Painted wood floor: fill in any large gouges or scrapes, and sand the entire floor lightly. you can use nearly any paint on the floor, but if you're concerned about it rubbing off with traffic, talk to the people in the paint store/department. you can also get clear acrylic sealer to paint over the floor once it's dried and once cured, it'll protect the paint job.
Ombre wall. Love the subtlety here. Very gradual movement of colors. This is beautiful and I'm not a pink person. But great idea. This would add light to my wall, movement. Without being garish and obvious. I don't want a paint chip on my wall or furniture for goodness sake.
