Both warm and cool neutral colors work well with oak trim. Homeowners should select colors based on the tone of the wood they want to bring out, from a light golden shade to medium or dark trim.
A very common oak trim used in homes is a honey oak, which is a light golden shade. To really make the most of this wood trim consider painting the walls a muted neutral color that contrasts the wood tone. Take the emphasis off a golden trim with cooling gray, blue and greens. When a brighter tone is desired, enhance it with whites, light grays, beige, tans and soft yellow shades.
