To expand any-sized space, brighten a room and project a cleaner feel, go for light-toned flooring. Lighter floors contrast well with warmer, darker walls and furniture. So, go for that unapologetic statement piece (in navy perhaps?) without losing that open feel. In a bathroom, a reclaimed, light maple wood vanity adds earthy warmth to crisp, white countertops and walls. In a bedroom, light brown pieces against neutral walls create a peaceful, purposeful sanctuary. Yep, blonds are more fun. Just steer clear of those funky, orange-hued ’90s finishes. We need another decade before they’re considered vintage.
