i love this kind of old floors in old buildings of berlin!
I would definitely be content living somewhere that had floors like these.
That's one of the reasons I love my old room in my parents' home, it had floors like that (when the house was built it wasn't supposed to be a bedroom but as the house got bigger it got transformed but we kept the floor as it was).
ah yes! there are many old buildings in berlin with this kind of floor. looks as if it's taken somewhere in a grander building in former west berlin though, in some well-to-do neighbourhood. have to check out the freunde von freunden link for that particular building now!
then you have to move to vienna, there you can find lots of hallways like this. :)
I soooo love the floor...reminds me of the old indian houses !!
