TESTIMONIAL: ULRIKA

June 5, 2017

Our client, Ulrika Hedlund, Co-founder and Managing Director of Dubai-based Business Productivity, transformed a standard Rimal apartment in Jumeriah Beach Residence into a beautiful family home. Ulrika, a Swedish native, wanted to create a cozy home for herself, her husband and three children that reflected their Swedish heritage and enhanced the beautiful views over JBR and Palm Jumeirah, […]

BEFORE AND AFTER

May 14, 2017

Last week we visited our client’s apartment with our trusted partner Studio Zee for a photoshoot of their newly renovated home. We had been to the apartment back in November 2016, before renovations began, in order to get some before shots – and we are so happy we did because what a transformation it was! Here are a […]

WALNUT LOVE

March 30, 2017

We are loving the updated take on walnut wood floors in this apartment in Stockholm, Sweden. The contrast of the bright and clean interiors against the classic walnut floor and mid-century style decor creates a warm and timeless yet modern feeling. For a similar look, select our Kährs Garden Walnut with a natural 1-strip design. Via […]

BARE ESSENTIALS

December 15, 2016

This classic apartment in Stockholm, Sweden has a perfect minimalist and elegant look with its glass partition/herringbone oak wood floor combination. We are still loving the glass partitions!

GREVGATAN 35

September 28, 2016

This apartment in central Stockholm, Sweden by ESNY has dreamy interiors! We love the aged herringbone-patterned oak wood floor (like our rustic Kährs Oak CD herringbone wood floor) and the classic earthy-toned interiors with a feminine touch. Images via ESNY

This classic home in Stockholm features a silvery/white 3-strip oak wood floor, identical to our very own Kährs Oak Limestone! Love the calm and soothing feeling of this home, especially in the sweet nursery room ? Images via Fantastic Frank

Karlavagen OscarProperties 5

CLASSIC HOME

August 17, 2016

This apartment by Oscar Properties in Stockholm has classically elegant interiors that we love. The interiors are a combination of traditional and modern Scandinavian classics with lots of brass, copper and wood elements; and a muted colour scheme with white, grey, black, beige and brown as the base. What ties it all together is of course the […]

KRUKMAKARGATAN 24

August 4, 2016

This apartment in Stockholm, Sweden is super inspirational! We especially love the minimalist kitchen with black cabinets and stainless steel accents, and the cozy eating area by the window with a social “bar table” feeling and views over the street below. In order to maximise the natural light of the space, the owners of this home have […]

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 […]

Emirates Crown 5902 - 61

ABOVE THE CLOUDS

June 11, 2016

This penthouse in Emirates Crown in Dubai Marina is one of our favourite projects of all time. Designed by Marie Laurent Architecture, the home features carefully curated iconic designer furniture and art, as well as an incredible view over Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah. The open-plan design and natural light of the space enhances the natural beauty of the massive planks of […]

PATTERNED FLOORS: MIX & MATCH

May 17, 2016

This Fantastic Frank apartment in Stockholm, Sweden shows us how beautiful it is to combine wood floors with different patterns in a single space. Though we do not often recommend doing so, it can be both an interior design enhancement as well as a clever way to add more interest to the space. However, we do recommend […]

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. A beautifully designed, elegant apartment that looks perfectly polished in such tiny footprint can be a challenge, but not impossible. This home is all about giving attention to every single detail: a neutral palette of beiges and […]

OAK NOUVEAU BLACK

January 11, 2015

The wood floor in this apartment looks absolutely beautiful matched with classic, elegant and muted interiors. Kährs Oak Nouveau Black is a 1-strip floor that has been refined through brushing and black pigmenting, a matt lacquer finish and the creation of a distinctive bevel on all four edges. A floor that is as beautiful as it is easy to […]

DOME

January 5, 2015

Hello 2015! First blog post of the year, and we want to keep it fresh. For us, nothing conveys fresh more than some white wood flooring completed with classic/elegant interiors. And this apartment in Stockholm beautifully combines the two. Kährs Oak Dome is a 1-strip stained oak floor in a warm white tone. The long length of the board enhances the depth of […]

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 […]

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 […]

WEEKEND EYECANDY

October 16, 2014

So the weekend is upon us and we feel it’s high time for some eye candy! This duplex apartment in Stockholm, currently being represented by estate agents Wrede, is pure perfection in our eyes. We are in love with the understated grandeur of this beautiful space. The tones are muted, ceiling 5.5 m high and the windows […]

PIPERSGATAN 27A

October 1, 2014

This beautiful apartment is characterised by its generous ceiling height, modern stylish selection of materials and its cool industrial feel. The wood flooring has a strong focus, adding a soft yet rugged look, with each individual plank in full enhancement due to bevelled edges. Kährs Oak Nouveau Brown is a 1-strip floor in selected oak, treated with brown […]

LUNTMAKARGATAN 65

September 16, 2014

This recently renovated apartment in central Stockholm, represented by estate agents Eklund Stockholm New York (ESNY), has incorporated and enhanced details of the building’s original architecture from 1882 beautifully. The space feels rustic and original – while still looking fresh and modern – and the wood floor matches the space perfectly, keeping in line with the […]

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, […]

CONCRETE // WOOD

August 25, 2014

That concrete wall in the living room is everything! It gives the room a rough and industrial feeling, which contrasts nicely with the soft wooden floor, Kährs Casa – a rustic, handscraped natural Oak wood floor with impressive 2.8 meter long planks that contain knots, cracks and a comfortable handscraped surface. Images via Västanhem Mäkleri […]

NEW YORK STATE OF MIND

August 6, 2014

This spectacular penthouse located in the popular area of ​​Greenwich Village in Manhattan (New York City) offers a spectacular 550 sqm living area. The dark wood floor creates a beautiful contrast to the brightness of the large spaces, generating that beautiful elegance that only a dark wood floor can. We are big lovers of Kährs new floor Oak Nouveau […]

HATTAN

July 2, 2014

This majestic Hattan villa in The Lakes has a beautiful, airy feel with big bright windows and large open spaces.

Now offered with […]

THE ITALIAN JOB

This apartment in the luxurious Elite Residence tower in Dubai Marina has a breathtaking view over the Arabian Sea and carefully selected bespoke Italian furnishings. The home has an overall cool, masculine feel and the Kährs Oak Oyster wood floor adds a rustic touch as well as a softness to the crisp space. View more pictures of this home here. P.S. […]

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 […]

PYROMANIAC

February 25, 2014

When I was in elementary school in Sweden we had to participate in woodshop classes as part of our education (yep, DIY really is that important over there). And as a final exam, we had to compete in assembling the most complex piece of IKEA furniture in the shortest amount of time. Just kidding! Jokes aside, I was […]

GUEST POST | GREAT SPACES: ICONIC CHAIRS

January 6, 2014

Hello, everyone! It’s Mari here, with a guest post from Arcadian Home blog, a great place to find interior design inspiration for everything from beautiful mini pendant lights to warm and cozy rugs for the floor. Today’s post is about one of my favorite things in the world of design, iconic modern chairs. These enduring […]

PANORAMA

December 16, 2013

This apartment in The Fairways in The Greens district in Dubai not only has a breathtaking view over Emirates Golf Club and the towering skyscrapers of JLT and Dubai Marina in the horizon, but it also has incredibly beautiful, minimalistic interiors which we love. The focus in this home is to keep everything white and […]

THE QUAY TO LIFE

December 2, 2013

Last week we had the pleasure of photographing one of our clients’ homes – a beautiful apartment in the elegant Marina Quays. 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. Kährs Oak Nouveau Snow wood floor has a distinct white hue on a naturally colour varying oak, with defining white bevels and occasional white and darker […]

SIMPLICITY

September 15, 2013

This home has everything we love – white, smooth walls with soft oak wood flooring and a beautiful natural light that creates a stylish base with a large dose of both charm and interest. Overall a very clean and simple space with focus on the few, but beautiful furnishings (that copper Tom Dixon lamp + clear […]

A HOME WITH A TEAL TWIST

August 25, 2013

Ash: 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 have […]

BLACK COPPER

August 14, 2013

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 […]

WHITE AS SNOW

July 31, 2013

Yet another stunning home by the Swedish real estate agents Fantastic Frank. We are loving the elegant white wood floor, which serves as a perfect base for the home. Combining a white wood floor with white walls and fixtures makes the floor more subtle in its beauty, where it won’t overpower the remaining elements such […]

LEAVE YOUR SHOES AT THE DOOR

July 25, 2013

This beautiful home is part of an extremely modern complex in Stockholm by developers Oscar Properties. It is very modern, bright and equipped with top of the range appliances and finishes. We are especially loving the combination of white, clean lines with natural wood and stainless steel detailing, as well as the beautiful natural 1-strip […]

OSB + Oak

July 18, 2013

Here is one of those small apartments you dream about. At a mere 29 sqm, the use of the few square meters is completely optimal. We are especially loving the way raw OSB (oriented strand board) and oak are combined, especially on the stairscase. The architect has cleverly used OSB board to structure and optimize […]

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 […]

RICH JAVA

June 13, 2013

This glamorous apartment focuses on creating an open and social plan. With fully glazed sliding doors to the terrace and several windows, the apartment becomes very bright with natural light. Due to the brightness in the home, the dark wood floor stands out beautifully without darkening the space. Seeing how the natural light bounces off 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 […]

A SCANDINAVIAN CLASSIC: KÄHRS OAK SIENA

March 27, 2013

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 […]

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 […]

MINIMALISTIC ROCK ‘N’ ROLL

January 21, 2013

Inspired by the modern-day graphic gray, white and black decor, this home has a ultra-cool Rock & Roll theme – a cocky attitude and hot pink accents mixed up with warmer earth tones and soft textile components. As with any project, it’s always best to start off with the foundation/base. Freshen up your walls with […]

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. With such a beautiful wood floor, there is no need for much other than a clean base. For a […]

MOLTEN LAVA

December 31, 2012

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 […]

MUTED ELEGANCE

November 5, 2012

Give your home instant muted elegance with a white washed wood floor, such as Ash Skagen from Kährs Sand Collection. Ash Skagen combines the naturalness and liveliness of ash with the elegance and lightness of white matt lacquer. The white matt lacquer highlights the wood’s natural beauty, giving the whole floor a soft and pleasing […]

FINDING BALANCE

November 4, 2012

Natural wood elements add warmth and interest to a cool graphic or neutral colour palette. Don’t be afraid to combine different wood species for added depth. A rustic natural wood floor, combined with a contemporary and monochrome kitchen for balance – as seen in this Index Tower apartment in DIFC with Kährs Oak Oyster. Images […]

DARING TO BE DIFFERENT

October 15, 2012

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 […]

EARTHEN SOIL

October 9, 2012

All hail this beautiful converted post office apartment in Stockholm. This simply goes to show how a beautiful dark, rustic floor with shades of brown and black combined with a monochromatic furnishing is ultimately the most classic and elegant look you can go for. An interior scheme you (and your feet!) will never tire of! To […]

TRÈS, TRÈS CHIC

September 20, 2012

This absolutely gorgeous Mirador villa in Arabian Ranches is the ultimate representation of the romantic Shabby Chic style. The owners of this fabulous home couldn’t have selected a more suitable floor than Oak Danaborg by Kährs Craftsman Collection to bring all the beautiful, distressed and rustic/romantic furniture and decorative items together. What a great representation of […]

A REGAL HOME

August 2, 2012

This apartment in the Dubai Marina not only has a breathtaking view over the infamous Palm Jumeirah, but has an interior that is beautifully balanced between dramatic and harmonious with its classic-modern/European Renaissance decor. The stunning floor, Ash Gotland, just adds to its overall perfection – a better suited floor could not have been chosen for this home’s […]
