crown moulding color help please

Merry Xmas everyone!
For a gift my sons have offered to put up crown mouldings in our main living areas. We have red brown alder laminate floors, my walls are painted a taupey/tan/beigey color. My baseboards and trim is painted white.
My question is the crown mouldings can they be stained to match floors instead of painted white like baseboards? My sons seem to think the darker color will look better. My ceiling is white popcorn. Older style house.
Is the brown mouldings going to look dumb? Should they be white?
Please give me advice, I am not very creative.
Thanks in advance.

I would make them white to stay nuetral or if you're going to have them stained to match the floor, you need a qualified woodworker/refinisher to mix up the colors for you. They would make an onsite sample and then go back and mix the actual colors together.

If you want each piece of wood to the same color tones, you need to aniline dye it, which requires the workings of a professional woodworker or refinisher.
