Q: Hi! I'm in the middle of buying furniture for my new apartment (my last place came furnished so I'm starting from scratch). Right now I have a bed/boxspring combo (no headboard) and a light blond colored set of IKEA drawers that I might move into my closet. Over the years I've really come to love the white Parsons desk, and have found a cheap knock-off at Target that I'm thinking about getting. My question is: with a white desk, should I try to make the rest of the bedroom furniture match and only get white things? I've really come to love the eclectic mix-matched furniture look, but could I pull that off with the inclusion of such a desk?
