Decorating & Furniture/Matching the furniture


Dear Ms.Wojcik
I have a problem and need your expert opinion.
We are moving to a new large townhome and space permits us to buy a Grand Piano, something I've been wanting for a long time. I bought one and it is Mahogany, but all my dining & living room furniture is Black & Grey and Beige contemporary pieces (something I bought 5-6 years ago and probably would not buy now, but have to deal with at this point)I have an option of getting black Grand Piano, but I love Mahogany so much!
My question is: is there a way to combine it all together? I am wiling to buy more furniture, as I only have one sofa for the living room. It's kidney shape piece in black and grey colors. We are putting in new hardwood floors and as I mentioned the place is big.
Do you think it's totally out of question to have Mahogany piano?
I would appreciate any advice.
Thank you for your time.

The mahagony one will be fine.  You really are purchasing a focal point for the space, and if you are concerned about coordinating, then add a piece of mahagony somewhere else in the room.  It can be anything from a small table to a shelf, but will show "intentionality" and make you happier too.

Visit my web site at: Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.


College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
