If you’ve ever walked into a home and immediately thought that it was a beautiful classic home, chances are the house had wooden flooring.

MINIMALIST CHARM

July 14, 2016

That’s it, we’ve officially fallen in interior-love. The amazing team behind Marie Laurent Architecture have done it once again- taken a proverbial “ugly duckling” (or in this case, standard-made apartment); stripped it down; built it up and turned it into the beautiful swan that is this designer-heaven-light-loving home. We have worked with the Marie Laurent Architecture team in […]

LOFT APARTMENT

1920’S & HERRINGBONE FLOORS

April 21, 2016

This apartment in Sweden perfectly demonstrates how to modernise a traditional space. Original elegant features remain from when it was build in the 1920’s, including the natural herringbone oak wood floor, wall-mouldings, iron-cast radiators, built-in wardrobes and deep windowsills. However, it is the subtle-yet-highly-effective design features such as the neutral colour scheme, natural light and brightness (courtesy of the large windows), high ceilings and […]

A PIED À TERRE AT THE PALM DUBAI

March 8, 2015

In this coastal style pied-à-terre, it is proven that you don’t have to sacrifice sophistication and glamour to live small.

WALNUT MONTREAL

December 29, 2014

You know by now that we love the combination of white walls, white doors and white skirting set against wood floor. And this renovated apartment in Gothenburg is a great example of how natural walnut flooring in particular conveys a true sense of luxury and cosiness in a home. Kährs Walnut Montreal is a 3-strip walnut wood floor […]

RELIABILITY IS KEY

November 24, 2014

We’re always happy when we come across beautiful, simplistic homes that feature a classic 3-strip wood floor made from natural oak. And you must know by now that our favourite go-to wood floor is Kährs Oak Siena; a classic floor with strips selected to provide a calm appearance but still with certain degree of variation in the grain. […]

LET THE LIGHT IN

November 18, 2014

This lovely apartment in central Stockholm is not more than a large studio apartment, but with some creative styling, these owners have been able to transform the home into an airy 1 bedroom apartment. We’ve seen an increase in inner walls/partitions made from glass with black trims that creates a divide for privacy while allowing for […]

MALMÖ // SIENA

November 5, 2014

This duplex apartment in Malmö, Sweden shows us what an excellent and cosy base a simple, classic 3-strip natural oak wood floor creates in a space.

This beautiful apartment is characterised by its generous ceiling height, modern stylish selection of materials and its cool industrial feel.

Kährs Oak Nouveau Brown is a 1-strip floor in selected oak, treated with brown […]

LAND DOWN UNDER

August 31, 2014

While the current trend leaning towards lighter, or more natural earthy tones in wood flooring, it was really refreshing to come across this property with a classic, red-toned wood floor with an exotic feel. Kährs Jarrah Sydney is a beautiful, sustainably-sourced, 3-strip wood floor with a dramatic colour. Jarrah (Australian Eucalyptus) is a dark and very durable wood species, […]

Du gamla, Du fria, Du fjällhöga nord. Du tysta, Du glädjerika sköna! This past Friday on June 6th, we celebrated the Swedish National Day.

BACK TO BASICS

April 23, 2014

Sometimes, you just need to keep it basic. But basic does not have to be boring. Sticking to basics in your home will actually give you more room to be creative- room to change and evolve as your personal preferences naturally do over time. Your space is a representation, a reflection, of you. Keep your […]

URBAN TROPIC

February 10, 2014

The first thought that came to mind when seeing this one-bedroom apartment in central Stockholm was: urban tropic. That’s how I feel is the best way to describe the style of this funky home. What makes this home so interesting is that there is a clear mix of vibrant classic caribbean colours (the wallpaper behind the […]

This bright home with a killer view over the Dubai Marina has beautiful metallic details, a luxurious marble kitchen island, high gloss white finishes, light petrol blue wall colour (very on-trend) and a cozy […]

[ASH]

October 22, 2013

Ash is a strong, hard wood species, even harder than Oak. This wood species is pale in a typical Scandinavian way with fine, brown streaks and few discreet knots. It has a relatively long grain and ambers over the years. Ash is used to make tools, wood flooring and furniture. Some of Kährs Ash floors […]

WHITE DOVE

September 26, 2013

Old meets new and modern in this charming loft apartment. The already extremely bright space gets further enhanced with the white wood floor, clean lines, sheer curtains and minimal, monochrome furniture.

A HOME WITH A TEAL TWIST

BLACK COPPER

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 […]

SHABBY CHIC

August 7, 2013

Shabby chic is a beautiful interior design style, made famous by British designer Rachel Ashwell in the late 1980’s. The main characteristic of shabby chic interior design is aged furniture. It could be chosen for its appearance of age with all these signs of wear and tear or it can be distressed to achieve the appearance […]

WELCOME TO SCANDIWOOD

July 15, 2013

Something important to keep in mind when designing a space is the kind of style you want to portray. For instance, a light wood floor immediately makes for a more sleek, fresh and Scandinavian style. Darker wood on the other hand, makes for a more colonial and elegant feel, while cherry or redder woods generally make […]

GLAM BEACH

July 2, 2013

Palm Jumeirah’s coastal qualities and the villa’s seafront locale influenced the look of this home. Every inch of this vibrant 6,500 sq. ft. Atrium villa on Palm Jumeirah is full of contemporary and retro furnishings, memorabilia, sculptures and art that achieve a finely tuned balance, which is both elegant and engaging. “This is a villa by the […]

STONE WHITE

April 15, 2013

If you feel that your home is lacking natural light and are looking to brighten up your home, then we recommend installing a light-coloured wood floor. One main tip is to lay the wood floor in the direction of a window or glass door in order for the floor to reflect the natural light off […]

NAUTICAL DREAM

April 8, 2013

Looking out over the Dubai sea, we can’t help but daydream about sailing. We love all things nautical – from the elegant sailing boats and striped attire to the jute ropes and classical boat shoes. So it comes as no surprise that we are especially fond of Kährs exclusive Marina Collection. Kährs beautiful ships decking […]

KNOTTED LOVE

March 19, 2013

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 ROOM WITH A VIEW

March 6, 2013

This stunning Index Tower apartment with breathtaking views in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) beautifully combines elegant contemporary furniture and suave earth tones with two beautiful Kährs wood floors – Oak Coffee FSC and Walnut Bloom.

AFRICA DREAMING

February 21, 2013

“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 […]

THE BRONZE AGE

January 13, 2013

This central Stockholm apartment has a beautiful golden-brown oak floor that balances out the high ceilings and white base; and lets each piece of furniture stand out individually, while unifying to a whole interior design scheme.

THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER

October 11, 2012

We adore this bright and airy Hamptons-inspired Saheel Villa in Arabian Ranches, Dubai.

TRÈS, TRÈS CHIC

September 20, 2012

This absolutely gorgeous Mirador villa in Arabian Ranches is the ultimate representation of the romantic Shabby Chic style.

CLEAN SLATE

September 11, 2012

Yesterday we visited our client’s villa in Victory Heights (Esmeralda Village) in the Dubailand District to photograph our all-time favourite grey coloured Kährs wood floor – Oak Slate by Kährs Artisan Collection.
