What color flooring would you put in this cabin?

We are in contract on a purchase in lake tahoe and are having trouble deciding on new flooring colors. Our goal is to go with an modern cabin feel. We plan to paint the walls agreeable gray, have white trim and ceilings, and modern dark bronze fans, doorknobs, hardware etc. We will also change the banister to the modern horizontal tension wire black metal finish banister. We plan to keep the yellowish pine wood trim in the photo below forever, and plan to keep the greyish stone/fireplace forever, but plan to change out the kitchen in 3-5 years, so the kitchen cabinet color is a non issue. The pine wood on the wall is where we are being thrown off.

We went to home depot and did some research on agreeable gray and determined a darker floor color would work best with the pine, see our top four wood colors. We also think matching our floors to that top large beam would work great (like a dark walnut?) Does anyone have any feedback on what would look best to bring the room together? Or could anyone do a quick rough photoshop with different floor colors? I used houzz a lot on my first home remodel and everyone was so helpful, so thank you in advance!
