By using a differant darker wood your not going to have to fight trying to stain two differant colors right next to each other.

The best way to get a good looking boarder or inset is to use different species of wood. Example: walnut with a maple boarder or for a less drastic look try cherry with walnut. Do not mix species from different countries. These wood are grown in different climents and react differently to moisture. They will expand and contract at different rates causing problems.
