What Hardwood Floors Do Celebrities Choose for Their Homes?

If you ever wondered about the flooring choice of the super-rich and famous, Hardwood Floors Magazine gives us the inside scoop behind Jewel and Ty Murray’s most recent home remodeling efforts. For those of you not familiar with the celebrity couple, let me remind you that Ty Monroe Murray is nine-time World Champion rodeo cowboy, and Jewel Kilcher is the famous songwriter and singer behind Who Will Save Your Soul or Foolish Games.

When the happy couple decided they want to remodel their home they turned to Pennsylvania-based HomerWood to take care of their hardwood floors. Jewel chose the Amish Hand-Scraped Smoked Oak Graphite Oil flooring, a choice that would give their Stephenville ranch a lived-in and rustic look.
