wood floor stain color


I am installing a utility grade oak floor for the cottage.There is a mixture or white and red oak. What type of stain should be used so red oak does not stand out as much?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I've found that using Ipswitch Pine helps to blend the two species when trying to blend the two colors.
