I recently read on Trendenser’s blog that a wood floor is like the shoes of a home, where – as in the world of fashion – your outfit isn’t complete without the right pair. That it doesn’t matter how nice you dress or decorate if you have the wrong pair of shoes – or wrong floor. I find the analogy to be really accurate, because without the right base, your home (our outfit for that matter!) will never really have an edited or composed look.
For example, this apartment in Stockholm, Sweden is a very simple home, with its beautiful crispy white walls, marble countertops, brass details and lots of natural light. But it is the dark wood floor that creates the warm base- a beautiful canvas that boosts the rest of the decor and interiors.
