Parquet Floors

We are moving to a new home that has parquet floors. I planned on living with them for a year or so until we could afford to replace them, A friend told me that they look really good stained dark. Does anyone have any pictures of this?

I was also thinking if we stained the floors we would stain the stairs as well. Do you think I should paint the risers, spindles and trim white?

Thanks for the responses. I think we will go for it...nothing really to lose. I will definitely be hiring a professional to do it....definitely a project that is out of my league.
