100 year old fir french door stain suggestionss

Just received my refinished fir french doors and cannot seem to figure out a stain color that would be cohesive with the refinished french doors and new pine doors, plus our oak matchstick and refinshed douglas fir floors. I realize I may need to mix colors for the pine..but just need to get a start.

I love the color range of General Finishes:

Our wall throughout the living areas will be: Straw Hat, an orange based yellow and the trim is BM Mountain Peak White. links to photos of floor and door wood tones.

The only unpainted wood left before PO painted everything shows and orangy brown (shellac) probably to dark for our decorating taste and lighting (i.e. the trees have grown a bit in last 100 years ;))

Any guidance would be appreciated.
