Warm + Worn Leather

July 5, 2012

Well, I find writing this post from my perch in the Hotel Vancouver…lucky me! I got whisked away for a spontaneous girls weekend (how could I say no?) and the sunshine came out just for us. Feels like summer may finally be here to stay and I couldn’t be more ready! Funny enough, as we wandered the shops and did some window shopping yesterday afternoon, it seems as though fall fashion is already inching in. I for one feel like I haven’t even broken in my flip flops! But while the rain was pouring down over the weekend, I did find myself drawn to warm and cozy interiors especially those including worn, caramel-coloured leather…

While I would very much like fall weather to stay far away for the time being, I really love the character and warmth that vintage leather brings to a space. A hint of masculine yet oh so comfortable, these sofas and chairs make me think of well worn riding boots or that perfect leather bag. Hmm, yet another vintage find to be on the hunt for!

I have to agree with you about soft leather. I’m not a fan in large doses, but accents here and there are so warm and classic. Summer just started here in Portland too. Have a great time in Vancouver!

What’s with our late West Coast summer? Glad it’s finally reached you in Portland Emily!

I couldn’t agree more with you! I love being out and about in the bright, sunny days, but love coming home to a cozy, warm home and these photographs are an ideal cozy interior!

there is nothing quite like caramel leather, whether it come in brogues (my favourite), furniture, or bags it is fantastic.
