Last week we visited our client’s apartment with our trusted partner Studio Zee for a photoshoot of their newly renovated home.

We are loving the updated take on walnut wood floors in this apartment in Stockholm, Sweden.

STARK CONTRASTS

November 23, 2016

We love all the little details in this home in Gothenburg, Sweden. Each corner and area has been well-planned and decorated, showcasing interesting details everywhere you look.

LOFT LOVE

August 29, 2016

We absolutely love the look of this loft apartment. Creating a loft feeling means keeping the decor fairly minimalist, while using diverse raw materials for a textural and tactile variety. Create contrasts with a common denominator – preferably selecting materials with a slight vintage essence to them that converted old factory spaces often have to them. The […]

Karlavagen OscarProperties 5

CLASSIC HOME

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 […]

SOFT TONES // DARK FLOOR

May 11, 2015

We’re loving the soft colours set against the dark wood floor in this apartment by Stadshem. The combination of different textures and neutral shades makes the interiors very interesting. The dark wood floor, Kährs Oak Lava, is a 3-strip floor with a brushed, black pigmented, matt lacquer finish. Kährs Oak Lava is currently available in stock in Dubai. For […]

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.

This home is all about giving attention to every single detail: a neutral palette of beiges and […]

THE LOFTS

January 19, 2015

Last week we visited our client’s stunning apartment in The Lofts, designed by the creative duo Zeina El Zein and Ina Vallarino of 2/1000/14 Interiors.

The wood floor in this apartment looks absolutely beautiful matched with classic, elegant and muted interiors.

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 […]

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. Minimal furniture classics such as the white IKEA Kallax shelving unit, organically shaped Noguchi coffee table, black Eames chairs and polished chrome Bertoia chairs, create an overall elegant yet effortless feeling to the home. Combined with the classic Kährs Oak Siena […]

We are in love with our client’s majestic Spanish style home in The Villa, Dubailand with a perfectly elegant and airy feel.

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.

TOAST SKAGEN

June 8, 2014

Du gamla, Du fria, Du fjällhöga nord. Du tysta, Du glädjerika sköna! This past Friday on June 6th, we celebrated the Swedish National Day. A national holiday that for many marks the beginning of summer. The national day for a Swede means longer days (with Midsummer just around the corner), the end of the school […]

FEMININA

June 2, 2014

This apartment represented by Fantastic Frank in central Stockholm is a beautiful portrayal of perfect feminine interiors. The home not only looks great, but also makes excellent use of the apartment’s small m2 space. Whenever you have a smaller home, it’s always a great idea to decorate in uniform, suave (e.g. pastel, nature) tones in order to visually de-clutter […]

THE ITALIAN JOB

May 26, 2014

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.

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 […]

METALLIC EASTER

April 20, 2014

We are loving Easter decor infused with copper and silver metallics – feels very on-trend for 2014. Select Kährs Black Copper or Kährs Black Silver for a truly unique statement floor that will add some everyday glam to your space. 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6  

SAND

March 11, 2014

This apartment in central Stockholm has a real tranquil quality that soothes our souls. And we’re especially loving the wood flooring, Ash Sandvig by Kährs Sand Collection. A light, exclusive 1-strip floor with nature’s own design with knots and a lively structure. A characteristic is its bi-colour pattern with a soft white matt lacquer. The darker core […]

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 […]

GIVE ME SPACE

January 8, 2014

This minimalistic apartment in Berlin, Germany is a real beauty. We love the high ceiling, neutral interiors and large windows, all adding to the overall airy feel. While the diverse areas are separated by walls, creating depth and intrigue, the neutral colour palette throughout enhances and ties this beautiful home together into one large space. […]

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 […]

MAD MEN

December 5, 2013

We LOVE this apartment’s masculine interpretation of 1950/60’s “Retro-Modern” style. A very hipster, yet glam feel, highly reminiscent of what is  seen in the hit TV series Mad Men (yes, we are currently imagining Mr. Draper deep in though, sitting in one of those armchairs). As you might know by now, our favourite combination is […]

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 […]

HARTFORD IN MY HEART

August 12, 2013

Walnut: a dark, medium hard wood species. The wood is straight grained and patchy. The heartwood is pale brown to dark chocolate in colour. Unlike most wood species, walnut turns lighter over the years and becomes golden brown. Seen in this simple yet cozy apartment that nods to a modern take on suave retro design (perhaps […]

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 […]

A TOUCH OF PRETTY

July 22, 2013

Soft pink tones are known to have a strong calming effect. In interior decoration, the soft pink color is often used for a romantic style, inspired by royal palaces and their beautiful environments. A colour scheme that goes in powdered pink, cool gray, soft cream, rich brown and a touch of shimmering gold evokes a classically luxurious yet […]

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 […]

LIVING NEUTRALS

July 18, 2013

Decorating in neutrals is beautiful but can also be hard to achieve. When working with neutral colors (gray, brown, white, beige), it is important to add plenty of living plants for a space to be balanced and not feel too flat. Green plants make any living room more welcoming. A green plant and a splash of green […]

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 […]

CLASSIC + CONTEMPORARY

July 3, 2013

This stylish apartment in Stockholm is a well-preserved property built in 1898, as seen by all the original details throughout the home. But what makes this home interesting is that it makes you do a double-take. The focus here isn’t on designer furniture, but rather on the architecture and its history – from the floors, […]

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 […]

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 […]

LIVING IN HARMONY

April 29, 2013

This beautiful home built in 1898, but renovated in 2010/11, shows us yet again how beautiful a classic 3-strip oak floor is. And this particularly rustic floor gives a very elegant yet warm feel to the home. Kährs Oak Moss is a 3-strip floor, treated with brown natural oil. Part of Kährs Harmony Collection, this floor is reminiscent of […]

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 CONTEMPORARY COUNTRYSIDE HOME

April 2, 2013

This beautiful countryside home in southern Sweden is a true inspiration of our favourite interior design scheme: fusing the rustic with the modern. The owners of this spaceous 500 sqm house have managed to beautifully combine wood floors in three different colours by keeping a common thread – the rustic, knotty finish – which makes […]

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. We sure wouldn’t mind having a view like that to wake up to everyday! Imagine sipping on your morning coffee […]

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 […]

RUSTIC MONOCHROME

February 12, 2013

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER

October 11, 2012

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