Toning Down Mission Furniture
April 21, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Our guest bedroom in our new home is 12'5" x 11'6".
My husband wishes to furnish it with his (heavy - physically & visually) mission bedroom furniture collection: queen bed, lingerie chest, tall clothing chest, 2 mission nightstands, and various tiffany-style table lamps. I am more of a restoration hardware kind of person. How can I best decorate around his mission furniture to add a little "cool" to the space? And which of the above mission pieces should we select for this room - I don't want to hurt his feelings. Thanks, Mrs. Mission.

Seems like a lot of furniture for the room. A cool gray or a pale green as in this room would look good with Mission style furniture:
. I like the plain bedspread that is featured, too.

Why not ask, if he has this as his style room, that you can do what you want in the rest of the house.
And if this is already the case - then what harm will it do to indulge him with one room done to his style ?!
You can guide him throughout the entire, long drawn out design process, the chances are he'll soon get bored and just tell you to do what you like with it anyway !!! Tee hee !!
