Mono­tone Wood Fin­ishes

THEN: (above left)

It wasn’t too far in the dis­tant past when log home buy­ers thought that all the wood species and stain col­ors in their home, from the walls to the floor to the ceil­ing to the cab­i­netry, had to match — ex­actly. The monochro­matic look was preva­lent, but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.

NOW: (above right)

Wood-tone diver­sity reigns, and this kitchen is an ex­quis­ite ex­am­ple of how to do it right. The floors are a rich mocha stain, which com­ple­ments medium-gold shade of the walls and the blond ceil­ing. The cab­i­netry is painted in not one but two col­ors: “Basil” and “Green Black” both by Sher­win Wil­liams, and the hutch on the left is ac­cented by a maple slab in a nat­u­ral fin­ish. To­gether, these el­e­ments cre­ate a time­less, more invit­ing space.
