What color wood goes good with red mahogany? And it is also for a bathroom closet so I want a good smell. Can I use cedar and stain it red mahogany? What do you think? Also, I have notty pine in several rooms in my house. But it is older and has started to color. I want to put up new trim but keep the walls. What do you think a darker trim would look like around the lighter nooty pine? Any help would be great. Thanks, Dawn

You can stain any light wood to approximate Red Mahogany - but don't expect them to look the same. The grain will be different.

Red Cedar will give the closet a nice aroma - but not if you stain it. The aroma comes from the natural oils of the wood leaching to the surface and evaporating. If you stain the wood it will seal it - and seal the aroma in.

You might want to post your question about trim in the Decoration and Design Forum - a few notches down on the main menu of forums.
