Floor Color, oh my....

We have bamboo floor samples from every manufacturer the internet has to offer, I'm sure of it. We have them in every color they make, I'm sure of it. Scott has been on the phone day in and out with every company that sells bamboo (along with several tile guys in Indy and faucet shops and and and....). We spent some time yesterday looking at the bamboo samples next to the window, next to the 2 dark beams, next to kitchen door where you can see the cabinets through the door, next to the closet door, next to the bathroom doors. I hope it sounds as exhausting as it was. Our original plan was birch. Seems to fit the style of the house best. Then Scott woke up one morning thinking darker floors would be more elegant. I thought - hmmm, less dirt will show, more dog hair will show. Matching the 2 dark beams could be worth it though. But when we placed the samples through the house I just kept feeling the birch color. I'm not one to hem and haw but Scott really wants to think this through. He also can't sleep because he's thinking this (along with tile, showers, sinks, cabinets) through constantly. This morning he layed the birch floor down in a photo of the formal living/dining room. This is what he does at 6:30am.

Notice he also matched the mantle to the 2 beams.

Thanks for the emails about counter tops. There's also a comment button down there at the bottom of this post. Feel free.....
