    I would guess it is the patina of reclaimed wood plus a type of protective finish.

    True heart pine is 1220 on the Janka hardness scale, equivalent to Red Oak. That's why it was used in high-end older homes, like Mount Vernon and Monticello as well as it in historic restorations from Ernest Hemingway’s home in Key West to Camp David

    This house was built many years ago, and we can't remember exactly what was used on the walls. It is some sort of whitewash/liming on rough sawn cypress. You could show the picture to a painter, & have them do a sample board to replicate the look.

    The floors are reclaimed, antique heart pine. It has to be sourced from a specialty lumber supplier, and it is not easy to find this wide.

        Bonnie McCarthy added this to How to Clean Hardwood FloorsJun 23, 2015

        Before Cleaning: Determine Your FinishBefore scrubbing hardwood floors, figure out whether they are finished with a polyurethane, shellac, wax or varnish. Maybe they have a finish that has worn away and is no longer providing coverage. The American Hardwood Information Center suggests these tests:Run your hand over the wood. If you can feel the texture of the grain, the floor has a “penetrating” finish (usually a combination of a natural oil, such as linseed or tung oil, mixed with additives for drying) topped with wax.In an out-of-the-way spot, dab on a little paint remover. If the finish bubbles up, it is a surface finish, like polyurethane, which coats the floor in a protective layer.In an out-of-the-way area, place a few drops of water. If the water beads up and does not soak into the hardwood, the finish on the floor is intact. If the water is absorbed into the floor or leaves a dark spot, the wood is unfinished or the protective layer has worn away.If you sprinkle on a few drops of water and white spots form beneath the droplets after about 10 to 15 minutes, the floors are sealed with wax. To remove the white spots, use a piece of fine steel wool lightly dampened with wax and rub gently.If you suspect a varnish or shellac, take a coin and scratch the surface of the floor in an inconspicuous corner. If the floor has been sealed with one of the older finishing methods, it will flake off.

        Cathy Lara added this to Wood Floor Care: Polish Your SkillsApr 18, 2012

        Finished Wood FloorsMost new wood floors are surface sealed with urethane, polyurethane or polyacrylic. Most surface-sealed floors are stain- and water-damage resistant and easy to care for and clean. For tough stains: Your floor's finish will affect how you treat stains. As a general guide, if your floor has a wax finish, rub off the stain with steel wool or cotton, working from the outside of the stain inwards; for even tougher stains, you may need to use fine sandpaper and a floor cleanser. When the stain is removed, reapply the wax and polish. If you've used a floor cleanser, make sure you wash it off the wood surface before waxing. Also, if your floor has a surface finish, you will need to treat the whole affected area to maintain color consistency. Reapply the same finish that was originally on the floor to the affected boards. Make sure you don’t overlap on the adjacent boards, or the finish will be uneven. When in doubt, consult a flooring professional for assistance.Stay away from: Oil soaps and citrus oils, which can leave a dull surface residue.

        This hallway leads to the second wing of the house with the guest bedroom. The guest wing has its on back entrance, so Frederick added a built in bench for boot removal and plenty of hidden storage for coats and outdoor gear.

        Taxonomy (the study of animal classification) : Love it or leave it, vintage taxidermy appear in some of the most exclusive shelter magazine as well in the most humble of hunting lodges. Recently, artificial varieties have gained popularity and has made the appreciation of the craft more palatable.

        Natalie Myers added this to The Handsome Mud RoomMar 15, 2011

        Here's a rustic entry/mud room with grass cloth wallpaper, many wood tones — even a trophy head. It gets a refined look from quality materials, hanging pictures, plants and decorative knickknacks. This room is not an afterthought. Instead it is revered space.

        This entry hallway is functional and pretty. With the addition of a built-in bench, complete with shoe storage beneath, it does double duty as an attractive mudroom.

        This back entry of a low-country river house gets a touch of the hunt theme.
