Color and Texture Combo: Dark Leather and Glossy White

Dark, rich leather and glossy white are such a sophisticated pair. The stark color contrast, combined with reflective textures, creates an exceedingly chic and modern look.

The most obvious way to pull this off at home is to choose leather upholstery and go for glossy white with your accent furniture (side table or coffee table, for instance). But if you're willing to go bold, glossy white walls and flooring paired with leather furniture can also be gorgeous.

We think this combo is most successful when the rest of the room is kept simple, mostly white or neutral with a few pops of color. Working in some more organic textures, like a knit throw or a felt or rough-pile rug, will also help to soften the look.

What do you think? Is this a combination you could live with?
