HAPPY EASTER

Sarah

One of the best things about the Easter holiday is undoubtedly that you can sleep in late and have a long, luxurious breakfast. And we’re loving Stylizimo‘s beautiful and inspirational breakfast food and decor combination, with white washed oak, bright whites, fresh greens, dusty pastel yellows and pinks.

A SCANDINAVIAN CLASSIC: KÄHRS OAK SIENA

Sarah

We’ve written about classic 3-strip oak flooring before, but each time we see a 3-strip oak floor in a natural finish, we can’t help but spread the word once more. A 3-strip floor in a natural oak and silk matt lacquer finish is probably the most common, and most loved wood flooring in homes in Scandinavia. Although each plank is made up of three smaller wood strips across its width, the floor still provides a calm appearance that is appreciated by all.

There are many reasons as to why we will always love our floor Oak Siena by Kährs European Naturals Collection. The beauty of this 3-strip natural oak wood floor is not only that it is a great option economically, but it also goes with all interior design schemes, and with its factory-finished surface treatment and engineered structure – it will be sure to last you a lifetime (further proven by its 30-year warranty). This floor only becomes more beautiful with time, and will perfectly harmonize and lift all of your furnishings.

And we’ve got great news: Oak Siena is now available in stock in Dubai! Interested in seeing a sample of Oak Siena in our showroom or at your own home? Give us a call on +971 4 369 55 69 for more information.

FEELING BLUE

Sarah

Today we’re feeling a little blue.. but not in a bad way!

Blue is such a great and versatile colour, don’t you think? So naturally we can’t resist shedding a little well-deserved light on our statement floor Oak Maison from Kährs Grande Collection – a blue-toned wood floor with impressive 2.8 meter long planks. Certainly puts a smile on our faces this Thursday!

KNOTTED LOVE

Sarah

This wonderful villa in The Meadows has embraced the trend of having a super-knotty rustic floor and contemporary furnishing.

The owners selected Husk Oak by Kährs Rugged Collection – a very rustic board with knots, cracks, and handscraping that feels marvellous underfoot with its slight wave on each plank. Exuberating the kind of warmth and coziness that a home should, all the while staying trendy with contrasting modern interiors.

We love to see the trend of rustic flooring vs. contemporary furnishing continue to flourish. We also LOVE to see how much pets love Kährs wood floors!

GREIGE

Sarah

Greige  ˈgrā(zh)
A colour between grey and beige, closely akin to taupe; Unfinished; not fully processed; neither bleached nor dyed.

The graphic black and white interiors that have been popular on a wide front for several seasons has gained major competition from “greige” interiors. This combination of soft grays and dirty beige earth tones, is romantic, timeless, whimsical and beautiful.

Pearl by Kährs Shine Collection is the perfect wood floor with its high-gloss, silver/pearl shimmer finish if you are looking to add a tasteful and contemporary kind of glamour to your greige interiors.

If the rustic kind of bold is more your thing, then our grandest wood floor Oak Espace by Kährs Grande Collection is the one for you. Not only is it beautifully smoked with heavy variations between grey and beige/brown tones, but it is also handscraped and contains knots and cracks for that true rustic feeling best experienced by bare feet.

FABRIQUÉ À LA MAIN

Sarah

The beauty of artisanal charm and age-old traditions. Freshly baked bread; earthy, rustic textures; the essence of blooming lavender fields. What’s not to love about southern France?

There’s no wonder why Kährs has dedicated an entire collection to highly skilled craftsmanship with its own unique style and character, that reflects highly on the artisanal French spirit. The Artisan Collection is an artistic range of floors based on the unique characteristics of oak. With a wide spectrum of colour variations, the bevelled edge, brushed wood floor offers a large scope of options to suit all interior styles.

AFRICA DREAMING

Sarah

“While the more stereotypical animal print and wood designs traditionally found in African-inspired interiors are beautiful, African design seems to be embracing contemporary influences, pairing them with ethnic furniture style and colour. Being the second largest continent on the planet after Asia, there is certainly plenty to be inspired by.” – InsideOut, February 2012

This home in Dubai’s Green Community has exactly that – a beautiful contemporary and airy take on rustic African design. Dramatic, vintage-looking Kährs Oak Danaborg wood flooring completes the look. Oak Danaborg has a handcrafted surface to enhance the beauty of the knots and cracks, and is lightly smoked and surface treated with a natural white oil that gives it a grey look.

RUSTIC MONOCHROME

Sarah

Is there a better description for this turn-of-the-century attic apartment than rustic monochrome?

The large bright living room; the original black beams on the ceiling; a dramatic black wood floor that pops against the crisp white walls; a beautiful fireplace that cozies up the space. This is a winning combination.

If you would like to have a monochrome scheme but fear it might come across as being too cold, then adding some natural materials and textures such as natural plants and wood elements (for example, an oak coffee table with a beautiful brown patina) as well as memorabilia or heirlooms will create a sense of balance. The key to achieving charm and an inhabited feeling ultimately lies in the details.

You can also take it a step further by introducing an accent colour in small details such as cushions or throws, and rotate the colour on a seasonal basis – all while keeping the monochrome base.

As for the floor – if you are interested in a dramatic black oak floor that will last a lifetime – we recommend Kährs Oak Nouveau Charcoal, a 2-strip floor with a brushed, black pigmented, matt lacquer finish.
