My latest stress, (besides moving, of course) has been what to choose for the wood flooring. And then I saw this picture with these gorgeous wood floors and my worries went away. I think this is a Walnut finish, and I'm not sure about what type of wood it is, but I love it and I'm sure a flooring expert can match it. Right?!

One concern you think this stain is a little too dark and will show dust, dirt, etc.? Or do you think it's just light enough that it shouldn't show too much...


  1. Hi- I'm a friend of Keri Cannon's and I came across your cute blog. I just wanted to give you a heads up about dark wood floors. I did a floor similar to this in my home. It was a pre-finished birch wood with a dark walnut stain. I LOVED how it looked but it seriously showed EVERYTHING. It's not too bad in the summer, but in the winter it was a nightmare. Every little spec of dirt/mud/salt/dust shows up. That being said, it does look really pretty when it's clean so i'd still choose it again.

    Good luck with all your cute ideas!!


  2. Katie! Thank you so much for your comment - I was really wondering about how they show dirt/dust, etc. Now that I know I probably will go a shade or two lighter because I'm not the biggest fan of cleaning:)

    Thank you again for your comment - and keep checking the blog because I love the help!
