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!

We have added a captcha to the signup, and are adding it to posting of colors, palettes, patterns for new users... so at least they can't robo-spam us... Such a pain in the butt.

Wow! :D Those are really wonderful news, since most of the spammers (specially the book-online ones) are most likely command-line bots.
Thank you kindly for this great improvement and the update, sir :)
