Wood is certainly a favorite material used in homes, whether the home be traditional, modern, new or old. More and more frequently, it's used to set the neutral tones of a room. Warm-toned, rough or smooth and always giving that hint of nature, wood elements can make or break a space. But how much is too much?

We snapped this photograph while sneaking a peak in a home for sale in Austin. Built in 1894, this home features rooms with wood floors, wood walls, wood moldings and wood ceilings. Certainly acceptable in a rustic cabin setting, does this much wood work in the average home? If it's not inherent to the history of the home, what do you think about adding it in? Let us know!
