A Puzzle Ready to Be Solved

By Christa Terry

colorful flooring

Sometimes working with color can take major cajones, especially when it’s not paint or a new couch you’re talking about. When it’s the floor that’s colorful, you can’t just slap on a coat or throw a rug over it when you get a little bored. You’re in it for the long haul. Colorful flooring can be anything from painted wood to linoleum . In this case, I am pretty sure designers Tham and Videgard Hansson used tinted hardwood to create rooms that flow into one another like seasons.

White furniture is used throughout the house, which makes a lot of sense since each individual room reflects some of the color scheme of the surrounding rooms. It’s harmonious as a whole, meaning that working with individual rooms would be difficult, if not nightmarish. Plus, white furniture lets the flooring (and walls, in case you hadn’t noticed) take center stage.

I think I’m in love!

Here’s the floorplan, in case you’re wondering how it all fits together:

    amazing. i definitely felt a pang of jealousy there. that’s just beautiful! my only dislike isn’t the floor at all, it is the overwhelmingly busy pink shelving. the floor is just fantastic.

    Awesome. just amazing…i wouldn’t have the guts to do it myself, though. i’d love to see the rug version of this floor.
