Staining pine stairs

In our new construction we will have natural oak flooring and stairway landing (a little bit rustic - seconds which we love). Walls there will be SW Indian White with trim SW Peristyle Brass (warm neutrals).

Now what to stain the all pine stairs? Our builder uses Minwax. Is it likely that we will be able to match the stain on the pine to the natural oak? I'm thinking if we try to match and don't get it right, it will look like we tried but didn't get it right. I'm wondering if we should go a little darker or what? Any recommendations or PIX would be appreciated?
