When adding leather furniture in a room ensure that the surrounding décor is lighter so that it balances.

If the surrounding décor is dark too, the room will appear stuffy and unbalanced.

To make it interesting you can decide to have two to three colors in the same room. This will give in an interesting focal point making the room not to be boring or predictable.
