Mix It Up: Woods

Gone are the days of matchy-matchy wood finishes in décor. Today, you’ll find a mix of wood types and finishes creating a sophisticated look with character and personality. Think dark walnut paired with light bamboo or painted wood with wood tones in the same kitchen.

If you’re feeling a bit timid about how to go about mixing your woods, try a balance of light and dark throughout the room. To give you a few ideas of what this would look like take a look at the rooms below.

This modern farmhouse master suite boasts light and dark woods which add a nice contrast to the space.

Blonde floors offer a pretty canvas for a modern living room with mixed wood furnishings.

Dark, light and painted woods mix beautifully in this casual open floor plan space.

Mixed woods in a romantic bedroom come from the reddish wood flooring and furnishings including a dark wood headboard and bedside tables.

Perfectly balanced woods flow through an elegant great room. 

Painted wood accents offer a nice contrast with wood floors and dining table.
