I don't have photos:( but I will do my best to describe... ALL of my floors are terra-cotta my moldings are almost a cherry wood.. extremely warm. We adore the floors but other than that are not warm colored people. We much prefer greys and ashy colors. All of the hardware is really high end and black. I'd rather not replace every 100$ knob and hinge. we have huge ceilings and LOTTS of light. Any ideas of what color we should choose?

Two more - Alaskan Husky and Classic Gray by Ben Moore. If you are willing to paint out your mouldings to a crisp ( not creamy) white, this would probably look better than keeping the cherry, but it depends on what all is going on in your home, ie. cabinet colors, etc.

Thank you ladies I do agree those tones really mellow out the red in the floor. However, I wonder if they mat be too light with the black hardware.

No, on the contrary I think the high contrast will work best - it will show off both the hardware and the wall color.
