Hi, I'm in the Tropics, in Kolkata (India). I've inherited my parents' home built in 1976 and full of polished wood furniture from the 1920's, and the 1960's in dark and medium polish. The bedroom has some beautiful pieces but the clash of polish and furniture styles is creating a lot of noise. I intend to change the floor to light ceramic vitrified tiles. I would appreciate the advice of the Houzz community on whether I should retain the dark polish in the cupboards and arm chair and match the polish of the 4 poster bed to go with it, and simply paint the other furniture. I plan to use green as the main color and maybe grey to complement it. There's a beam running across the room. I can't change the location of the AC. Should I paint the beam in contrast with the rest of the ceiling? Also, what do I do about the draperies behind the bed? I was thinking of replacing the distressed pelmet and heavy drapes with Roman blinds in a light shade of off white. I could really use some help. Very confused. Thanks a lot!
