We no longer add border. We do a stone or stainless backdplash.
As for leather. Just remember. I do three colors. We will have a lighter shade, a medium shade and a dark shade so that we cover all tastes.
As for colors. We would love to incorporate more color but color is very polarizing. We sell to people anywhere from 30's to their 80's. So neutrals will rule the day. For every color someone LOVES there will be someone that HATES it.
We do plan on more solids. The Taupe color in the Forester is tone on tone. It's a very light pattern in a tan with a dark leather. We also run more leather than fabric, so the fabric is only on the winds treatments and dinette back. Sofa is solid, dinette seats are solid.
I've got a good idea. How about we post something you DO LIKE. (House, RV or fabric print) Let's get opinions on those posts and see if we can find a consensus or direction. Just remember, unlike a house we can do 9 different fabrics in a room. We're sort of limited to Main (leather) Main (fabric) & an accent.
