FOURTH FLOOR WALK UP

There are many things to love about L'Wren Scott's Parisian apartment that is featured in Vogue's  May issue. The colors and the furnishings alone are enough to make me swoon but what caught my attention and started to make me think were the floors.  In some rooms they're stained a dark ebony, in others a very light, blonde.  I love extreme dark and light floors and wanted to stain ours before we moved in.  Unfortunately, we closed 3 days before my move out date in my rental and we had only a 2 day window to move in. I'm still planning to refinish some of the floors in our place, definitely the entryway and probably the kitchen.  I guess the hard part is deciding what kind of stain to use, I think the kitchen would be beautiful in a very dark ebony and the bedroom in a blonde finish. For now, I'm just left to dream as the cost and time to refinish floors is just not feasible. Another wish to add to the list. . .
