LES BLEUS

Sarah

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.

TREEHOTEL

Sarah

Have you heard about the magical and enchanting Treehotel in the woodlands of Harads in northern Sweden? Located a mere 50 km south of the Arctic Circle, this hotel offers tree-cabins with a contemporary design in the middle of the unspoiled northern Swedish nature with impressive vistas as far as the eye can see.

One of the cabins, The Dragonfly, offers big panoramic windows with a magnificent view of the valley. The cabin, designed by Rintala Eggertsson Architects, is built out of wood, with an exterior made out of sheet metal that will eventually turn rust-brown and blend in even further with the pine-tree forest. The Dragonfly cabin features our very own pitch-black Kährs Oak Nouveau Charcoal wood flooring.

KRUKMAKARGATAN 24

Sarah

This apartment in Stockholm, Sweden is super inspirational! We especially love the minimalist kitchen with black cabinets and stainless steel accents, and the cozy eating area by the window with a social “bar table” feeling and views over the street below.

In order to maximise the natural light of the space, the owners of this home have not applied any heavy drapes or curtains to the windows, and have softened the quite angular and sharp-lined space with lots of natural green plants and textures.

Because the home has a relatively open-plan kitchen towards the living room – with minimal walls diving the two spaces – it is perfect that they have laid the same natural oak wood flooring, similar to our Kährs Oak Jersey wood floor, throughout the two rooms to create a continuous flow. Kährs Oak Jersey is a 1-strip floor in selected oak. The bevelled edges help to create a floor whose look and feel recall bygone days.

MINIMALIST CHARM

Sarah

That’s it, we’ve officially fallen in interior-love. The amazing team behind Marie Laurent Architecture have done it once again- taken a proverbial “ugly duckling” (or in this case, standard-made apartment); stripped it down; built it up and turned it into the beautiful swan that is this designer-heaven-light-loving home.

We have worked with the Marie Laurent Architecture team in the the past, and were really excited to work with them on this apartment in Cayan Tower in Dubai Marina to create a beautiful bright and airy space with a cozy feel using our Kährs wood flooring.

Featuring endless amounts of quirky art, sleek Scandinavian furniture and minimalist decor, this home is the epitome of interior design done perfectly. Every aspect of this project has been carefully executed, each detail carefully curated. And of course there’s the juxtaposition of the rustic white-washed oak wood floor against all the modern, sleek furniture that we will always love.

The floor selected is our Oak Olof by Kährs Founders Collection. This floor is a true rustic product where the surface is handcrafted and deeply brushed to enhance the beauty and specific characteristics of each and every board. A white stain gives the floor a true white look.

URBAN TROPICANA

Sarah

Living in Dubai, we’re fortunate to be in a part of the world that lies between beautiful tropical jungles and cultured urban cities. So why not reflect a combination of both styles in our homes?

We’re currently feeling inspired by tropical greens with a clean and minimalistic urban twist. We suggest updating the typical tropical deco by combining our pure white Kährs Ash Alabaster wood flooring with large green leafy plants, white linen and cotton furniture and small green marble accents; as well as an abundance of neutral tones, natural light and large open spaces to maintain that bright, airy and tropical holiday feeling.

A perfect combination creating that urban tropicana vibe.

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.

CLEAN LINES & GREY TONES

Sarah

We absolutely love this home in Gothenburg, Sweden with its clean lines and airy feel. We especially love the clean colour scheme of this home, where it’s almost as though the full greyscale tones have been utilised – ranging from whites, to soft greiges (i.e. the combo of gray and beige), to dark slates and nearly-black hues. Using this spectrum of grey shades creates a sense of harmony throughout the entire home, uniting all the diverse areas and spaces.

To achieve this look, we suggest opting for our new Kährs Oak Nouveau Gray wood floor. This floor has a light gray colour with earth tones that works well as a base for a variety of interior styles; with the sapwood elements breathing life and variation into the surface.

PASTEL NURSERY

Sarah

Nursery rooms are very intimate spaces, a space where your children can wind down to rest, first place they wake up, a place where play and use their imagination. Therefore, the way you design your child’s nursery and room plays a big role in their well-being.

We are currently feeling really inspired by muted pastel pink tones in combination with earth beiges and whites. The colour combination is calming, inspiring and timeless.

We suggest using our beautiful Kährs Vista wood flooring. Vista is a rustic, handscraped product containing large knots. Misty white in color with balanced contrast and transparency.

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!
