My favorite part of our home is the attic, no doubt about that. For me this was one of the reasons to buy this house when we came back to give it a second look. This big and open space, with closets on bot sides, gave me the ability to create a place just for me. A sanctuary, a place that, off course (duhh) screams fashion. So we moved in, painted the walls all white and started to decorate. I already hated the beige parquet floor from the beginning but because we had lots of other things that needed to be done we left it as it was. But last December I suddenly had enough of that ugly floor and we decided it was time to make a change. And let me tell you, I couldn’t be more happy, now all I’m thinking is; why didn’t we do this before. But he, I don’t want to look back, my office/walk-in-closet/myspace/paradise is just perfect now and I’m enjoying every minute I spend there. Really cool to see how a new floor can change the entire space and gives it such a modern look, even all my stuff looks new. Off course it will cost some time and energie but I can assure you it is all whorth it. Because I’m worth it haha. 


(By the way; if you are interested how we did it: We applied a special type of floor coating straight on to the concrete. First a primer and later 3 layers of paint. I opted for a soft grey color, RAL 9002)
