Mix it up!

We have collected 5 helpful tips from interior experts on how to mix your white furniture with wood in your home

1. Start with An Anchor Piece
An easy way to create impact is by using a larger piece of wood furniture, such as a coffee table or buffet as your starting point and mixing in two to three contrasting wood tones around it. You can always experiment by switching out wood accessories to see what appeals to you (Ref: 1).

2. Pick a Dominant Wood Tone
Nothing says you have to go crazy mixing wood tones, especially if you’re feeling a bit out of your element. A neutral, graywash stain of the wall (see photo) adds just enough contrast while letting the dramatic, dark painted wood pieces and accessories in the room really anchor the space (Ref: 1).

3. Soften the Mix with a Rug
When you’ve got a lot of legs in various wood tones, give them common ground with an area rug. A rug also helps to create a soothing transition between the furniture and wood floor (Ref: 1).

4. 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! Imagine if the table was the same shade as the floor and the chairs? They would blend together and look bland, don't you think? (Ref: 2).

5. 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 (Ref: 3.)

  1. Hi there! we’re having a house renovation this year and our concept is farmhouse style. white walls, hardwood floors and natural wood dining table the ones from Pottery Barn.
    I can’t decide what colors to use for buffet table, console table and sofa table. I’m choosing between white, gray or charcoal colors (chalk paints) .
    Does it have to be one color for these buffet, sofa and console tables? thank you and hope to hear from you soon. ?
