The trickiest part of decorating with new wood furniture, is deciding which color scheme will match! If you pick your colors wisely, you're entire room will complement each other and turn out great. Keep reading for our guide on choosing the perfect color scheme for your furniture type.

Natural birch is a very popular wood color, and it's easy to see why! Its simple nude coloring is perfect for any room, with any theme. We especially love seeing this trendy wood finish with bright colors! With simple furniture like this, spicing it up with some bolder color choices make a huge impact. Try a bright red, blue, or orange to catch the eye of any house guests and keep things from getting boring!

Our other favorite way to see this tan-toned wood is with neutrals. The nude on nude look may not be the most exciting, but it's a great way to make themes seem more homey! Any guest will feel welcome at first glance, and you'll never have to worry about things going out of style!

Rubbed black may seem like a boring color at first, but this dark finish makes an impact like dynamite! If you're bold enough to have furniture this color, then go all the way! Make a huge statement in the room by using white decor. This white on black look will create a cool contrast in the room that makes it seem larger, and it is attractive to the eye. We love this sophisticated combination!

Another great way to implement a deep black wood piece in the room without going too far out of your comfort zone, is to pair it with mossy colors! Muted greens and blues look great against the dark finish, and create a more casual look for any room!

Classic white furniture is always a great addition to the house! This seems to be extremely popular with kid's rooms right now, so we pair it with a pastel palette. Light lavender, blue, and yellow come together against the white furniture to create an adorable scheme that everyone loves! You're little girl will be ecstatic if you choose to go with this scheme!

Another great way to utilize the white furniture? Medium-toned gray walls, or even stark white! Both these choices will look stunning with the white furniture and fit the trending style of these cool toned neutrals. This is a great option for anyone's modern room!

Last, but certainly not least, is the rich coffee stained wood that we all love. This traditional color is used with a million different schemes but our personal favorite is with deep, warm colors. The rich red and fall browns look stunning against the sultry wood. This may be an expected color choice, but you can never go wrong with it!

Another more modern look with this coffee wood? Navy blues and army greens. These add a pop of color to the chocolate brown, but still look nice in any room of the house.
