CHRISTMAS BY LOTTA AGATON

Sarah

We are loving the natural, laid-back and cozy Christmas feeling of these images by renowned Swedish stylist Lotta Agaton.

Her styling plays on the winning combination of greys, browns, greens and whites with various natural materials like wood, jute and wool, which we think is absolute perfection. The styling feels really spot-on for this year’s natural, clean, timeless theme for Christmas!

RAW LUXURY

Sarah

We are in love. The combination of colours and textures in this Berlin apartment is so incredibly sophisticated yet edgy, deep and dark. The white and wood contrast to the grey/dark tones brings everything into balance. A perfect raw, industrial kind of luxury.

To achieve the same edgy look, select Kährs Husk Oak a natural oak floor with a worn, rustic finish that offers old-fashioned appeal.

URTH

Sarah

Feldgrau is a greenish grey colour and beautifully combines with other earthy tones, such as taupe and khaki. This suave colour combination is timeless, suitable for any style of interiors, from vintage to contemporary. One example is the vintage-infused “hipster” style of interiors (check out the gorgeous Ace Hotel as an example) that we love!

Kährs Oak Ulf is a true rustic wood floor where the surface is handcrafted and deeply brushed to enhance the beauty and specific characteristics of each and every board. Stained to a warm dark green/grey that gives it a rich colour tone. We really love this cosy, earthy floor.

BLACK // WHITE // BRASS

Sarah

There’s something about the tiniest bit of brass that instantly makes a space more interesting. Especially spaces with lots of matte white and black surfaces; small amounts gold add a lived-in and sophisticated quality.

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.

CALIFORNIA DREAMING

Sarah

Today’s rather hazy weather is making us daydream about the summer and beach.. or more specifically: California’s dreamy beaches. That heavenly combination of sun, sand and salt (and a refreshing post-beach açai bowl to top it off).

PS. Word on the street is that there’ll be waves this weekend, so be sure to catch some surf! Be sure to check it out, it’s really beautiful to watch all the surfers with Burj Al Arab as a backdrop at sunset. Et voilà – we have our very own version of California’s hip surf scene right here in Dubai.

CREAMY MAPLE

Sarah

It’s not everyday that one comes across a home with Hard Maple wood floors. We are especially loving seeing it in this home. The interiors are a perfect balance of what can only be described as a mix of circus-esque quirk and classic elegance that is really refreshing to see. And the clean grade of the floor makes it a subtle, warm and comforting base in the home.

Other wood species such as Oak and Walnut are substantially more popular than Hard Maple for wood flooring. However, Hard Maple is a durable wood species. It has a creamy colour that undergoes a fairly major colour change, where the creamy tone turns golden over time. Hard Maple is an excellent wood species for cabinet making; beautiful tables, cupboards and boxes are also often made from Hard Maple. Hard Maple flooring is light, airy and timeless.

Kährs Hard Maple Toronto is a light floor in North American maple. The strips are selected to provide a subdued, harmonious impression.

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.

//BREATHE//

Sarah

When in doubt about combining colours, I always say it’s best to look to nature for inspiration. And why shouldn’t we? After all, nature is associated with harmony for a reason. Vibrant, manmade colours might be great for accents, but for a base that you will never tire of and that will certainly never go out of style, nature’s own colour schemes (and textures) are truly the best, and most sustainable, source of inspiration.

Combining soft greys, dusty-olive greens and rich cocoa brown patinas for your base, you will create a classically elegant combination that will definitely bring harmony to your home. Depending on your personal style, you can calibrate the masculine-to-feminine feel to this colour scheme – the key lies entirely in the finishing touches.

A beautiful wood floor such as Oak Ulf by Kährs Founders Collection is the perfect tone of olive/grey/brown. Handcrafted and deeply brushed to enhance the beauty and specific characteristics of each and every board.
