So I'm moving into a new house, and it finally has room for me to use a vintage bed that I inherited from my grandparents. It's a lucite four-poster from the Metric Collection by Charles Hollis Jones. I've loved it my whole life - when my grandparents passed away my mother had it taken apart and saved for me. Here is what it looks like:
Michel Contessa - Charles Hollis Jones . - Rare Four Poster, Lucite Bed.
So far I'm planning to paint the walls a very light lavendar. I also have one side table I'm sure I want to use, it's a chinoiserie chest that's gold with flowers. I also have two 50's style chairs to arrange as a sitting area that are upholstered in off white and are old hollywood looking.
All the rest of the decorating is open at this point (price is a concern).
The main thing I'm not sure about is the dresser. I know that I want to put a dresser against the wall facing the foot of the bed for clothes storage and to put a TV on top. Right now my dresser is sort of a french country, hand painted flower thing that won't work at all. I was thinking of getting a very modern looking white console, like a big white rectangle, but I'm concerned that it might look too 80's with the bed. I love the look of modern mixed with old, I'm just having a bit of trouble with it.
