I recently made built in bookcases and a built in cabinet on a wall in my house, out of red oak, and finished it with Golden Oak stain. I now want to build a murphy bed flanked by more bookshelves on the adjoining wall, and I'd like to use cherry. Will it look right to have these two types of wood so close together? Does my murphy bed cabinetry and the already existing bookcases need to be built in the same style? If I can use cherry, how should I stain it so that it matches with the oak bookcases?
