DINA FÄRGER VAR BLÅ

Sarah

We’re currently having Swedish singer Tommy Nilsson’s hit “Dina Färger Var Blå” (a classic summer song) on repeat, dreaming of the beautiful Swedish summer!

And one of the most iconic summer spots in Sweden is the beautiful island Gotland, known for its medieval architecture, rugged beaches with azure waters lapping the shoreline, sand dunes and mile upon mile of beach with panoramic views of the Baltic Sea.

And therefore, this month the colours we’re loving are the azure blue, creamy white, sandy beige and stone grey colours of Gotland.

Our Floor of the Month for July, Kährs Oak Dew, is the perfect ode to the Swedish summer and rustic nature of Gotland. It’s white oil patina enhances the distinctive texture found in the oak for a fresh, coastal look. It’s the perfect floor that will warm up a more modern scheme while it’s rustic nature will accentuate a more “country” interior. A truly versatile floor that works for any scheme.

AMALFI SUMMER

Sarah

Our new Floor of the Month Kährs Oak Alloy reminds us of a relaxed summer in the beautiful and romantic Amalfi Coast in Italy. Sun-kissed grey, beige and white tones, inspired by the dramatic Italian landscape with its sheer cliffs, rugged shoreline, pastel-coloured fishing villages, terraced vineyards and hidden bays.

The owl-grey hues in Kährs Oak Alloy create a peaceful expression, punctuated by naturally occurring colour variations in the timber. Each board is carefully brushed to bring out the character of the grain and highlight the texture of the timber.

SIGGESTA GÅRD

Sarah

This historical space is located on the island of Värmdö in the Stockholm archipelago, and was built in the year 1323. Today, the beautiful manor houses Siggesta Gård Hotell – a hotel and conference facility. Their most exclusive accommodation and conference facility is called Smedjan.

Though Smedjan was recently fully renovated, many old details have been perfectly preserved, refined and enhanced; and our vintage Kährs Oak Unico wood flooring with special wooden butterfly plugs has been installed- a natural floor that is reminiscent of the manor’s bygone days. We love!

AUTUMN LEAVES

Sarah

Temperatures are rapidly dropping here in Dubai, and we can’t help but get a little more excited about the cooler climate and all the cosy festivities happening this season. Interior design bible Elle Decoration has stated that this autumn is all about “feathers and bold patterns combined in a wide range of shades such as soil, chestnut and rust mixed with metallic shimmering copper, gold and amber with accent colours in deep red and bright blue.” And as for the floor? Kährs Domo wood flooring – an extremely rustic 2-strip board with knots, cracks and a beautiful deep golden brown colour – is a perfect match to this autumn’s colour palette.

Another great source of inspiration is Pennsylvania-native Anthropologie. They definitely know how to inspire with their beautiful images and styling, and have got us seriously excited for a more rustic, layered, countryside autumn with their new November Lookbook, set perfectly against the the backdrop of the picturesque Scottish isles of Jura and Islay. Now we’re not only excited for the cooler climate, but also for visiting beautiful Scotland! Wow, what a landscape.

LUNTMAKARGATAN 65

Sarah

This recently renovated apartment in central Stockholm, represented by estate agents Eklund Stockholm New York (ESNY), has incorporated and enhanced details of the building’s original architecture from 1882 beautifully. The space feels rustic and original – while still looking fresh and modern – and the wood floor matches the space perfectly, keeping in line with the warm feeling of the space with its rustic texture and rich colour.

Like the look? Kährs Oak Nouveau Bronze is a 1-strip wood floor with a brushed, bronze pigmented, matt lacquer finish. Contact Nordic Homeworx for more information and to view samples of this beautiful floor.

A NEW RUSTIC

Sarah

Well hello inspiration! How amazing is this Scandinavian-inspired home in Melbourne, Australia?

A beautiful demonstration of the symbiosis of raw nature materials, achieving perfect harmony within a space. Blacks, grays, whites and natural wood make this a perfect example of what can only be described as a Scandi-contemporary take on rustic.

To get this look, keep your colours to a minimum and select Casa by Kährs Grande Collection for your base. Casa is a majestic floor with 2.8 metre long planks and a rustic, handscraped surface that contains knots and cracks.

BLUE

Sarah

Blue is reliable and responsible. It seeks peace and tranquility above everything else, promoting both physical and mental relaxation. Blue reduces stress – creating a sense of calm, relaxation and order.

[ASH]

Sarah

Ash is a strong, hard wood species, even harder than Oak. This wood species is pale in a typical Scandinavian way with fine, brown streaks and few discreet knots. It has a relatively long grain and ambers over the years. Ash is used to make tools, wood flooring and furniture. Some of Kährs Ash floors have strong color variations that really bring them to life.

This cozy villa incorporates classic Scandinavian 1-strip Ash wood flooring with impressive ceiling heights, graphic Moroccan tiles, sleek &tradition stools, a large dining area and an overall rugged-yet-contemporary style to the home.

On the first floor, we find Ash Sandvig – a light, exclusive 1-strip floor. Nature’s own design with knots and a lively structure. A characteristic is its bi-colour pattern with a soft white matt lacquer, giving the otherwise rustic-looking floor a contemporary and airy feel.

On the second floor we find a very similar, yet different 1-strip Ash wood floor. Ash Gotland makes a bold statement and gives a warm and cozy feel to the more private family space upstairs with its darker core that creates fantastic patterns.

Though these two Ash wood floors are very similar and harmoniously create a common theme throughout the home, the finish is what differentiates them not only in appearances, but on the overall affect they will have on a space. Brilliant!

LIVING NEUTRALS

Sarah

Decorating in neutrals is beautiful but can also be hard to achieve. When working with neutral colors (gray, brown, white, beige), it is important to add plenty of living plants for a space to be balanced and not feel too flat. Green plants make any living room more welcoming. A green plant and a splash of green accent here and there creates a more homey feeling and adds freshness to the room.
