A decorator? Why? I can ConTrad-ify your house for you in a snap. All I ask in return is a taste of class--perhaps a minute or two in your oak-paneled study with a glass of scotch at arm's length.

I think you mean mahogany, but you'd know that, because your an expert in all things related to architecture.

No, it would just be more typical for it to be

OK, in that case.

Mahogany would just be more common for a house built by the wealthy in the 18th century, his house looked really old. Thomas Chippendale, the london cabinet maker, used Mahogany specifically.

Stained oak was more common to the arts and crafts movement in America, often stained or at least finished in a dark shellac.

Soap finished white oak floors and likely wall panels are more common to the Scandinavian countries from the mid-century on.
