Golden pine provides a distinctive focal point in any room. If you are decorating a room with golden pine furniture or floors, avoid saturated colors and select muted shades that will complement the rich tones of the wood and create a pleasing and enjoyable color scheme for your room.
White, Cream and Yellow
Crisp white walls accent the warm colors of golden pine and make the room feel bright and airy. This color scheme can work especially well for a kitchen; for other rooms, it may feel a bit too plain, although accents of other colors can be introduced through accessories such as throws, rugs and pictures. For a warmer version of the same color scheme, consider a pale cream or butter yellow paint color.
Violet and Blue
On the classic color wheel, violet is the complementary color of yellow; a pale violet or purple will allow the golden pine to stand out without overwhelming it like a brighter shade would. A pale or eggshell blue color will bring out the warm overtones of the wood and bring a stylish and elegant finish to the room, while a more vibrant blue will create a color scheme reminiscent of a sunny day.
The combination of a soothing gray with warm yellow or golden colors lends itself equally well to both modern and traditional designs, says home design website Apartment Therapy. Gray paint creates a neutral background and is restful for the eye, contrasting with and accenting the bright color of the pine wood.
