Decorating & Furniture/Mixing Honey with Harvest oak furniture


Hi Sarthak,
I have Amish dresser and chest made of 1/4 sawn honey oak stain (reddish hue). I am planning to buy a bed and night stand in 1/4 sawn oak of Autumn Harvest stain(brown hue). Will this work? what if I bought 1 night stand in Honey oak as well? I want an interesting combination but sacred of a disaster.  

Hey Maha,

Well this could be a difficult one. There is a bit of a problem when it comes to contrasting wooden furnitures. Because I dont have image of your furniture I'll suggest you with what I can visualize.

If your dresser has a lighter shade then you may go with the brown bed and night stand, it will work but if your dresser has a dark and fresh color then contrasting would be a bit of a problem. Cause then it would seem more of a mismatch than a combination. It all depends on the freshness of the color in your dresser.

I hope I could help you out with something

Take Care

P.S: Maha if you want you can send me the pics of your furniture at, will help me understand better
