Matching Colors between different wood species, Douglas Fir Beams/IPE

We have an exterior ceiling and soffit with IPE wood. And we are trying to color match between the IPE and Douglas Fir beams/rafter tails.

Does anyone have experience with matching colors between wood species? The IPE is finished with an oil with a UV coat. Douglas fir was smooth and not stained and the natural color ranges from a yellow-brown to reddish brown in contrast to the darker rich browns and some reddish tones of the IPE.

Thanks in advance.
