Mixing Wood Furniture with White

White walls and wood furniture are a classic combination that never seem to go out of style. However, when it comes to mixing wood tones with white, getting your space to look just right can be a challenge. Here are five tips for mixing wood furniture with white.

1. Incorporate different textures. 

By incorporating woods with different textures, you can mix a variety of wood tones while still keeping the design fresh. For example, if you have smooth hardwood floors, try adding distressed wood furniture into your design. 

2. Stick to common undertones. 

Matching wood finishes can be a little heavy in a room, even with white walls. Look for wood furniture pieces that complement each other but don't match. If the undertones in your floors are warm, look for wood furniture that also has warm undertones. 

3. Contrast dark with light. 

White walls look great with just about any color wood furniture. But they look really great when the wood furniture is dark enough to create a stark contrast. Creating contrast is also a great way to mix different wood tones. If your floors are light, dark wood furniture will stand out and visa versa. 

4. Mix it up. 

Mixing wood furniture and white is restricted to white walls. Try mixing a white couch with a wood panel accent wall, or a wood coffee table with white end tables. Mixing white and wood tones is a great way to combine natural and modern decor without it looking mis-matched. 

5. Don't stress. 

When it comes to mixing wood furniture with white, you really can't go wrong. White is a blank canvas that you can really pair with anything. Just be cautious when mixing different wood tones and you should have no problem creating a room that looks as cohesive as it does beautiful.
