H&M HOME SS17

Sarah

In an age of the fast-pace/high-tech; 2017 interiors are all about going back to basics – bringing nature indoors, using soft organic shapes and calming earthy tones.

Materials such as velvet, sleek metal and wood flooring such as our Floor of the Month Kährs Brownie (now offered with a 20% discount) make a perfectly harmonious combination.

AUTUMN 2016 TRENDS

Sarah

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.

EAT GREEK KOUZINA

Sarah

Eat Greek Kouzina restaurant makes you feel like you’ve transitioned out of Dubai and onto an artisanal island in Greece. Being a part of the 36,000sqm extension project at the Mall of the Emirates completed in 2015, this is the second Eat Greek Kouzina in Dubai fitted with our Kährs wood flooring, following their first branch located at The Beach, JBR.

Eat Greek Kouzina at Mall of the Emirates features our Kährs Indossati wood flooring, an extremely rustic floor with knots and cracks which gives it a very old look, and where the surface has been light smoked and white stained.

ECLECTIC HOME IN LYON

Sarah

This incredible apartment in Lyon, France features an earthy, neutral colour palette throughout the base as well as in the eclectic furnishings (well hello there gorgeous Eames armchair!) and art; and has three different patterns in the wood flooring – including a diamond, chevron and herringbone pattern – all in the same aged wood and colour. An incredibly interesting and beautiful combination that still manages to create a sense of harmony despite the many different elements.

BRUNSWICK SPORTS CLUB

Sarah

Up for some #BevviesandBurgers anyone? Brunswick Sports Club is the latest brainchild of F&B-duo Tom Arnel and Sergio Lopez, founders of Bull&Roo Hospitality. This pub is their first licensed venue, and is located inside Sheraton Hotel, on Level 2 of Mall of the Emirates.

The pub could very well be described as having the atmosphere of “Cheers” (classic American sitcom with the famous theme song, “Where Everybody Knows Your Name”) while looking like a modern, clean-cut sports bar that’s a feast for every interior design-loving eye. This place oozes a laid back come-as-you-are attitude and is sure to become your home away from home. A place where sports fanatics and fashionistas can meet under one roof to grab a “bevvy and burger”, while enjoying a game or simply to socialise!

Our vintage-looking Kährs Castillo Oak wood flooring adds to the overall yet cozy feeling of the space, and was selected by the talented interior design consultants, YamJam Creative.

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!

INTO THE WILD

Sarah

With Earth Hour upon us this weekend, we’re feeling really inspired by all things nature, earth and sustainability, and with increasing talks about bringing nature indoors, we are looking to Africa for its strong cultural bond with nature and the wilderness.

The use of all-natural materials such as wood, stone, jute and plants such as seagrass has consistently placed African craftsmanship on the proverbial interior design map, especially in today’s sustainability-conscious age.

As a base, we’re loving Oak Earth by Kährs Artisan Collection, which has a rich brown colour that varies from a light gold to dark and sultry soil. The wood floor’s handscraped and oiled surface also further enhances its natural feeling and provides a very special comfort underfoot. As often seen in tribal/ethnic-inspired African interiors, we recommend combining this wood floor with other earthy tones and natural materials- ranging from light creams, to golden caramel and dark tones to create beautiful and timeless harmony.

CATCHING UP WITH NATASHA

Sarah

We recently caught up with one of our clients, Natasha Singh, Senior Sales Consultant at House Hunters Dubai, to hear what she has to say about her experience with Nordic Homeworx and how she’s enjoying the Kährs Oak Oyster wood flooring in her family’s Arabian Ranches home.

Savannah Arabian Ranches 1

Q: How has your experience been with Nordic Homeworx?

A: We have had a great experience. Your team was great as well, especially your sales representative, Philipe. From the time we went to choose the flooring he was fabulous and very patient. We took a while to choose the floor and went back and forth many times. Your installation team was also perfect, your installation manager Jamil was great. Even later on we had a few issues and he came and sorted it out, actually even a year later. There aren’t many places you get this kind of customer service in Dubai. I recommend you to loads of friends, everyone who walks into this house falls in love with the flooring.

Q: Were you concerned about your dog when buying your floor?

A: Yes, some say pets will scratch the wood floors. We’ve had laminate flooring before, but we’ve never dealt with real wood flooring, so we were a little bit concerned seeing as the floor is an investment. But it is definitely suitable; very easy to maintain and we’ve had no issues with our dog at all. In fact, it’s nice because it has grains and grooves in it – it gives our dog a good grip to walk on. He loves it!

Q: What made you choose Kährs Oak Oyster in particular?

A: Our existing floor was a rosewood-coloured floor and we wanted something light to brighten up this house. Oak Oyster is absolutely beautiful. The older it gets, the colour changes for the good, and looks even more rustic and vintage. It’s in our bedrooms as well, and we’re really happy with it; it’s got a really good feel to it. We walk barefoot on the flooring and it just feels so good! It took us a bit of time to choose the floor because we thought we should go for a darker floor for upstairs. We like walnut too, so we brought planks home from the Nordic Homeworx showroom of both floors and sat with them for a week to help us decide. But then we went with the lighter one eventually and kept the same floor throughout the entire house for a more bright and streamlined feel.

In fact I had a client who wanted to sell her house, she was a friend as well, and she came over and just fell in love with our flooring. Eventually she said, “I’m not selling my home, I’m just going to put this flooring down and it will look fabulous!”

Q: Is there any aspects in particular that you think makes us stand out from other companies that you have dealt with during your renovations?

A: You guys definitely stand out in customer service. That’s something you don’t get very often in Dubai. We have a fair bit of experience because we have been living in Dubai for 14 years and have had a lot of renovations done in our house.

Nordic Homeworx and the people we dealt with, such as Philipe and Jamil, have been a real pleasure and so accommodating. Just great customer satisfaction including good after-sales, even a year later. That’s not what you expect from a lot of companies here. Definitely a big deal when you’re getting work done in your home.

Q: Did you find our installers were professional and respected your home?

A: Yes, we didn’t have to do anything. They brought the vacuum cleaner, cleaned, oiled and made sure everything was done to the highest standard. The team that was brought in really knew what they were doing. They were really professional and very fast. They even completed the installation faster than expected, which was excellent. The entire downstairs was laid out in three days, including the skirting. It was perfect!

Q: Seeing as you are in the real estate business, in your experience, do you feel that wood flooring increases the value of a house?

A: I definitely think so. The houses that I sold with wood flooring really got a very good price – not only because they present really well, but also because buyers can appreciate the fact that a flooring has been in the house for an extended amount of time and is still in really good condition. The wood floor also gives off an immediate homey feel to it, which is really inviting.

When I’ve taken clients to view houses, you can see they find a house with your wood flooring much more appealing than a house of the same style, look and layout without it. The moment they walk into a house with Kährs wood flooring, the client is always wowed by it.

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.
