LOFT APARTMENT

Sarah

Further to our last post featuring the inspiration mood board for this home’s bright dining room, we wanted to share some more images of this beautiful and effortless loft apartment in Kungsholmen in Stockholm, Sweden.

The brightness of the space, in combination with the minimalist monochrome decor, makes for a timeless and elegant look. And we love the white-washed herringbone oak wood floors.

Select our Kährs Oak AB White wood flooring to achieve the look!

INSPIRATION: MINIMALIST DINING ROOM

Sarah

We love this minimalist dining room in Stockholm, Sweden. Everything from the custom open shelves, the white-washed herringbone patterned oak wood floors, colour scheme and brightness of the space all make for an elegant, airy and “minimalistically” beautiful family dining room.

ABOVE THE CLOUDS

Sarah

This penthouse in Emirates Crown in Dubai Marina is one of our favourite projects of all time. Designed by Marie Laurent Architecture, the home features carefully curated iconic designer furniture and art, as well as an incredible view over Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah.

The open-plan design and natural light of the space enhances the natural beauty of the massive planks of our rustic 1-strip Casa Oak wood floor by Kährs Grande Collection. Each plank is an impressive 2800 mm long and 260 mm wide, thereby giving a maximal feeling of the oak’s texture. This floor certainly lives up to the collection’s Grande name!

1920’S & HERRINGBONE FLOORS

Sarah

This apartment in Sweden perfectly demonstrates how to modernise a traditional space. Original elegant features remain from when it was build in the 1920’s, including the natural herringbone oak wood floor, wall-mouldings, iron-cast radiators, built-in wardrobes and deep windowsills. However, it is the subtle-yet-highly-effective design features such as the neutral colour scheme, natural light and brightness (courtesy of the large windows), high ceilings and modern furniture that together establish a very modern and airy feel in the classic 1920’s apartment. Essentially, there is a perfect balance between the old and new- creating a beautiful sense of harmony in the space that is very desirable and beautiful.

To achieve the look, select our Kährs Oak AB wood flooring in a classic herringbone pattern. This wood floor is made from clean-grade oak with some colour variation and small knots with a matt finish. A perfect high-quality wood floor with a traditional and elegant look that we love.

A PIED À TERRE AT THE PALM DUBAI

Sarah

In this coastal style pied-à-terre, it is proven that you don’t have to sacrifice sophistication and glamour to live small. A beautifully designed, elegant apartment that looks perfectly polished in such tiny footprint can be a challenge, but not impossible.

This home is all about giving attention to every single detail: a neutral palette of beiges and greys with blue accents has been used throughout the space.

The oak wood introduced with Kährs Oak Olof, supplied and installed by Nordic Homeworx, is the dominant material in the space, to which stainless steel touches were added- an embrace of reflective, clear and metallic surfaces, a mix of light wood and walls with luxurious textures coupled with a big framed mirror used as a piece of artwork keeps the feeling light and airy and makes the entire space seem quite large.

With bespoke tailor made storage spaces and some beautiful, meticulously chosen furniture, this small space was successfully transformed into a beautiful cozy elegant pied-à-terre.

The big challenge was to create privacy in such a limited open space. ikonic by R&S‘s solution was to create a custom-made divider headboard beautifully layered with a matching wallpaper to divide the space in two separate area: a living/entertainment area, and a sleeping area. This not only creates extra space within the property but also create a “wow” effect when visitors discover a perfectly set bedroom behind the divider.

From the balanced floor plan and multiple sources of light to the large scale rug, the ikonic by R&S team proves that good interior design can make 568 sq. ft feel like million.

The space has been realised by Rim and Sywar, founders of www.ikonic-byrs.com ([email protected], www.ikonic-byrs.com).

WALNUT MONTREAL

Sarah

You know by now that we love the combination of white walls, white doors and white skirting set against wood floor. And this renovated apartment in Gothenburg is a great example of how natural walnut flooring in particular conveys a true sense of luxury and cosiness in a home.

Kährs Walnut Montreal is a 3-strip walnut wood floor with a lot of character. The natural depth and variations in the wood grains, combined with a silky-smooth surface finish, creates a deeply layered effect that just keeps getting better over time.

Fun fact: did you know that in ancient times, people believed that back aches could be relieved by carrying a walnut in its shell in the pocket?

RELIABILITY IS KEY

Sarah

We’re always happy when we come across beautiful, simplistic homes that feature a classic 3-strip wood floor made from natural oak. And you must know by now that our favourite go-to wood floor is Kährs Oak Siena; a classic floor with strips selected to provide a calm appearance but still with certain degree of variation in the grain.

What makes this wood floor special is that it sets a perfect base for any kind of interior- from the most rustic to the most contemporary and everything in between. Though not a floor that perhaps makes an extremely bold statement, it is rather one that subtly affects the room’s atmosphere and general feel.

As for the maintenance? This floor is extremely easy to maintain. We like to say a little vacuuming goes a long way- and we mean it. With its factory-finished silk matt lacquer finish, this floor has a natural subtle lustre that will last for generations. Our silk matt lacquer complements the wood’s character by accentuating its natural structure. It also makes the floor more hardwearing and easier to clean. Despite its strength, Kährs’ lacquer coating is exceptionally thin and, unlike many other lacquers, does not conceal the structure of the wood. In addition, with Kährs silk matt lacquer there’s no artificial shine. Combined with the unique engineered structure of each plank and joints, Kährs Oak Siena is quite simply the most reliable natural wood floor you can get!

LET THE LIGHT IN

Sarah

This lovely apartment in central Stockholm is not more than a large studio apartment, but with some creative styling, these owners have been able to transform the home into an airy 1 bedroom apartment. We’ve seen an increase in inner walls/partitions made from glass with black trims that creates a divide for privacy while allowing for the space to feel open, airy and bright. The black trim not only has an aesthetically edgy feel, but also serves a safety purpose (I think we’ve all walked into an all too clear glass partition once or twice in our lives, right?). For added privacy, one idea would be to hang a curtain or blind on one side of the glass partition that can easily be drawn closed or open.

As for the colour scheme, this is an extremely important element when working with smaller spaces. Maximising natural light is key, and creating an illusion of added height and depth is something that will certainly make all the difference in enlarging a space- something which is perfectly portrayed in this apartment. The colour palette is muted, the walls and main elements are white, the “fuss” is kept minimal and all the focus is on the 1-strip wood floor (such as Kährs Oak Cornwall), which visually helps to elongate the room by directing the viewer’s eye toward the natural light source. Installing a wood floor in this manner will also enhance the look of the wood grain and maximise the natural wood feeling, as it causes the light to bounce off the floor beautifully. Et voilà, you have a larger space!

WEEKEND EYECANDY

Sarah

So the weekend is upon us and we feel it’s high time for some eye candy! This duplex apartment in Stockholm, currently being represented by estate agents Wrede, is pure perfection in our eyes. We are in love with the understated grandeur of this beautiful space. The tones are muted, ceiling 5.5 m high and the windows are large, allowing plenty of natural light in. This whole space exudes freshness, industrial modernity and pure elegance. The wood flooring is a simple, natural oak 1-strip floor with naturally occurring knots and colour variation. To view more images of this beautiful space, please click here.
