Before I get into this post I should say this- “To Each, Their Own.” If your taste differs from mine, I’m still cool with you. I hope you love your home, because everyone should; it is one’s sanctuary.
That being said, this is my blog, and I get to decide what is good taste and what is bad taste. As I type this out, my floors are being laid over at the new house, so it’s seems the appropriate to discuss Wood today.
This is how I like my wood floors: Light. Salvaged. A little knotty. A hint of Scandinavian. Wide planked. Aged (but not damaged.)
Natural and Full of character.

Sorry, but this just hurts my eyes.
It dominates the decor and really limits you.
It doesn’t mix well with brown or blue or orange or green. I just hate it.
Note: naturally red floors (mahogany, etc) are less terrible than maple or oak stained red.
I think they’ll look real dated in a few years.
