I'm buying my first house. The crown molding looks like it might be oak - medium tone, sort of warm. The ceilings look like they're tray ceilings with the molding in the inner edge. It's in most of the shared rooms - front room, main front hallway, kitchen, and dining room, as well as the master bedroom. The dining room has a double tray with wood in each one.
The problem is that the dining room (and back hallways) have a wood floor that looks like it's a deep cherry. It doesn't match the molding and it's obvious that they're that different. The room is wide open to the hallway on 2 sides so there's no hiding the difference.
My question is: Is this usual? I understand a little about choosing color schemes but I can't find anything about how to mix/match the different tones of woods. Do you want to match wood stains? Surely not all the wood has to match but I don't think this looks right.
I'm totally lost.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
