LOVE this house...... - I have saved every photo of this house. We are trimming in similar stain color. I am doing hickory. But for the kitchen I want a lot of the light planks with minimal veins of the brown to pop the trim. The adjoining great room I will so rustic hickory. There will be a border of java maple to separate. I"D LOVE to know this flooring? I worked well here, and I am wondering if it isn't rustic hickory. Maybe i wil be safe with it throughout. »
with such lovely woodwork, why choose such drab color walls? - My seaside cottage has deep rosewood interior trim and doors. Because it's surrounded with sea blue, sky blue, sand and pebbles. I have stone floors. The walls came alive with song when they were painted with a light buff yellow GLOSS.
All white cottages are for the timid and fail to embrace the natural view. »
