Effortlessly chic, relaxed sophistication, calm and easy elegance – How can you capture all of these characteristics in your interior? The answer: light hardwood flooring
A lot of people shy away from light floors thinking that if the walls are on the light side, the floors must be darker. The truth is that light walls paired with light wood floors can make a space more expansive and bright. It creates a clean palette with a multitude of possibilities – You can keep furniture and decor monochromatic, or for contrast incorporate darker tones or colorful accents.
Think Scandinavian design, relaxed contemporary spaces, and breezy coastal interiors – Check out some of my favorite examples below!
Light hardwood floors are a “go to” for many retail spaces, such as J Crew and Club Monaco. It provides a simple and fresh foundation that lets merchandise take center stage. The grain in lighter wood tends to be more visible, which can really enhance the depth of natural materials and warmth in an interior. I love using a herringbone or chevron floor pattern in a light wood plank. It is a beautiful custom detail and a refined way to integrate a timeless pattern.
