How do I stain my floorboards this colour?

Any ideas how to get this look with sanded pine floorboards? I have previously used white oil on floorboards but wanted something which is easier to keep clean looking.

You could try liming wax, it worked well on my pine table. Hate orangey pine.

White oil eg snow by osmo
Sealed with 2 coats of osmo polyx

When we did our floorboards before they had three coats of white osmo oil. One coat just gave them a bleached/whitewashed look (a bit like beech) which I wasn't too keen on, I prefer the greyish tone you get with lime.

Wondering whether to just cover the boards with proper solid oak instead?
