Need advice for color in our new home

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 ads are ugly, frequently offensive, pointless, and make the site basically unusable. And no, using a different browser doesn't help at all. One of the 800 better color palette apps out there needs to add pattern functionality so CL isn't holding us hostage.

I had a brief moment of hope when I got the "redesign" notification. Note to the management: a new font does not improve a crappy site design. HTH.
