Fresh mountain spirit pervades this adventurous and inviting look, so embrace your inner pioneer and go wild with the Sierra Nevada collection. Give cool, tough walls and floors a rugged edge with rich, earthy distressed leathers, hides and hardwood to really pack your room with character.
It’s a welcoming look that lends itself well to rooms where you entertain – and particularly suits a lounge or open-plan space. The warm tones of wood and leather blend with brushed metals and industrial accessories to create a cool, creative ambience in which to relax with friends.
How to Get the Look
The Caruso sofa range fits in perfectly here, with its beautiful outback tan leather and timeless design. The deep cushioning of the seats and back make the set hugely comfortable – while the nature of the marks on the leather mean that little scuffs here or there will only add to its charm.
Faux fur and rough cotton cushions give comfort and richness, but keep colours muted for a ranch-like vibe. The Chicago Feath Cushion with its subtle tones and strong linear pattern is ideal, as is the super-fluffy Mongolian Natural Cushion.
No mountain pad would be complete without an animal hide, and the 100% leather Rodeo Rug or Cowhide Rug will fit right in. Cow horns and deer antlers also fit right in to the Sierra Nevada look and can be sourced responsibly in antique shops or online.
For music lovers, framed album covers of our favourite music artists make for great wall art – such as Elbow’s fourth album ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’. Printed on high quality heavyweight matt-coated paper, its rusty, terracotta tones contrast beautifully against its deep black frame.
If socialising and house parties are your thing, a Foosball table is ideal – but a super stylish one is even better. This luxury antique-looking Foosball Table is made from reclaimed wood and industrial metal parts – so your cool credentials have conscience.
Deliberately textured surfaces are important in this look, hence the exposed brickwork and wooden slats in the ceiling. But it pays to combine the rough with the smooth and the handcrafted Vega Coffee Table provides a clever contrast. Its cast-iron legs and natural, organic spirit really work well here.
Add industrial accessories for a contemporary, urban edge to your design scheme, such as the Large Metal Skeletal Wall Clock I’ve chosen in the main picture. These Black Office Desk Lamps made from cast iron are also perfect – position on black stools for a quirky alternative to a traditional lamp table.
No matter how urban your lifestyle, adding a little mountain chic to your home can bring a depth and comfort to your décor that guests will enjoy.
