Cherry wood has a red undertone, which is a warm hue. The best accent colours to go with cherry would be earth tones. Earth tones include warm colours such as browns, tans, olive green and golds. The important factor is that the colours stay in a warm palette because cherry is a warm-coloured wood.
Stay Away from Reds
Because of the amount of red already in the cherry wood, the colour that would clash the most is red. This would compete with the tones in the wood instead of complementing it. Along with red, the other colours to stay away from are pinks, purples, and deep oranges.
When painting to accent wood, the main thing to remember is to paint in a colour that will bring out the natural colours of the wood. Earth tone colours will complement the tones in the cherry wood and give an accent to the natural hues.
