Mixing Wood Tones at Home
How can I incorporate different wood tones in the same room?
If the colour and grain of the wood pieces aren't complementary, chances are they won't make a good fit
When mixing woods, both the colour and the grain of the wood need to be taken into consideration.
When I mix woods, I look for species with an element that ties into the next.
For example, if you’re using a vibrant zebrawood, try pulling out the caramel tone and finding a similar colour in a species with a subtle grain.
Another approach is to look at the various wood tones together; if they’re harmonious, go for it!
Ashy-toned woods don’t mix well with warm gold or red, but an espresso with the same underlying hue will be an attractive complement.
