Instructions

  1. 1

    Determine the central piece of the room you are decorating. The central piece can be a couch, rug, table or chair. Base your colour scheme on that focal item.

  2. 2

    Pick the dominate material for the room. Leather is recommend for furniture that gets heavy use due to the material's durability.

  3. 3

    Accessorise each piece with items that match in colour, but are constructed of different materials. Place fabric throw pillows on a leather couch of the same colour, or use a leather ottoman with a coordinating fabric chair.

  4. 4

    Add more accessories to the room using the inside-out method. Work from the central piece out to the walls . Add end tables, coffee tables, lamps, curtains, paintings and so on, all while maintaining the colour theme.
