Hey everybody, new to the forum here. I'm an avid vegetable gardener, and stumbled upon this place. I've got an interior design challenge to put out there. My wife and I live with our two dogs in a 3 bedroom home. We're in the middle of redecorating/redesigning the other two bedrooms. The larger of the two has served as an "office" until very recently. We've decided to transform it to a guestroom. We have an oak futon with a bright red bed set, as well as two coordinating red curtains for the window. I also have an oak nightstand. For the other side of the room, I'm looking to go this route: IKEA | Living room storage | Bookcases | EXPEDIT | Bookcase The red baskets that go with will coordinate well with the bed and curtains. So here are some pics to give you an idea. (this all admittedly looks like hell right now) My first big question is...what to paint the walls? Also, what wood style to get the bookcase. The oak futon and nightstand go well together...should I go for a birch veneer for the case (which is lighter than the oak nightstand), or contrast it with black? The trim and windows are white...should I go white?
