BEDROOM INSPIRATION: INDUSTROMANCE

Sarah

The bedroom is one of the most important spaces in a home, and making sure that it is a calm, harmonious and tranquil space is an absolute must.

We are really feeling inspired by the “industromance” (industrial meets romantic) in this bedroom in Sweden via Stadshem Mäkleri. The combination of earthy tones and natural materials together create a very cosy and inviting feeling.

Seeing as the most important element in the bedroom is the bed, especially considering that we spend on average 25 years(!) of our lives sleeping- it is best to ensure the mattress you select is comfortable and of a high quality standard. A great option for high-quality mattresses is the Dream Mattress by Celeste. The Dream Mattress was specially designed for the hot weather of the UAE, and regulates air flow and restores your energy while you sleep. Definitely worth the investment!

We suggest pairing Celeste’s Dream Mattress with a simple, nearly-invisible base and cosy white linen sheets for a Scandinavian look. Add soft details such as a beautiful pendant lamp, rug, cushions and art with a little bit rougher, industrial-style accents such as a floor/table lamp, wire basket, and clothes rack.

Complete the look with a rustic wood floor with a slight grey tint, such as Möre by Kährs Småland Collection. Möre is a rustic floor with a scraped, flowing surface that high enhances the structure in an natural way, where the cold grey tones appear to have been worn down, revealing a warmer base.

We love the combination of the hard and soft textures in this industromantic bedroom!

MEXICAN SUMMER

Sarah

When we think of Mexico, we think of white sandy beaches, turquoise waters, beautiful aged wood and intricately patterned textiles. And dreamy, romantic summers. Bring a piece of Mexico into your home with Kährs Oak Cancun. This wood floor is reminiscent of Cancun’s iconic sandy beaches with its elegantly muted yellow, grey and white-toned stain and natural oak texture.

Stepping away from the typically colourful style, we suggest opting for a more neutral take on classic Mexican interiors. Neutral does not have to be boring! By playing with different natural textures, materials, tones and patterns typical to the Mexican heritage and culture, you can achieve a more stripped and calming look and feel.

CELEBRATE LOVE

Sarah

February is known as the month of love, and considering it was Valentine’s Day yesterday, we’re feeling inspired by all things romantic at the moment.

Did you know that the colour pink represents compassion, nurturing and love? It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing. In colour psychology, pink is a sign of hope. It is a positive colour inspiring warm and comforting feelings- a sense that everything will be okay. 

Add a touch of pink to neutral interiors to add that true sense of warmth and comfort, and combine with a beautifully rustic wood floor such as Kährs Oak Olof, with its handcrafted, deeply brushed, white stain and luscious nature oiled surface.

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.

WANDERLUST

Sarah

Do you ever daydream about travelling and discovering exotic, fascinating places around the world? Then you’ve probably got a case of this:

wanderlust
ˈwɒndəlʌst/
a strong desire to travel

This autumn we’re not only still seeing a strong presence of natural materials, but also the concept of bringing pieces of the world into your home. Even if you are unable to travel so far, you can bring in exotic, vintage worldly elements into your home. By keeping the tones neutral, you create a common thread for an overall calm, harmonious and romantic bohemian feeling in your home.

And what better to match worldly interiors than a beautifully aged, rugged and rustic wood floor by Kährs Da Capo Collection? Namely Indossati – an extremely rustic board with knots and cracks which gives it a very old look. The lightly smoked and white stained surface gives the floor a fresh and natural bohemian look that we love!

INDUSTROMANCE

Sarah

What do you get when you combine romantic and industrial elements? Industromance.

And that is exactly what we’re loving about Yvonne Koné‘s newly opened flagship store in Copenhagen, Denmark, designed by Studio Oliver Gustav. The nude pink combined with the raw, gray-hued wooden floors and iron details are the sophisticated elements that compose the subtle beauty of the store.

Like the look? We’ve got the perfect wood floor to steal the style with. Kährs Oak Slate is a really rustic wood floor with a heavy handscraping. Smoking gives the board a purple-gray-blue hue with white pores. The ideal floor for a true industromantic space.

VINTAGE FLOWER CHILD

Sarah

Decorate your child’s room with dusted pink florals set against a clean white contrast (e.g. a crisp white wood floor like Kährs Ash Alabaster) to create a calm, vintage and nostalgic feeling in the space. Decorating in this romantic neo-floral bohemian style is not only very on-trend and cool; it is also a design scheme that is guaranteed to evoke happiness and inspiration from your child.

LA HAUTE VIE

Sarah

We recently had the pleasure of having a  photo shoot in our clients’ Mirador villa in Arabian Ranches – a beautiful and bright family home fully fitted with Kährs wood flooring. This home bathes in natural sunlight throughout the day and strongly reminds us of the French Riviera/Côte d’Azur with its plethora of glamorous furnishings and unique decorative gems combined with rustic, romantic touches. And that gorgeous Cocker Spaniel pup! Precious.

Kährs Oak Hultaby is a really rustic 1-strip wood floor where the surface is handcrafted to enhance the beauty of the knots and cracks. The floor is surface-treated with a natural white oil in the factory, making it the perfect choice for a family home with children and pets. A heavy-duty floor that is guaranteed to last for generations.

A TOUCH OF PRETTY

Sarah

Soft pink tones are known to have a strong calming effect. In interior decoration, the soft pink color is often used for a romantic style, inspired by royal palaces and their beautiful environments. A colour scheme that goes in powdered pink, cool gray, soft cream, rich brown and a touch of shimmering gold evokes a classically luxurious yet contemporary feeling.

Combined with a beautiful wood floor, such as Kährs Oak Sture (for a warm gray, brown tone) or Kährs Oak Milano (for a soft blonde, golden base) the space will feel luxurious and welcoming.
