When you’re choosing how to decorate and furnish your home, it can be tempting to pick a theme for the whole home. It’s a good idea, too, as it can really help to give your home a styled and coordinated look.
Many people choose natural wooden furniture like oak or pine to furnish their homes with. Wood has a timeless style and beauty to it, and it can be great to see the natural grain of the wood under a wax or varnish finish. It also works well with any colour schemes that you might choose.
But today painted wooden furniture has gone through a renaissance and has become very popular again, and it’s easy to see why. Often it’s in a cream or white colour, and it looks delectable, almost edible in its perfectness. A great option is to get painted furniture in a Shaker style with a natural wood top. This can look great on dining tables, sideboards, chests of drawers and bookcases. There is a huge variety of painted furniture including sideboards and buffets. These include the Provence painted furniture, the Bordeaux distressed cream range, and the Windsor painted oak range. Each has its own charm and style, and which one you choose depends on the kind of home style you already have.
You may find the idea of having just painted furniture in your home a bit too much. If so, you could always mix individual pieces in with natural wooden furniture. Any painted piece of furniture could look great in any dining room, together with a natural oak or painted oak dining table and chairs.
