Tips For DIY Faux Bois Flooring?

Good Questions

Q: I'm really admiring these hand-painted faux bois floors I spotted on Little Green Notebook. I'm in the process of building a house and would love to do this in one of the rooms, but I can't figure out what kind of flooring to put in if I'm just going to paint over it.

I wouldn't want to paint over new hardwood, and I can't see painting over linoleum or tile. Would plywood floors be comfortable to walk on in a living room or kitchen? Alternatively, is there a good source for faux bois flooring that I'm not aware of? I would LOVE to be able to buy linoleum with this pattern — problem solved.
