I have been thinking about change the 50′s/60′s parquet floors in my apartment for quiet awhile. I have considered just about everything from cork flooring to cement tiles but always come back to wood and think I have finally decided what I want. Knowing my feelings strong about honey and cherry woods (I dislike them immensely), I’ve decided to go with something weathered, pickled, grayed-out or whatever it’s called. I think they wear well, they are timeless and while they are a statement, when covered with a rug (I have 2 in my apartment that I love) the floors will just kind of disappear and play a supporting role.
