Queen Anne Furniture in a Craftsman Home?
I just bought a kind of amazing Craftsman home. Amazing because it is truly a time warp with little to no updating since it was built in 1915. Yes, lots of work to do in some areas, but the incredible box beams, woodwork, floors, built ins, etc. give the place really solid "bones." The dark oak woodwork has the original stain--never painted. There are even the original stained birch cabinets in the kitchen which could probably be refinished.
Anyway, I'm not in the house yet (close later this month) so can't send photos. But I'm already wondering about my furniture. I love Craftsman style homes but don't really want to do the matchy-matchy thing with Craftsman furniture. Much of what I have right now are good quality oak antiques in a Queen Anne style--curved legs, paw feet, etc. I guess my general question is, is it going to look really strange in a Mission style home? Or, how can "pretty up" with a more feminine touch in my furnishings and style the heavy "masculine" look of the Mission architecture?
Hope this makes sense. Can't find any photos on the internet that help--all seem to show Craftsman homes with strictly mission furniture.
