Gary + Gayle: Cincinnati, Ohio

Dark furniture creates a modern contrast to the rest of the guest room, while period styles are in keeping with a country atmosphere. The overall effect is comfortable and familiar, for those who are far away from home.

The decor of the room is a perfect mix of high and low. The iron bed, from Restoration Hardware, is offset by a thrift-store Windsor chair in the corner. The couple painted and sanded the chair to give it a worn look, echoed in the bench, a craft store find.
