This home was being built at the end of a country lane. The homeowners chose a very popular color on White Oak: Castle Brown Rubio.

To bring out the grain of the White Oak, we water-popped the floor before applying the finish.

At the end of the day, the results were spectacular.

The homeowners chose white cabinets and walls to accent the darker floor, which makes this home very distinctive, and the mix of brick colors blended well with the color as well.

Rubio's different colors gives many possibilities to what at first seems like a one-dimensional floor.
