An apartment alive with colour


If you are not a fan of colour you may need to wear sunglasses to read this post because WARNING - there is lots of it to see here!

Designed by Swedish architectural company Tham & Videgård Arkitekter, the Humlegården Apartment combines a colourful parquetry floor with bold white furniture for contrast. The furniture looks surreal in this setting.



The all white furniture allows the flooring and walls take centre stage. It is minimalist but not in the way I have seen before. It is lovely to see that parts of the parquetry flooring in the main dining space have been left uncoloured. It makes it seem as though the colour is melting from doorways and spilling out onto the floor.


What I love most however is that the company has shared its inspiration - Humlegården park with its leaves that change colour with the season. The floor plan says it all.

  2. WOW. That floor is stunning. I love it with all of the crisp white furniture. I am totally on board with bright, colorful homes and this has to be a favorite!

  3. I love the white with all the color. I'm not sure if I could handle all the color in my home, but I think it works well in this space.

  5. Wow, not for me, the pink and red room gives me a headache! There's colour and then there's colour and this is overkill for me.

  6. Yeah, I'm with Harriet on this one. I love color, but this one is a bit overwhelming and will, I not, I don't imagine, age well.
