Type of wood on the floor - The steps on the staircase are stained dark oak . I noticed the floor is a different stain. Is it oak or another wood species ?

The floor and stair treads all all oak. The client loved the golden oak floors and they were in great shape so they elected to keep them as-is. We stained the stairs in a custom color to coordinate with some of the black accessories and other design elements in the space.

Sherwin Williams Earthen Jug - SW 7703 - keep in mind that colors look different on-screen. I always recommend sampling it on your walls in your own space / lighting.

I'm not sure what you are asking about. Can you be more specific? The stairs shown are the original oak treads. We sanded them down and applied a custom Wenge color stain. The rails, balusters and newels are all custom, solid walnut.

I think putting a light on top of that art in the stairway can make a difference!

Thanks for the idea but it's a mirror and I don't think it would be appropriate in this case.

Thanks for your inquiry! The steps are oak, the newel and balusters are all walnut. The stain colors were completely custom. We tinted them by hand to produce the final colors as we needed enough of the amber tones to bleed through so that multiple woods used in the project would work nicely together. I rarely if ever use stain out of a can. There's more to it than that. Thanks!!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

For example, when Americans travel to the U.K. or Australia, they might be confused about what floor they’re on. There the first floor is located on what Americans would call the second. And what we call the first floor, they call the ground floor.So, if you’re ever in, say, London or Sydney, you actually have to ascend a flight of stairs to reach the first floor.
