Common sense might tell you that choosing matching furniture is the best way to create a gorgeous room. And while there’s nothing wrong with this tried-and-true approach, blending wood tones is a great way to take your space to the next level.
Set the Tone
Wood finishes have either a warm undertone (like red or orange) or a cool undertone (like gray). Create a cohesive look by choosing dark and light pieces from the same family of undertones.

In spite of their distinct finishes, these pieces are united by the cool gray undertones they have in common.
