#Blackwalnut is an important tree commercially, as the #wood is a deep #brown#color and easily worked. The fruits, #walnuts , are cultivated for their distinctive and desirable taste. Often, #trees are grown for both lumber and walnuts simultaneously and many cultivars have been #developed for improved #quality nuts or wood. Black walnut is currently under pressure from the thousand cankers disease that is causing decline of walnuts in some areas. Black walnut is also allelopathic, which means that it releases chemicals from roots and other tissues that harm other organisms and give the tree a competitive advantage; this is often undesirable as it can harm garden plants and grasses.
@maderasurfaces color inspiration: #orange . Orange, the blend of red and yellow, is a mixture of the energy associated with red and the happiness associated with yellow. Orange is associated with meanings of joy, warmth, heat, sunshine, enthusiasm, creativity, success, encouragement, change, determination, health, stimulation, happiness, fun, enjoyment, balance, sexuality, freedom, expression, and fascination.
@bridgehousela interior. That’s a 120 Ft long hallway lined with skylights and large sliding windows. Amazing innovative framing system to boot. Nice work @dbarchitecture and thanks for the tour. Can’t wait to see the #Stratus floor in there.
We gave a little bit of love to this Walnut/walnutburl Monticello pattern floor. Little coat of oil and and "Voilà!" The floor as been finished with duraseal coffee brown stain and oiled a couple of years ago. Now , it's like new again. #monticellofloors#oiledfloors#walnutfloors
Getting #pantryenvy seeing this pic of our rift & quartersawn solid Walnut flooring! This was installed in a home built by @ejjaxtimerbuilderinc and designed by @patrickahearnarchitect with millwork design by @rachelalmeidadesign. The floor was finished with #bonatraffic .
What makes our floors second to none? Well we're glad you asked! Our Heritage Cut Criollo Walnut is milled the old school way using giant sawmills. The tree is cut bark to bark vertically so you literally are spreading the entire tree across your floor! Your floor is truly unique and truly one of a kind.
Thank you all for joining us last night! We are looking forward to next months #happyhour when we'll reveal another new #color ! This is Indigo! Wide plank northeastern ash dyed with real Indigo pigment and finished with a super matte water based polyurethane. The color is intense, rich and dynamic like the dark blue of a midsummer night sky. Come by to have a look or request a #sample @vanderbiltrepublic you killed it on this one! 🔥🔥🔥💙

Technical Thursday | Textures
Our floors are often enhanced w/physical distressing and texturing which is achieved through a combination of mechanical processes (wire brushing and band sawing) as well as hand distressing (edge scraping, hand planning). What's your favorite?
get cortney's down low on @farrowandball downpipe over at @archdigest 👊🏼👊🏼 "The value of this color is super rich and bold—more so than any other gray I’ve used. It has a great foundational quality to it. I like to pair it with black, creamy whites, metals, and rich woods like walnut. It works just as well with neutrals as it does with jewel tones.” read the scoop on the best gray paint colors and ideas over at @archdigest // link in profile //
