Q: I recently bought a new dresser (Craigslist score) and new bedside table (purchased from a friend moving away) for my bedroom. I love both pieces but the problem is, they don't really match each other or my platform IKEA bed. I don't have the money to buy a new bed, so that's out.

Friends have suggested different ideas: choosing lighter colors for the bedding to distract from all the wood, or choosing a bold pattern to distract from the furniture. What do you all think? Thank you!
