The era of matching wood décor in rooms has (hopefully) passed. Mixing multiple wood hues in décor now gives variation in color, texture, and pattern, making a space more aesthetically appealing. But what is the trick to blending different wood tones without making a space look haphazard?

While there are no hard and fast rules, there are a few things to bear in mind if you want to produce a particular appearance or mood. What is the most important thing to understand? Because natural wood hues are neutral, they may be easily incorporated into any color scheme. From opposing tones to patterned grains, here are some expert suggestions for mixing and blending wood colors.

All of the wood furnishings in this open concept compact home complement the reclaimed wood feature wall. The walnut dining table, a gorgeous hardwood known for its robustness, complements the chocolate brown tones of the walls. The mismatched beech dining chairs add a splash of color. The honey-toned wood complements not just the caramel tones of the walls but also the oak floor.

Combine Live Edge and Modern Wood Pieces

This small kitchen has four different wood tones. The natural curve of the live edge wood countertop catches the eye. The rustic, carved wood bar stools in walnut add a bohemian touch. The handcrafted wood cabinets add a splash of golden yellow color. Warm walnut boards finish off the floors.

Use Contrasting Colors and Textures

Instead of matching wood pieces, consider contrast, especially in textures and finishes. All of the wood tones work well together, from furniture to decorative accessories. The smooth wood serving bowls stand out against the rough dining table. The rosewood mid century console complements the golden oak floors.

This living area has an edge thanks to the black walls and various wood tones. The room is furnished with classic mid century furniture. On the left is a rosewood-framed old sofa. Dark teak makes up the slatted coffee table. A tree stump end table sits next to the black leather lounger. The wood mantel contrasts with the dark background while emphasizing the cow skull.

Combine Wood Tone Warm and Cool

Do not be afraid to mix cold and warm wood tones in a space. The pale wood floor in this guest room contrasts with the dark, warm wood walls. The bedding in soothing cold blue colors and the rug in a stimulating and warm shade of red assist in balancing the room’s opposing color palette.
