Decorating & Furniture/Wood color

Question
In my new home I am using natural maple cabinets.  The kitchen, living room and home office are all open to each other and very visable through out the house.  The office is right next to the kitchen in kind of a kitchen nook area.  Should I use natural maple there also or would a contrast be best?

Answer
Leslie,

Thanks for your question. If you want the WHOLE house to really flow, use the same natural color. Otherwise, a traditional study has dark woods, which gives you a very rich feel.

As always, feel free to email your completed project to benctt@aol.com anytime.

Thanks again.
