Oak floors with dark walnut stain against simple white trim, love the wall color (painted bead board)--The paint color is Sherwin Williams Sand Beach Flat Architecture & Interior Design,Dream Houses,For the Home,Home
Love the wooden beams and like the floor for a mudroom. the brick floor (Barnes Vanze Architects New Country French Cottage) - I know I'll never live in a place like this, but I've ALWAYS loved this look.
Speaking of entryways, (or back entries, in the case above) maximize style in small spaces with stenciled or papered walls in a large pattern. This overscale wall covering (Michael Devine's Fretwork) is reminiscent of latticework.
