I'm sorry, I don't know what kind of wood was used, but it is the original flooring from when the house was built 100 + years ago. Previous owners had painted them leaving them an orange tone. The current owner decided to paint them white throughout the house rather than replace them.

They were Gretchen's mothers. I'm not sure where they are from originally.

probably just me :) I think you should go with some color on the wall even if it is just an off white with undertones of some other color. Your beautiful cove moulding doesn't even show up.

Color floor, type paint, and finish coat - What color is the floor paint, and what type paint is it. We're the floors stained and poly coated before painting? Spiffy so did you sand and prime them?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The hardwood floors in the living room are original. The previous homeowners had painted them, and they had since been stripped, but the result was not what the Johnsons wanted. "They were beautiful hardwoods, but the color had turned an orange-yellow. I didn't like that, so I decided I was going to paint the floors," Gretchen says. She continued the white hardwood throughout the entire downstairs. Statue: Versailles Gardens

These are painted hardwood floors! She painted them after a disasterous re-finish turned them orangey. It really makes the house seem airy- this in Portland. I also like the antique garden statuary in the living room links outdoor/indoor.
