two-tone

Lonny
Back in the day, I wouldn't go for any mismatched furniture in a room. Now, I adore mixed finishes! So much more style and character. But I don't know if I've really embraced the idea of two finishes on the same piece. It's a little mod/retro for my taste... but I think I'm warming up to it. Especially dark stain and white together. Looks good.

Beautiful spaces showing two toned color! I also like to mix up my wood finishes. I think I'm also going to start mixing up finishes with my frames on my gallery wall!

I was the same way, matchy matchy everything! I am now playing with mixing it up myself!

I'm a big fan also. I think it adds interest!

I love mixing it up. . . still not sure if I can pull off the two tone piece in my own home . . but love to look at them.

ahhh thanks! I was a little worried when doing my piece because I remember you saying you weren't a fan of the white and wood together. :) I know it's not for everyone but I for one LOVE two-tone furniture. It makes my heart happy every time I see it.

I agree, the more mixed up the better! Beautiful!

I haven't been too sure about them either until recently -- images like the one you posted make me more open-minded!
