Concrete floors in the Netherlands. I found this in the latest issue of Sköna Hem, a dutch home with concrete floors throughout. With a white base the owners can change the decor very easily by adding different colors, and right now it's decorated in my favorite style with a natural color range with lots of wood and grey/black pieces.

To paint over ANY surface, without sanding, use a product called 'ESP Easy Surface Prep', available at hardware and paint shops. Wipe on, wipe off and paint in 90 minutes. Works well over enamel paint , without having to sand. SAVES HOURS of work. It was recommended to me by a professional painter. LOVE THIS!!
