I like the comment in #5, "Choose pieces with a contrasting finish – for example, painted drawers
with a wooden bed frame, or timber with metal (as here) – to avoid the
look of a showroom set."

I have a strong dislike of matchy matchy! And suites of furniture! Individual, evolving, eclectic - these are words that evoke warmth, home, welcome!

Oh yes, Nancy and that No:5 with the wood/metal combo is super isn't it? Some great ideas here, Laura. A useful post.
