MODERN RETRO

Sarah

We’re loving deep emerald greens in combination with smokey brown wood and contrasting whites and brass. Interiors inspired by the iconic mid-century modern era and its nature-focused colour and material palette. Where the linear meets the organic – blurring out the lines between feminine and masculine. An interior that creates a sense of cosy comfort and timeless sophistication at the same time.

Our new Floor of the Month Kährs Oak Smoke has beautiful tobacco-brown hues enhanced by its richly smoked finish. Each board is carefully brushed to bring out the character of the grain and highlight the natural texture of the wood.

We are now offering with a special 20% discount on Kährs Oak Smoke during August 2017. Contact us for more information.

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.

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!

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!

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.

BLACK COPPER

Sarah

Though we’re still waiting for the hyped store to open in the UAE, H&M Home‘s online store inspires us with romantic Bohemian Vintage style this autumn.

Yes, Autumn is just around the corner! And if you, like us, can’t wait for the temperatures to drop a little (or a lot) – then planning for an autumn interior design scheme makes the wait a little less tedious and a lot more exciting. Now, although we don’t really get that cozy autumn feel outdoors, we can always create the feel indoors. So, this autumn we say hello to a darker, smouldering new take on romantic bohemian: bohemian vintage! To achieve this look, combine shiny copper metallics with dark graphite grays and dusty pinks in rugged linen textures and vintage bohemian floral prints.

And if you’re looking for something a little extra special, something so very unique and eye-catching to give that bit of glam-pop to your bohemian vintage look, then say hello to Kährs über-cool wood floor, Black Copper. This 1-strip ash wood floor has a black stain and copper metallic in the pores, and is finished off with a high-gloss lacquer that further enhances the shimmering metallic copper. Absolutely stunning!
