mdwlaw - don't feel that way, your question is totally fine. I don't think there's anything wrong with a designer sharing a paint color or chair source! Sarah Richardson has great (and free) design shows on tv all the time. As do many other designers. If I were a designer, I'd be proud and pleased that someone liked my design well enough to ask these questions!

I am going to guess that it is vintage. My favorite place to shop for vintage stuff when I don't have time to run all over the place is www.1stdibs.com. They have everyone in one place! Good Luck!

I love the look of white floors. Didn't think they would work but they work beautifully. It looks like there is a shine on this white floor. Was pearl paint used and which whites would you recommend?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Niche Interiors added this to Crisp, Clean, Dependable White
White floors and walls draw attention to the unique, brightly colored chairs.
Becky Harris added this to Upon Reflection: Mirrored Furniture
There isn't a a single piece in this room I would not want reflected! The lattice work over the mirror on the piece breaks things up a bit.
Becky Harris added this to Where and How to Toss the Throw Pillows
Look closely at this room - you could change out the entire color scheme and feel through just the throw pillows, art, and accessories (well, and you'll have to work with those fab chairs).
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Color Ideas for Commitment-Phobes
Even though all you might see are these fabulous orange-pink chairs, this is really an all-white room.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Are You Gutsy Enough to Paint Your Floor White?
I have a thing for pink, and here the pink just jumps off the page. The chairs take on a sculptural quality, and the lines between the sleek white floorboards are so slight the floor looks almost like painted concrete. If you want color to stand out, an all-white room is a great way to start.
Becky Harris added this to Bold Color: Yes You Can!
3. Speaking of reluctantly dipping your toes into color, Tara Seawright had to bring her clients around to color one tone at a time. She kept a blank white slate in the background and added color with replaceable pieces like these pillows, chairs and artwork.
Tara's husband Sam is an artist, and the painting in this room is one of his. "As an interior designer, I have a natural attraction to pairs of things," she says. Sam "encourages me to juxtapose colors and pieces and to break free from some of my natural inclinations." And though she's a fan of resources like 1stdibs , Tara says there's nothing like learning from furniture dealers. "They are such a wonderful resource, especially in New York... Being around a piece of furniture and learning from these experts can never be replaced by looking at a two-dimensional drawing." Having so many of these great resources around her can be dangerous, though. "I fall in love with objects and make everything work around them," she says. "Right now I have five storage spaces!"
Samantha Schoech added this to Alluring All-White Rooms
Hollywood regency meets ethnic design. White rooms aren't just blank slates; they can have very intentional styles too.
Sheila Schmitz added this to How to Paint Your Hardwood Floors
10. Wait to walk. If you apply topcoats, you will have five to six layers of coatings on your floor. It’s a good idea to wait another day or so to walk on it, and then only in socks. The longer the floor is allowed to cure, the harder the finish will be — just like your nails!More: Are You Gutsy Enough to Paint Your Floor White?Houzz guides to flooring
Accent with your favorite color. You've taken a bold leap into all-white decor, painting the walls, floor and furniture white. But don't stop there. Add a few splashes of your favorite color around the room, and watch your space come alive. Try to spread out your accents: The more spots of color you use, the more the eye will wander around the room.
