I really love your cherry wood wall! Can I ask a question about wood species going well together? - Hi, gorgeous house! It is a similar feeling to what we are trying to achieve with our remodel. I have a question for you about wood species and how to match them. We have tight grain doug fir windows and doors. Are yours doug fir, too? Well, we want to make a wall like this in our en try with closet doors surrounded in wood paneling like this, and the floor will be tiled. The next room will have this crazy flooring, recycled poplar ,which is generally mid-tone range with light poplar and dark stained poplar thrown in (they recycle the poplar from cabinet makers). Do you think any wood species goes with any other or should we stick to poplar for our paneled wall and other built-ins and interior doors? Do you contrast woods that are near each other if they are not in the same value range, or do you try to match the general tone? We don't want our house to look too busy or have too many patterns and textures, because the floor is so wild. I would so love any suggestions you might have. Thanks so much!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

An 8-foot-tall cherrywood wall divides the kitchen and the dining room, providing more storage space for the kitchen and a place to conceal an audio control system. The divider has a small opening, providing a sense of connection between the two spaces.Dining table, chairs: HD Buttercup
