In Living Color

Adding color to our habitats can sometimes be challenging, especially when planning to use more than a couple of hues. But that didn't stop architects from the firm Tham & Videgård Hanson when designing this outrageously colorful apartment in Sweden. Given carte blanche by the owner of this 4,036 square-feet home, the designers looked to architect Josef Frank for the primary inspiration in their color scheme. It only took close to 7000 multicoloured parquet tiles (12 different colors to be exact) to create the mosaic-like floors. Of course, with this much color the best way to furnish the rooms in this enormous flat was with crisp white pieces to avoid visual chaos. I'm sure it was quite a fun challenge – with great results.
