Decorating & Furniture/Lighting


I plan to change the polished brass chandelier in the dining room. I have golden-oak furniture. What finish would go with it and give the room an updated look? Would oiled bronze work?

Hi Samantha, I think an oiled bronze finish would look great with the wood that you have.  A more golden tone, rather than dark will work well.  Please see attached photo as a reference.

I also offer an 'Ask the Decorator' service on my website. I would be happy to be of further assistance to you if needed.
Thank you, for your time.
