How to Mix Wood Tones

Gone are the days of decorating with match-matchy furnishings were ALL of the wood furniture was exactly the same and even matched the floors.

4 Tips to Mix Wood Tones in Your Home Decorating

As you can see in the picture below, the shades of wood vary from light to dark, but the thing they have in common is that they share the same rich, warm, reddish undertone.

1. Look for Common Undertones.

2. Go for High Contrast.

One dark wood focal piece in a space when all the other wood in the room is much lighter really makes an impact!

Repetition is key, but to know when to stop, follow the the 80/20 rule I talked about here.

3. Repeat your accent wood at least twice.

4. Go for varying textures.

Add lighter, more rustic wood pieces or accents in with your sleek wood floors to add interest to the space, or add sleek, modern dark furniture in with your rustic knotty pine floors.
