Get Yourself a Contrasting Colour
Team warm wood tones with a cooler contrast, like this dusky duck-egg colour, on the walls – it brings out the depth of the natural wood grain. When layering wood on wood keep it simple, this will have more impact than mixing in accessories in other colour finishes.
When using wood don’t worry about matching shades – mixing it up gives a relaxed feel. Aim to keep the main pieces of furniture in the same mid-tone, then accessorise with all shades from light to dark, using these as accent hues.
