WELCOME TO SCANDIWOOD

Sarah

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 for more classic interiors.

We are loving the combination of raw ash wood (similar to Kährs Ash Skagen) and Scandinavian designer furniture seen in this home below. This place from Folkhem is styled perfectly with nice gradients of whites and greys. When can we move in?

So what feeling do you strive to achieve in your home? Regardless of which you choose, Feng Shui recommends having a strong wood element within your environment in order for it to feel more harmonious and balanced.

GLAM BEACH

Sarah

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 beach. I wanted to preserve the elements that define it, such as the colours of the sand, the sea and the garden, while injecting a sense of unpredictability”” says the homeowner.

“The only challenge that arose was that this villa is a rental, rather than privately owned, so the ‘wow’ factor had to come from the furnishings and decor and not from any dramatic structural changes, which were not possible” says interiors stylist Devjani Cox. That is why Kährs Oak Dome wood flooring was the obvious choice for this home.

The 7 mm thick stained oak floor in a warm white tone from Kährs Linnea range is a wood veneer floor, created using Kährs’ patented three-layer parquet technology. Kährs floors are ideal for people renting their homes, as it is installed in a floating manner on top of any existing tiles or marble flooring without the use of any nails or glue, thereby eliminating the risk of damage to the subfloor.

STONE WHITE

Sarah

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 of it – as seen in the home pictured below.

A great option for a light wood floor is Oak Limestone by Kährs Harmony Collection – a 3-strip floor with a brushed, white stained, matt lacquered surface. It is a clean grade with some colour variation. A highly versatile and beautiful wood floor that will brighten up any space!

NAUTICAL DREAM

Sarah

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 floors are inspired by the sea, and are as unique as they are elegant in natural Swedish oak, with contrasting strips and oiled surface.

The beautiful Kährs Oak/Dark Strip Marbella wood floor creates a maritime feel in the home all through the year. Nautical perfection!

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!

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.

THE BRONZE AGE

Sarah

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.

With such a beautiful wood floor, there is no need for much other than a clean base. For a lifetime of satisfaction, your wood floor should be able to stand out yet blend in at the same time. Once you have it, you will simply wonder how you ever could have been without it. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

That’s the beauty of Kährs Oak Nouveau Bronze, a 1-strip floor with a brushed, bronze pigmented, matt lacquer finish.

MOLTEN LAVA

Sarah

Reminiscent of an hip hotel suite in bustling Manhattan, this opulent studio apartment creates an airy feel with its high ceilings, neutral scheme and punches of colour in details. All elements of this home add up to the highly interesting and luxurious look of an exclusive Manhattan hotel suite, while still containing the warmth and welcoming feel of a home.

To get this look, select a dark chocolate wood flooring such as Oak Lava by Kährs Harmony Collection. The dramatic 3-strip floor will effortlessly give your home that cool, timeless Manhattan style while creating a sense of comfort underfoot.

DARING TO BE DIFFERENT

Sarah

In the latest issue of InsideOut magazine, you will find a feature on one of our clients’ apartments in Dubai Marina. Mr Wilfred, who lives in the apartment with his two adorable dogs Pierre and  Chu Chu, selected the beautiful Ash Gotland wood floor from Kährs Nordic Naturals Collection. Ash Gotland is a light, exclusive 1-strip floor with nature’s own design showing through its dramatic knots and a lively structure. A characteristic is its bi-colour pattern. The darker core in Ash creates fantastic patterns and makes this a very special floor.

Here is a sneak peak from InsideOut magazine’s app version for tablets. Don’t forget that you can download the app for free today to read the full interview with Mr Wilfred to find out about his story and thinking behind his eccentric home.
