Dark hardwoods make rooms look dark, right? Wrong! Look at this gorgeous nursery! If you're lucky enough to be able to chose your nursery flooring, don't stop flipping through the samples as you get to the oak and cherry. Keep going darker...walnut...ebony...now we're talking!

And look at this one! Ok, we don't mean to pressure you. We're just hoping that you keep an open mind to darker woods because they can make such a stunning statement in a nursery. The combination of dark floors and light walls creates the perfect backdrop for colorful pieces, and the result can be light, cheerful, and modern.
