The floor has a very detailed finish, which included bleaching, as well as paint pigments. Doubtful that it can be replicated (the contractor is out of business). It took months of test samples to develop the final floor finish.

The floors are not quarter sawn. But note that we spent months having samples made using bleach as well as pigments to get the finish. These floors took a lot of time to make, and they planks were hand selected by the clients to be extra long, with minimum joints.

I have only ever used one paint color: Benjamin Moore Super White. Dove is truly ugly, and if you use it, you will be unable to see any art that you hang with true colorations. Super White has the least 'undertones' of any paint on the market, and is the only paint that can be used if a client is hanging art. Otherwise, the paint on the wall will make it impossible for to see art on the walls with correct coloration. Personally - I'm fairly shocked that people actually use any other white.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Ash. A similar wood to oak that's even harder is ash. Baseball bats and garden tool handles are usually made from ash, just to give you a sense of how hard it is. The sapwood of an ash tree is cream-colored to almost white, and its heartwood is tan to dark brown. The grain pattern in each type is always apparent, though not as pronounced as it is in oak.

ASH FLOOR (WOOD)
treehouse4809 added this to treehouse4809's ideas
January 8, 2014
Ash holds stain colors well, and since light-colored ash floors made from ash sapwood are more desirable, most ash floors tend to be lightly stained. A light color and a consistent grain pattern drive the cost of this type of floor. And as is the case with all woods, it's available in a variety of grades. Ash pros: This is an extremely hard, hardwood floor Cons: Can be too light for some; tends to cost more than oak Cost: $10-$20 per square foot

This floor looks light, easy to care foor, and like a canvas for some cool furniture, rugs, and art. It's basically a blank slate and for a room, and it's nice and light, which we kind of need in our place, since it doesn't get direct sunlight.
