How to Choose Colors for Wood Flooring - HGTV Remodels - House Counselor
Laurie March, HGTV Remodels' House Counselor, offers ideas to bring together a home's multitude of woods.
As the host and creative force behind The House Counselor on HGTVRemodels.com, Laurie March guides her clients through the potential minefield that a remodeling project can become. Her approach to remodeling, which focuses on managing both the emotional and the tactical parts of a project, led the HGTV family of web sites to invite America along for the ride as she tackles challenging home renovations in Hollywood, CA.
Laurie's passion for home improvement and remodeling was unearthed while remodeling her own 1920's Spanish style home. Seeing the challenges firsthand, the entrepreneur took over and in 2005 Laurie founded Improvemental, a project management and design firm that has been a recognized fixture in the Los Angeles remodeling scene -- completing over 50 homes for a highly discerning who's who of writers, producers, and executives in LA.

Wow! It sounds like you love wood! I do too -- and I understand how quickly you can end up feeling like you're representing an entire forest worth of wood species in your home.
Obviously, you will want your wood floor in the great room to 'speak' to all the other elements. I wouldn't introduce any additional wood tones if you can help it. Do you like the Australian Cyprus enough to install it in the great room too? Would it look good with the other elements in your home? Your mixed brown-toned tile sounds like it could blend well with wood tones.
If the Australian Cyprus doesn't get you excited, try to bring home some larger wood samples from a flooring store near you and aim for something neutral that could help complement the cabinetry and your existing flooring. That means nothing with knots in it! See if there is a particular tone in the Cyprus that is pleasing to you and look for a wood in that tone.
I've always thought of built in pieces like your Cherry entertainment unit as 'furniture,' even though it's installed in the wall. In my opinion, that means it doesn't have to exactly match your floors. For a cohesive look, however, it does help to try to stay within a few species so that it doesn't feel like a wood rainbow. You know?
Let me know how it goes!
