Instructions

  1. 1

    Paint the walls. Choose a light neutral hue, such as fresh white or creamy ecru, to contrast the rich, dark floors. Pick a nature-inspired shade or rust orange or sage green to play off the floor's earthy appearance as another option.

  2. 2

    Decorate with coordinating furniture. Buy a matching cream or white couch and love seat with dark wood arm and leg accents to create an opulent look. Pick a coffee table and television stand made of similar dark wood, such as redwood or mahogany, to avoid a mishmash of wood colours.

  3. 3

    Accent the living room with textiles. Choose animal print items to enhance the cherry hardwood floor's exotic look. Place zebra- or leopard-printed throw pillows in both couch corners. Drape a matching blanket over the back of the couch or pick black and white toile-patterned pillows and a coordinating blanket instead to create a classic, elegant style.

  4. 4

    Add warmth to the hardwood floors with a plush rug. Place a large rug in the centre of the living room, under the coffee table, as a focal point. Choose a plain white or black floor covering, if you have animal-printed decor pieces. Pick a burnt orange or gold-hued rug to add a pop of colour to a black-and-white or earth-toned space.
