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!

I think that AutoDesk is only paying 2 people to deal with CL: Molly & Chris (?). Molly is only part-time as far as I know & on vacation last I saw, so that leaves Chris who is actually the one in charge of tecnical issues, not Molly. So, if Chris is on vacation, too, or isn't with us anymore, then that leaves No One to deal with the spam for the moment. If AutoDesk decides they care about the spam on this site, that'll be great! I noticed last week or so that there was someone one the Creative Market site who was dealing with spam. Perhaps we'll hear from someone soon.
