Woodwork is a dream detail, but it can be a doozy to work around. With undertones ranging from yellow to red to gray, matching it is no one-size-fits-all task. Consider our Color Search tool, sponsored by Sherwin-Williams, your crystal ball: Will lavender paint look good with my dark wood trim? Is red right for oak crown molding? Let Color Search inspire you!

Color Search also offers instant inspiration, with a treasure trove of real-life images. You can use it to figure out what accent colors work together best, from rugs to wall art, and scout which colors will complement existing elements in your home, from your marble fireplace to that yellow statement rug.

When searching for rooms with wood trim, simply select the brown or tan that most closely matches your trim. You can click a color bar to adjust the hue and saturation until it matches.
