I love that floor.
I have a few walls in my house that has that troweled on and then polished look achieved via Venetian plaster. Original wall surface was uneven, poorly finished so no amount of painting (even with some skim coat) was going to rectify the situation.
None of the walls look as good as the floor in that pic, however
I love Venetian plaster. When I developed our skim coats it was with that look in mind. The interesting thing I found was you couldn't achieve the look unless you used slaked lime from Italy. None of the US lime trowel the same nor give this type of finish. This is a close up of the floor:
This floor was a similar application but in white skim coat with an amber dye:
Same product but on vertical application:
