But the key to embracing it without letting your home feel like it’s past it’s prime is balancing the rich color of wood with modern influences and bold and colorful furnishings that won’t get lost against the brown. Unlike what you might have assumed, wood doesn’t have to be dark and traditional. Not only does light wood give this material a modern spin, but it’s bright and happy, too.
