WOODY RULES TO LIVE BY: There should be no more that 3 different wood colours in any space. Good design is darker on bottom; lighter on top. Keep that in mind when layering wood in a room (wood floors, furnishings, kitchen cupboards, trims, etc.) The colour and tone of your wood flooring should compliment the architectural style of the house you live in. For instance, if you live in an Arts/Crafts home, cherry should be your wood choice. Live in a modern boxy condo? A lighter wood like maple is a better choice. Darker wood tones help to create masculine, sophisticated or traditional interior. Lighter wood tones help to create casual or modern spaces. Wood ceilings can be very dramatic; just make sure it does not accompany wood floors or walls otherwise it will be overkill! Enjoy!
