Hardwood choice

The 11 year old home we bought has golden oak everywhere; it's on window trim,kitchen cupboards, fireplace, baseboards and stair banisters. There is carpet in the sitting area of the great room and tile in the kitchen area. I will be replacing the carpet in the sitting area with hardwood, but not sure on the best option for colour and grain.  I have found a white oak hardwood that is about a shade or two lighter than golden oak. so, I think it contrasts a little, but still blends in.  any ideas for me?  Here are a couple of pics.Thanks! ImageImageImageImage

Thanks Mrs P. I hadn't thought about painting the trim.  I think that's a great idea, and also thanks for the affirmation on the hardwood!
