Look! Colorful Flooring

Via Design Crisis

041309-floor01.jpgGiven our druthers we prefer a wood floor over carpet, linoleum or painted floors. But whether you go dark or light, wood flooring tends to come in a range of wood, i.e. brown tones, and the excitement comes from what goes on top of it, from rug to furniture. Or so we thought, until we saw these floors...

Renovated by Swedish architects Tham & Videgard Hansson, these floors in the Humlegarden Apartment, challenge that idea with a playful puzzle of undulating colour. The herringbone pattern of the floor highlights the appeal; the apartment is furnished with stark white furniture to keep the emphasis on the witty floors. We're tempted to let our inner paintbox loose on our own floors. For more information click here.
