I can’t tell you how many people have asked me lately what colour flooring they should have.
They know they want a hard, wood-like surface of some sort, but should they go with a traditional warm timber style, a slick dark cherry option or a light and breezy white?
The answer: they’ll all look great!
Personally, I’ve been craving deep chocolately wide boards for years now, and I’m getting closer to that outcome…. I just need the new home to install them in. I love the contrast they create with a soft mushroomy white wall and crisp white Art Deco detailing in the form of skirting boards and picture rails. Furniture looks great on the dark wood and the choice of rug is limitless with such a beautiful backdrop.
That said, it’s hard to go past the true Aussie beauty of a warm wood paneled floor.
