We love seeing our Kährs Oak Tide wood flooring inside the beautiful House Of Bazaar by Harper’s Bazaar Arabia! 🌸
Set under the Mall of the Emirates’ spectacular glass atrium in the Central Galleria, the stunning House of Bazaar features four different rooms and themes, essentially bringing Harper’s Bazaar diverse publications to life. The house is divided into four rooms and themes: The Wellness Retreat featuring a talk and samplings by the lovely foodie-expert Dalia Dogmoch Soubra; The Boudoir demonstrating the latest in beauty trends by Chanel Beauty’s official make-up artist Toni Malt; The Closet showcasing the latest in luxury fashion by brand consultant Rosemin Manji; The Gallery exhibiting original artworks by LA-based Iranian artist Amir H. Fallah; and of course The Garden, where all the fashionistas of Dubai mingle, enjoy live music and await their turn to tour the house.
We are especially impressed with the beautiful interiors of the almost dollhouse-like house, including all the furniture by Marina Home Interiors, beautiful wallpapers and of course our very own Kährs wood flooring. Amazing styling work by Tory Waller and congratulations to the entire Harper’s Bazaar team for a successful second edition of House of Bazaar! 🙌🏼
This autumn is all about a modern take on vintage glam. We’ve been seeing a lot of vintage influences from the major fashion houses in the recent AW16 Fashion Week shows, influences ranging from the Elizabethan golden era, to the roaring 20’s, glam-luxe 70’s and all the way to the eclectic 90’s.
As for interiors this autumn, we’re seeing a lot of warm colours in rusty and muted tones making a comeback. The focus is on creating a lived-in and layered feeling, something that was very popular in the 70’s. To create a modern take on this look, we recommend selecting a tone of a colour tone and working with it. Work tone-in-tone with the colour to set a base. Complete the look with various objects, ceramics and diverse types of materials. For example, combine a rich velvet sofa with a natural wood floor; an aged leather armchair with suede and satin cushions; speckled ceramic vases with brass candle holders and dusty floral wallpapers.
Our Kährs Oak Smoke wood floor has a beautiful cognac colour that is perfect as a base for your vintage interiors, yet one that is still very versatile throughout the seasons. With its brushed, oiled and smoked surface, this floor will add a warm and cozy feeling to your space.
Key colours: Mustard yellow, rusty orange, muted grey/blue, silver, brass, amber and emerald green.
We’re currently seeing an updated interpretation of 70’s retro-glam interiors with rich petrol blues and golden accents juxtaposed with materials and textures in cold neutral tones. For example, the combination of a petrol-blue velour sofa with brass legs, a greige wood floor, crispy white walls and gold deco details.
To achieve the look, select Kährs Vinga by our new Götaland Collection: a floor where the light cold grey stain appears to have been worn down, revealing the natural oak base.
This impressive home in NoHo, Manhattan is what could be considered to be the epitome of high fashion interiors. The apartment, represented by ESNY, is located inside the Manhattan Savings Institute Bank building (built in 1898) and is considered as one of the era’s most beautiful buildings. After extensive renovations, they have managed to recreate and maintain the building’s glory days, and the property today effectively combines historical details with modern luxury textures such as marble, chrome and a glossy white wood floor that both looks and feels luxurious underfoot.
Maintaining a strict monochromatic colour scheme throughout the apartment with white, grey and black is what essentially makes the home look and feel high fashion. However, the use of luxurious natural textures, materials and natural elements successfully warms the space and makes it inviting and homey.
To get the look, select Kährs Opaque, a natural wood floor with a white semi-transparent stain and a sleek high gloss lacquer.

We LOVE this apartment’s masculine interpretation of 1950/60’s “Retro-Modern” style. A very hipster, yet glam feel, highly reminiscent of what is seen in the hit TV series Mad Men (yes, we are currently imagining Mr. Draper deep in though, sitting in one of those armchairs).
As you might know by now, our favourite combination is black + white + wood, so this apartment definitely scores high in our books. By keeping the palette basic, and focusing on creating depth and interest with diverse textures/textiles and decorative objects, this home has an beautiful and timeless elegance to it.
To achieve this look, opt for Kährs Oak Nouveau Charcoal, a 2-strip wood floor with a brushed, black pigmented, matt lacquer finish. Bevelled 4-sided to create the effect of a beautiful 1-strip plank.
Add everyday glam to your space by adding gold accents to monochromatic white, grey and black colour scheme.
By creating a crisp white base with natural wood flooring and the golden accents to a minimal, you will have less of a nouveau riche, and more of a timeless nordic glamour feel in your space.
Though we’re still waiting for the hyped store to open in the UAE, H&M Home‘s online store inspires us with romantic Bohemian Vintage style this autumn.
Yes, Autumn is just around the corner! And if you, like us, can’t wait for the temperatures to drop a little (or a lot) – then planning for an autumn interior design scheme makes the wait a little less tedious and a lot more exciting. Now, although we don’t really get that cozy autumn feel outdoors, we can always create the feel indoors. So, this autumn we say hello to a darker, smouldering new take on romantic bohemian: bohemian vintage! To achieve this look, combine shiny copper metallics with dark graphite grays and dusty pinks in rugged linen textures and vintage bohemian floral prints.
And if you’re looking for something a little extra special, something so very unique and eye-catching to give that bit of glam-pop to your bohemian vintage look, then say hello to Kährs über-cool wood floor, Black Copper. This 1-strip ash wood floor has a black stain and copper metallic in the pores, and is finished off with a high-gloss lacquer that further enhances the shimmering metallic copper. Absolutely stunning!
