Here is another project by the talented interior design firm Geremia Design. This one is amaaaaazing with some serious mid-century classics (Eames lounge, Saarinen womb chair, Bertoia diamond chair, Kofod-Larsen chair etc.) and OMG my yellow/orange stained floors! I guess when you have some seriously nice furniture and lighting all over it distracts you from the not-so-cool bits. That adorable kid is distracting too. 🙂 (Photos: Melissa Kaseman)
Wrote it once and now again – your yellow/orange stained floors are NOT UGLYl! These kind of colour you can find in many old apartments here in europe and it gives a room a warm welcome glow.
I think, it is more the combination with the other woodwork in your home that is not really good working.
The floors are not stained. They are oak. That is generally what urethane/varathane coated oak looks as it ages. I have these throughout my house, too–with fir (oh joy, red, in the bedrooms). Don't love them, and would prefer a more med brown colour. Someday maybe I'll refinish and stain, but for now I have two young kids and a dog – so I let them be.
Over many years and several houses with similar flooring, I find whites, grays and cool colours seem to look best with floors of this tone. (Obviously very subjective )
There are SO many other shades that look a lot better than orange IMHO. And when laid in a herringbone pattern, I could over look the gross colour. 🙂 (but mine are super narrow and cheap looking)
I have the exact floors. not in as nice condition and like kim, I've rued their orangey hue and regretted not bleaching or staining them ashier/darker ever since i moved in seven years ago. that said, the pics in this post are stunning, floors and all, and like another poster commented, they are the classic original to this look. my house is a sears kit from 1926. i suppose if i contextualize it differently, i can like them a little more. beautiful house and kids in that post.
I LOVE those floors 🙂
I think they offset the pallet of black and gray (my fav) very well. Other than the Womb chair, which I found to be one of the most uncomfortable ever, I could live here.
