Q: Hi AT! I'm a junior college student moving into my first (!!!) apartment in September, and I've been buying furniture for a couple of weeks now, playing furniture tetris with it in the small back room of my parents' house.
My favorite piece is my orange chair; my second favorite piece is my dresser, but I hate the color (and absolutely HATED these cardboard tablets with Asian-inspired characters on them... so I peeled them off, hence the splotches you see in the picture). Those two will be the biggest pieces in my room, and I don't want either to steal the other's shine. What color should I paint the dresser (and I'm definitely changing the hardware) so that it can peacefully coexist with my chair? I love color so I'm open to anything.
