The owners of their new home in the Pacific Palisades California called Walter from Walter’s Fine Wood Flooring in Santa Monica. These owners knew precisely what they wanted to do to with their new home in the mountains of the palisades. They wanted a parquet called Marie Antoinette with a modern light walnut color that resembled a very Old European Mediterranean–Style for their living room, library, kitchen, downstairs living quarters, and four upstairs bedrooms. A simple but yet elegant antique flooring technique used by Walter's Flooring for over twenty-five years was applied and then a color was selected and approved by the husband and wife and Walter's Flooring did the rest!

After installing the hardwood floors, we let the floors set while the painters patched and primed the walls and ceilings. The final coat of paint was to be applied after the floors were finished. Subsequent to the painters patching and priming, Walter's Flooring returned and sanded, custom stained, and finished the floors. As agreed the painters returned and applied the final coat of paint. The end results was just what the owner wanted; a beautiful elegantly designed floor with a master finish!
