Here are a few this furniture that doesn’t match the floor. I think they look great. Maybe an area rug to seperate the shades of wood?

I’m with your Darling Husband .. ONLY because I’m super weird an anal about wood finishes matching. I didn’t want to do any color other than espresso for a crib because we already have a dark dresser. I’m sure it can look nice, and I like the photos posted above but I can’t wrap my head around designing something that way myself. I am totally weird though.

I have lighter floors throughout my house and I love dark furniture. I personally wouldn’t match the furniture to the floor.

we have a whitish-grey carpet in the bedrooms, and I’m doing the cowgirl accessories via etsy, so i’ll probably either get a white crib, or a deep dark wood. i don’t like the middle colors, like oak, etc. i like mahogony, a deep cherry or white.

I don’t think it’ll be bad, just separate the crib by putting it on it’s own rug, so it doesn’t seem so obvious if it bugs him that much.

Mixing and matching wood colors is SOO in style right now!!

Example – a white crib with an espresso armoir…. Or esspresso finish with rustic wood.  You have to have a constant in there which could be a quilt, a curtain, the sheet, and accessories all being in the same color family.  You could always put a big rug down so the color of the crib will sit on the rug rather than the floor, but I personally feel that matching funiture and floors is overkill.

The floor in babies room is are original and lighter oak, we talked about refinishing them when it was our room but never bothered. Our window and door frames are dark mahogny (same with the rest of the house). The walk in closet is all white wood. We want an espresso crib, dresser (etc) because it looks richer to us. We will probably put down a rug under the crib. 

I really fear trying to find a wood color that’s close and having it be off. That would bother me more than the 3 (or 4 now!) different shades of wood.
