Default Utile Which Species Would Compliment It

Hi,
I'm in the UK and am making replacement external house doors, out of quarter sawn Utile. The door design will feature floating raised panels.
I'd like to know the species of timber which would be suitable to fit in an external door and would go nicely with the Utile?
Thanks.
Peter.

Peter... are you looking for a contrasting wood for the panels?

Contrasting or complimentary, whatever has a nice effect.

That looks like the ipe that they use for sundecks here. Does it have wicked little splinters? makes a beautiful darkcolor when stained with a red mahogany stain.
like these pistures. I posted before.
