Apartment Therapy Los Angeles | Look! Colorful Flooring Via Design Crisis

Look! Colorful Flooring Via Design Crisis Given 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 .

It really IS eye catching and different....but would be a difficult task for most people. posted by baileyb on April 13th 2009 at 2:32pm view baileyb's profile Horrific. posted by LilyC on April 13th 2009 at 2:51pm view LilyC's profile Tacky. posted by PRU on April 13th 2009 at 2:58pm view PRU's profile Holy moly. posted by gagabrielle on April 13th 2009 at 2:59pm view gagabrielle's profile Post a comment Our privacy policy has recently changed.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Getting into Patterns: The Stages
Intermediate. These floors are cool and though they're not particularly easy to pull in and out, they can be covered or refinished.
Kit Pollard added this to Pattern on the Floor
I'm fascinated by this floor - the people who created this room certainly are daring! I love the pattern, but I have to admit that I'd be worried about commiting to such permanent color.
Kit Pollard added this to The Pattern Makes the Space
This space shows that there's more than one high impact way to incorporate pattern into a space. I love the floors (even if they scare me - wouldn't you get sick of those at some point?) but I also love the shelving, which reminds me of bricks.
