Good Question: Furniture for Big, Empty Bedroom?

Please, please, faithful AT readers, help with our master bedroom! As you can see, we're so lucky that it's HUGE, but we need some furniture to fill it with. My dad made us this bed from an old maple tree at our cottage, so it has to stay. Here are the issues: (1) We don't want all light wood furniture in the room, but we're not sure about mixing up too many woods/finishes; (2) While we love the bed my dad made us, we prefer a mix of vintage and new for an eclectic look (see brown Barcelona chair in corner; walls are Ralph Lauren's Shoreline Blue); (3) We need 2 dressers and 2 night stands, minimum; (4) The black armoire will likely get moved to another room...

So the questions are:


  • What colour / finish for the nightstands and dressers?

  • Any thoughts on particular styles of nightstands and dressers?


And yes, those dreadful lights are going away and the bed will once again be centred on the wall! Thanks for any ideas, Keegan (Ottawa, Canada)
