A dark cherry bed establishes tonal contrast when paired with gray-green carpet in lighter shades, while window treatments with patterns in bright green enliven the palette. Warm cherry coordinates with carpet in both gray-green and blue-gray. A bed in with warm orange-cherry undertones provides complementary contrast with blue-gray carpet; throw pillows in bright peacock blue add flair. Taupe carpet has a slightly red undertone, as does carpet in warm gray. Both neutrals bring out the luminosity in beds with cherry finishes, forming color schemes within an array of toned reds. Cherry red falls on the same side of the color wheel as do warm hues such as yellows, red-yellow, yellow-orange and orange red. A carpet in a yellow-orange or tan links with a bed with orange undertones in the stain to provide a soft, neutral palette; a light fixture in antique gold adds cohesion. Mustard yellow and yellow-green carpet colors offset a bed in cool, pink undertones. A variegated carpet with dark and light browns provides contrast to burgundy cherry beds, whereas light brown carpet subtly showcases beds with lighter cherry finishes.
Charcoal, this darker neutral is one of the most versatile of the bunch. Pair is with other easy foundation tones or any shade of pastel. The most modern neutral, charcoal gray looks great in dining rooms, living rooms and even nurseries. Here's how to use it best. Charcoal gray may be a neutral, but it's also a statement. It's bolder than its lighter brethren; more modern than its neutral cousins, the beiges; and less dramatic than black. True gray (or achromatic gray) is a mixture of black and white. It has equal values of red, green and blue (RGB), and thus no hue. Off-grays — what we most often use in decorating — have very subtle but important differences in the values of red, green and blue. Cool grays are noticeably blue, green or violet. Warm grays are noticeably pinkish or brown and may have yellow tones.
Arrange your bedroom furniture to fit the available floor space, leaving a minimum 3-foot clearance for major walkways and in front of sliding glass doors. If you place your medium-toned cherry bed in front of a window, the natural light will likely accelerate the wood-darkening process. Place a comfortable armchair diagonally against a bedroom corner to provide a convenient spot for relaxing or reading. Select a striped upholstery fabric in muted greens, yellows and reds to enhance your cherry bedroom furniture hues. Beige is a neutral, often among contractors' favorites, earning it the title "builder's beige." Occasionally, it's perceived as bland -- but combined with cherry wood, the look is harmonious. Warm, sandy yellowish brown sits near warm red on the color wheel, making them analogous colors. Achieve a slightly cooler, more modern note by opting for greige -- a gray-beige mix. To bring out the brown notes in your wood, go with an icy-blue white paint. Or achieve a clean, contemporary air with pure white.
