Does anyone know what wood was used for flooring?

May I ask what the paint color is on the side table?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Summer Color Combo: Turquoise and Lime
These shades lend themselves well to cottage-style furniture. All it takes to make the transformation is a little sandpaper, a can of paint and a DIY afternoon.
Jen Jafarzadeh L'Italien added this to Color Crush: A Pop of Turquoise
This shade of turquoise feels perfect for a beach cottage retreat. It may be tricky to find furniture in this shade, but painting a small cabinet like this is a simple DIY project.
Becky Harris added this to Bold Color: Yes You Can!
In rooms where walls are white or off-white, antiques collected from the region get fresh coats of cheerful and bright paint. See the rest of this house and learn more about cultural adventures in Newfoundland
"You'll notice chipped paint on some of the furniture," Sooley says, "but everything is pristine and clean, and all of the beds and linens are new." Using these original pieces of furniture and showing off their age help keeps the soul of the houses intact.
Amy Renea added this to Mobile Furniture: Put a Wheel on It
Older pieces often have smaller casters and were crafted out of very dark wood tones. Lighten and brighten a vintage cast-off with a bright coat of brilliant blue and give those dainty wheels a bedside post.
If I were going to put fresh flowers in only one room, it would be the bedroom, hands down. No, most of your guests won't see it, but it will make you feel special each time you climb into bed. Next time you pick up a bouquet at the market, snag a few stems to make an arrangement for your bedroom.
