Matching wood grains

Q: I had to install hardwood flooring in my hall and connect it to an existing hardwood floor in the foyer area. I matched wood grains as close as possible. I still notice the difference, even though is very small. Is there a way to hid it?

A: In short, no. Real wood is not like laminate that has a wood picture on a hard surface and repeats over and over every so many feet. Every board and every floor are unique. That is one of the beauties of it.
