Inspired by the modern-day graphic gray, white and black decor, this home has a ultra-cool Rock & Roll theme – a cocky attitude and hot pink accents mixed up with warmer earth tones and soft textile components.
As with any project, it’s always best to start off with the foundation/base. Freshen up your walls with white paint and lay a classic 3-strip oak floor Oak Siena by Kährs European Naturals Collection with white skirting and mouldings for a streamlined finish. Decorate with heartwarming earth tones that are in line with your home’s base tones. They do say “a solid foundation is the bridge to success” for a reason after all!
Once your base is set, add a personalized graphic wallpaper by Mr Perswall as well as an unexpected colour for a pop of rebellion (Rock & Roll!) that will add interest without being overwhelming or tiring over time.

This central Stockholm apartment has a beautiful golden-brown oak floor that balances out the high ceilings and white base; and lets each piece of furniture stand out individually, while unifying to a whole interior design scheme.
With such a beautiful wood floor, there is no need for much other than a clean base. For a lifetime of satisfaction, your wood floor should be able to stand out yet blend in at the same time. Once you have it, you will simply wonder how you ever could have been without it. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.
That’s the beauty of Kährs Oak Nouveau Bronze, a 1-strip floor with a brushed, bronze pigmented, matt lacquer finish.
Reminiscent of an hip hotel suite in bustling Manhattan, this opulent studio apartment creates an airy feel with its high ceilings, neutral scheme and punches of colour in details. All elements of this home add up to the highly interesting and luxurious look of an exclusive Manhattan hotel suite, while still containing the warmth and welcoming feel of a home.
To get this look, select a dark chocolate wood flooring such as Oak Lava by Kährs Harmony Collection. The dramatic 3-strip floor will effortlessly give your home that cool, timeless Manhattan style while creating a sense of comfort underfoot.
Give your home instant muted elegance with a white washed wood floor, such as Ash Skagen from Kährs Sand Collection. Ash Skagen combines the naturalness and liveliness of ash with the elegance and lightness of white matt lacquer. The white matt lacquer highlights the wood’s natural beauty, giving the whole floor a soft and pleasing finish. The floor is dramatic, yet not enough so to be distracting from the rest of the interiors.
Seen below is the home of Norwegian blogger Nina Holst, who is also the founder of home decoration community Stylizimo.com. We are loving the combination of the wood floor, monochrome art and furniture, wooden utensils and geometric wallpaper.

This villa on Al Wasl Road was designed by Dubai-based architectural firm CentimeterCube and part of a set of five contemporary mixed-use villas. The floating staircase is covered in rich Walnut Philadelphia by Kährs American Naturals Collection, which creates a visually dramatic contrast to the slate floors and floor-to-ceiling glass windows, while adding a touch of softness to the space. It’s all about finding the right balance.

In the latest issue of InsideOut magazine, you will find a feature on one of our clients’ apartments in Dubai Marina. Mr Wilfred, who lives in the apartment with his two adorable dogs Pierre and Chu Chu, selected the beautiful Ash Gotland wood floor from Kährs Nordic Naturals Collection. Ash Gotland is a light, exclusive 1-strip floor with nature’s own design showing through its dramatic knots and a lively structure. A characteristic is its bi-colour pattern. The darker core in Ash creates fantastic patterns and makes this a very special floor.
Here is a sneak peak from InsideOut magazine’s app version for tablets. Don’t forget that you can download the app for free today to read the full interview with Mr Wilfred to find out about his story and thinking behind his eccentric home.
We adore this bright and airy Hamptons-inspired Saheel Villa in Arabian Ranches, Dubai. To get this look, combine light linen and cotton textures with Oak Oyster wood flooring by Kährs Artisan Collection. Oak Oyster is a rustic 1-strip floor with handscraping and large knots that together with the white staining gives the product a very rustic yet contemporary look.

This absolutely gorgeous Mirador villa in Arabian Ranches is the ultimate representation of the romantic Shabby Chic style.
The owners of this fabulous home couldn’t have selected a more suitable floor than Oak Danaborg by Kährs Craftsman Collection to bring all the beautiful, distressed and rustic/romantic furniture and decorative items together.
What a great representation of how to stray away from the norm and make your home chic yet personal and child-friendly. We L-O-V-E this home!
