The modern or minimalist space practically begs for bright color, even with cherry wood as the key feature. Hint at country-meets-city with Kelly green walls. Striking yellow strums a sunny, fresh-air note. If your home is Asian or Mediterranean inspired, take an adventurous color journey with bold orange walls highlighting red focal walls as the backdrop for culturally correlating artwork, tile and textiles. Before committing to any paint, sample it on opposite walls for color trueness, and to see how it visually cooperates with the cherry wood. Cherry red and green are natural partners. Cool cherry beds have a pink beige undertone that creates complementary contrast with carpet in warm greens, like olive or spring green. Soft contrast ensues by pairing a bed in warm cherry with olive carpet, while carpet in cool mint green contrasts with cherry beds of either tone. But a cherry bed with carpet in robin's egg blue has a fresh look. Medium purples are too close in color, but when paired with lighter shades, such as lavender, a cherry bed contributes to a harmony of red bedroom hues.
Light wall colors -- creamy ivory, almost white, barely yellow, light caramel -- provide an ideal backdrop against medium-tone cherry bedroom furniture. As the cherry wood ages and darkens, the color contrast between the light walls and dark furniture becomes more striking. Create a focal point by painting an accent wall in sage green. The red tones of the cherry wood and the muted green feature wall visually balance each other nicely because red and green are opposites on the color wheel, making them complementary decorating hues. Layered window treatments add function, style and texture to a bedroom. Install window shades that are woven from natural grasses, wood or reeds with a hint of red to enhance your cherry furniture with an earthy texture. Hang curtains in front of the woven shades to create a layered, stylish appearance. Select white sheers to brighten medium cherry tones with a light, breezy feel or choose silky lined draperies in muted green to heighten the furniture's elegant appeal with luxurious fabric in a complementary hue.
