When it comes to fall colors, there’s one that is almost always in our homes, on our feet, and dominating the landscape. We’re talking about a neutral that goes with almost everything, and imparts an undeniable classic flair: cognac. The color is like its namesake; woodsy and warm with a hint of masculinity.
Cognac is the perfect shade of brown for leather accessories like bags and boots. A pair of cognac boots and skinny dark-wash jeans are a match made in heaven for fall.
Want to make your home feel cozy, rugged, and also somehow luxurious? Enter the cognac leather couch. This warm color makes your home inviting, especially when used on such a statement piece in the room.
While cognac may seem to take a backseat to other fall wedding colors, don’t be fooled! This beautiful brown makes its way into wedding decor through leather and wooden accents.
