I am craving these golden brown hues more than ever right now!
These tones work with a multitude of interiors from modern to traditional, & when done in moderation (not the matching barcalounger & reclining sofas!) they really bring a fantastic layer into any space. I actually have one of these chairs (in our attic!) in black & am dreaming of the day I can have it re strapped in a baseball glove shade.
Another great feature about camel colored leathers is how well they age! Even if there is a stain or a scratch it tends to add more character to the piece instead of destroying it. Perfect choice for an area that gets lots of love be it a dining area or a favorite chair.
One of my favorite applications is when it is mixed with a neutral surrounding. The cognac coloring comes off more sophisticated than bachelor pad. You ladies know what I am talking about! Black can come off a little severe (and cheap if not done correctly) and don’t get me started on the hunter greens & burgundy varieties… When in doubt & desiring the lush look of leather, go for a mid-toned brown. This will always be in style.
Here are a few of my go to Camel Colored Leather Pieces of the moment. A few of which have been included recently in my client’s projects!
