Q: My boyfriend and i got our first apartment, and with that we decided to buy light gray laminate flooring. We are both students and live in the Netherlands, where the houses are tiny, as is our budget, and this flooring just was the cheapest option! Now at home I am realizing that this is probably one of the hardest floor colors to match.

We have a open plan, and the laminate flooring will be in the hall, the living room/open kitchen, and bedroom. Before we decided on these floors, I was thinking of light warm oak floors and a lot of white in the interior along with blues and beiges, just the typical beach house feeling. Now I am concerned that gray and blue tones will make the house too cold, but on the other hand, I do not know which wall paint and interior colors will be a better choice. If I leave the walls white it could look quite distinguished (like in this picture I found), but I'm also worried that it could be a bit boring. And how will we get a warm, comfy atmosphere with such a color scheme? I am absolutely clueless, please help!!
