Loving Leather

Every now and then, I fall in love with a texture or pattern that I simply can't get enough of. Normally, I'm craving something simple and feminine, such as a bursting floral print or linen and canvas materials.

Yet now? Now, I'm falling hard for leather. I don't know what began the obsession, really, other than the fact that I've been incorporating more and more leather pieces into my wardrobe lately. From belts to boots and gloves to glasses, I'm grabbing anything leather I can get my hands on.

And although I never thought I'd be the one to say this, I'm realllly pining for leather in my home. It's just so… masculine, but yet so, so cozy. In fact, a rugged, lived-in Chesterfield sofa sounds like the perfect cup of tea on these winter evenings.

I'm giving my wee little obsession six months before I pounce on re-decorating with leather club chairs, heavy throws and the like. Who knows? By that time, I just might be craving suede!

Naturally, I'm curious: Do you guys go through mini obsessions with your decor and furnishings? Do you follow through immediately, or wait a bit before purchasing? Spill!
