Ok internet, I’m actually redecorating our beach household & I need your help on an entirely pressing aesthetic question.
Should I use oak custom furniture or cherry custom furniture? I entirely savor wooden chairs & custom sofas, so I want to be sure I keep that wooden furniture aesthetic throughout the household.
I have painted the walls all entirely neutral colors so I believe either cherry furniture or oak furniture would look excellent. I’m just having a taxing time choosing what type of wood furniture I would savor to use. My initial thought was cherry furniture because I have used oak furniture in the past. The thing is, I enjoyed the oak furniture a great deal. I believe oak furniture gives a household a true sense of “home”. I remember oak wood furniture fondly because it’s the kind of wooden tables & wooden chairs that my Grandma used to have when I was a youngster. I believe that cherry wood is much more popular these days, though. Cherry furniture—especially glossy cherry furniture—gives a household the sense of completion. My best buddy described cherry furniture as the type of furniture that says, “an adult lives here”. I don’t really know how true that is—& I actually believe that I’m a large kid at heart—but I want to make sure I’m making our beach household look its best. I care about any perspective anybody might have on the oak wood vs cherry wood topic & I would be blissful to supply pictures or any additional information to make the decision much easier. Thanks in advance for all of your help with this!
