I am so happy when people really go for it. Whatever it is. This apartment in Stockholm is a prime example (and it could be said, a primary example, but I’m not going there tonight.)
In the redesign of this turn-of-the-century apartment, Swedish architects Tham & Videgård Hansson take their inspiration from the changing seasonal colors in a nearby park. They create a veritable parquet playground of hues, merging and mixing, converging and contrasting, from one room to another. The oversized parquet floor and wall panels move through electric shades of green, yellow, orange, red, and pink, to the calmer browns, grays, and black. What an extraordinary vision to dream this up.
They say the client hoped for a design that was not your “standard blond Scandinavian” interior. I’d say they hit the nail on the head.
