is this wood paneling that you've painted over with white? I just purchased a home with 1980 real wood paneled 2 story walls. It's too dark, want to paint light. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Here's a great site to purchase black and white checkered floor

They have it in small width size and large width size for small or large projects. Like kitchens & garages for the large size width and bathroom, laundry or car trailers for the small width. Only takes about a week to get.

Is the floor a rug, or is the wood painted ?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Shabby Nest added this to Panelled Walls Dress Up Your Living Space
Board and batten wainscoting gives this entry a sophisticated feel. This look is just as easily at home in a country cottage as it is in this traditional home.
A painted runner in black and white checks adds interest to this entryway.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to The Wonders of Wainscoting
Here is another illustration of the same technique. This cathedral-height foyer uses paneling combined with a checkered floor to ground the space while a formidable chandelier takes full advantage of the soaring ceilings.
