The Nest Q&A

What do you think about mixing natural wood and painted furniture in a room?

A.

Mix it up, girl! Our general rule of decorating: Trust your taste; it’s likely all of the things you love will end up working together. The most interesting rooms are the ones that incorporate pieces from different eras and styles. Think about all those cool lounges that have lush velvet sofas mixed with Lucite tables. The wood finishes or colors in a room don’t have to match; you can unite disparate pieces with accessories like pillows, throws, lampshades or candles in the same hue.
