Let Floor Provide Warm Tone

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design and Decorating, Hardwood

When you find yourself drawn to cool tones in furniture and décor, you may want to consider starting with a warm flooring choice such as this hickory wood floor. With this option the overall medium brown tone is balanced by the dark brown graining and edging. A floor like this will support any color or tone choice you want.

With this white and black design choice, the floor provides the only color as well as the only warm tone. Its depth of color keeps the room from appearing dull.

The limited palette also showcases the room’s architectural details. The fireplace is simple and inviting. The French doors in the back virtually beg you to step onto the balcony, and the chandelier’s style says vintage.

This room appears to be in an older home, but everything in the space could have been installed in a newer home, including the chandelier. Many of today’s wood floors are designed to replicate the distressed and varied look of yesterday’s floors. Fireplaces are available in traditional styles, and room and door moldings are on the market to recreate the look of an older home. By making careful architectural choices, you can have the charm of an older home without the potential headaches.

This homeowner chose to make the most of both design approaches by combining the traditional with very modern furniture. Thanks to the clean lines and simple color choices, this room works.
