Old house needs updating - big time and this is just the start!

I have gunstock color trim, interior doors throughout entire house - what color wood floor should I choose and type?
I want to replace carpeting on entryway stairs with wood, replace carpet in dining room and office with wood floor and tie it together by replacing current oak flooring in entryway too - what color wood should I be looking at?
Thanks for suggestions so I can finally do something to this old house! (Sorry for reposting, but forgot the pictures the first time!)

Are you sure there isn't wood under the carpeting? Worth a peek!

Hi
I would suggest going with a medium stain with gold tones to it so that it will blend well with your trim and wood work.

Unfortunately no wood there - already checked that out! Not even wood on the stairs - just construction grade plywood.

I'm just concerned about having all the flooring now in wood - do I want to blend with trim or go lighter or darker?
