My husband and I are building a new home. The main flooring will be hickory....Is a light wood with some very dark mixture in the grain...

I'm wanting a color that will make the wood "pop". Any suggestions?

Thanks!!!

It's my experience that hickory tends to have more muted grayed undertones. It's hard to use brighter and clearer colors without making the wood look dull. Try using misty or cooler colors to keep the wood from looking muddy. Midtone soft greens, muted coral/oranges, periwinkles, there are probably more to choose froom than you think!

The first thing I did was contact Darius, I got back an automatic reply saying he was no longer dealing with colourlovery stuff. I was given the email address of Aaron and told to contact him, but he hasn't replied and so I came on here hoping someone would hear my call for help. The problem is still not fixed but at least I know somebody cares:) *Hugs*

Hi Luna--

This happened to me--I contacted Darius (COLOURlover) via love note and within a few days the problem was fixed. :-).
