ARMY GREEN TREND

Sarah

We are loving the current army trend that’s been popular on the fashion scene this season. The various tones of olive green, in combination with other natural tones and small touches of metallic golden tones makes for a beautifully elegant combination. It is that perfect balance between those rustic, natural elements and the luxurious metallic textures that makes this interior design scheme beautiful, intriguing and appear effortless. A perfect mix of elegant and bohemian.

Select our natural Oak Camino by Kährs Artisan Collection as a rustic, handscraped and lively base for the interiors. The oiled surface, along with its texture, will add a natural fragrance to the interiors- reminiscent of the forest. Combine the floor with decor in army green, khaki, white, brown and black tones for a beautiful effect.

PATTERNED FLOORS: MIX & MATCH

Sarah

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 keeping the colour tone of the floors the same, or very similar. The reason for this is that by keeping a unanimous colour tone, you will add a sense of harmony and peace in the space.

This apartment contains two different wood flooring patterns – herringbone and Dutch. These two classic patterns create a sincerely elegant, effortless and timeless feeling in the apartment, and when combined, do so even more.

The oak wood floors are both stained and aged to a beautiful brown colour, which unites them, despite half the apartment being in one pattern and the other half in another. It’s that overall holistic feeling that is created that we love!

For a similar look, we recommend choosing our herringbone floor, Kährs Oak AB; and our Dutch-patterned floor, Kährs Oak Palazzo Rovere.

1920’S & HERRINGBONE FLOORS

Sarah

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 modern furniture that together establish a very modern and airy feel in the classic 1920’s apartment. Essentially, there is a perfect balance between the old and new- creating a beautiful sense of harmony in the space that is very desirable and beautiful.

To achieve the look, select our Kährs Oak AB wood flooring in a classic herringbone pattern. This wood floor is made from clean-grade oak with some colour variation and small knots with a matt finish. A perfect high-quality wood floor with a traditional and elegant look that we love.

OAK SOIL

Sarah

I recently read on Trendenser’s blog that a wood floor is like the shoes of a home, where – as in the world of fashion – your outfit isn’t complete without the right pair. That it doesn’t matter how nice you dress or decorate if you have the wrong pair of shoes – or wrong floor. I find the analogy to be really accurate, because without the right base, your home (our outfit for that matter!) will never really have an edited or composed look.

For example, this apartment in Stockholm, Sweden is a very simple home, with its beautiful crispy white walls, marble countertops, brass details and lots of natural light. But it is the dark wood floor that creates the warm base- a beautiful canvas that boosts the rest of the decor and interiors.

To get the look, we suggest our beautiful Kährs Oak Soil wood floor. This floor has deep brown nature oil patina that breathes history and elegance. Discover the floor here.

CATCHING UP WITH NATASHA

Sarah

We recently caught up with one of our clients, Natasha Singh, Senior Sales Consultant at House Hunters Dubai, to hear what she has to say about her experience with Nordic Homeworx and how she’s enjoying the Kährs Oak Oyster wood flooring in her family’s Arabian Ranches home.

Savannah Arabian Ranches 1

Q: How has your experience been with Nordic Homeworx?

A: We have had a great experience. Your team was great as well, especially your sales representative, Philipe. From the time we went to choose the flooring he was fabulous and very patient. We took a while to choose the floor and went back and forth many times. Your installation team was also perfect, your installation manager Jamil was great. Even later on we had a few issues and he came and sorted it out, actually even a year later. There aren’t many places you get this kind of customer service in Dubai. I recommend you to loads of friends, everyone who walks into this house falls in love with the flooring.

Q: Were you concerned about your dog when buying your floor?

A: Yes, some say pets will scratch the wood floors. We’ve had laminate flooring before, but we’ve never dealt with real wood flooring, so we were a little bit concerned seeing as the floor is an investment. But it is definitely suitable; very easy to maintain and we’ve had no issues with our dog at all. In fact, it’s nice because it has grains and grooves in it – it gives our dog a good grip to walk on. He loves it!

Q: What made you choose Kährs Oak Oyster in particular?

A: Our existing floor was a rosewood-coloured floor and we wanted something light to brighten up this house. Oak Oyster is absolutely beautiful. The older it gets, the colour changes for the good, and looks even more rustic and vintage. It’s in our bedrooms as well, and we’re really happy with it; it’s got a really good feel to it. We walk barefoot on the flooring and it just feels so good! It took us a bit of time to choose the floor because we thought we should go for a darker floor for upstairs. We like walnut too, so we brought planks home from the Nordic Homeworx showroom of both floors and sat with them for a week to help us decide. But then we went with the lighter one eventually and kept the same floor throughout the entire house for a more bright and streamlined feel.

In fact I had a client who wanted to sell her house, she was a friend as well, and she came over and just fell in love with our flooring. Eventually she said, “I’m not selling my home, I’m just going to put this flooring down and it will look fabulous!”

Q: Is there any aspects in particular that you think makes us stand out from other companies that you have dealt with during your renovations?

A: You guys definitely stand out in customer service. That’s something you don’t get very often in Dubai. We have a fair bit of experience because we have been living in Dubai for 14 years and have had a lot of renovations done in our house.

Nordic Homeworx and the people we dealt with, such as Philipe and Jamil, have been a real pleasure and so accommodating. Just great customer satisfaction including good after-sales, even a year later. That’s not what you expect from a lot of companies here. Definitely a big deal when you’re getting work done in your home.

Q: Did you find our installers were professional and respected your home?

A: Yes, we didn’t have to do anything. They brought the vacuum cleaner, cleaned, oiled and made sure everything was done to the highest standard. The team that was brought in really knew what they were doing. They were really professional and very fast. They even completed the installation faster than expected, which was excellent. The entire downstairs was laid out in three days, including the skirting. It was perfect!

Q: Seeing as you are in the real estate business, in your experience, do you feel that wood flooring increases the value of a house?

A: I definitely think so. The houses that I sold with wood flooring really got a very good price – not only because they present really well, but also because buyers can appreciate the fact that a flooring has been in the house for an extended amount of time and is still in really good condition. The wood floor also gives off an immediate homey feel to it, which is really inviting.

When I’ve taken clients to view houses, you can see they find a house with your wood flooring much more appealing than a house of the same style, look and layout without it. The moment they walk into a house with Kährs wood flooring, the client is always wowed by it.

MARBLE // WOOD

Sarah

Recently we’ve been feeling really inspired by smokey auburn-hued oak wood, swirly white marble, slate/black elements and brass accents to add a little bit of contrasting sheen against the other matte materials. This elegant combination creates the ultimate luxury feeling using only nature’s finest raw materials. Something that will never go out of style!

Kährs Oak Fredrik, by Kährs Founders Collection, is a true rustic wood floor where the surface is handcrafted and deeply brushed to enhance the beauty and specific characteristics of each and every board. It is smoked, which gives the floor a dark brown colour and big colour variations, and has a beautiful nature oiled surface that enhances the colour and grains, while giving off a beautifully mild oil scent that provides comfort.

STRANDVÄGEN 33

Sarah

This luxurious Eklund Stockholm New York-listed apartment located on Strandvägen 33 in the elite area of Östermalm in Stockholm is truly spectacular. From the beautiful patterned oak floors to the white leather Mezzo sofa by BoConcept, bright monochrome (and chrome) decor and details, high ceilings and large windows… The combination of all these elements creates both a timeless classic and a luxurious contemporary feel in the home.

The wood flooring in particular is magnificent and shows the versatility of the white-washed Oak AB White by Kährs Studio Collection, available via Nordic Homeworx wood flooring Dubai. Thanks to the smaller-sized individual planks, this floor can be laid in diverse patterns, as demonstrated in this Stockholm home where the same floor laid in a tiled/squared pattern as well as in a traditional herringbone pattern.

We love!

SOFT TONES // DARK FLOOR

Sarah

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 more information, contact Nordic Homeworx.

A PIED À TERRE AT THE PALM DUBAI

Sarah

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 greys with blue accents has been used throughout the space.

ikonic4ikonic8ikonic3

The oak wood introduced with Kährs Oak Olof, supplied and installed by Nordic Homeworx, is the dominant material in the space, to which stainless steel touches were added- an embrace of reflective, clear and metallic surfaces, a mix of light wood and walls with luxurious textures coupled with a big framed mirror used as a piece of artwork keeps the feeling light and airy and makes the entire space seem quite large.

With bespoke tailor made storage spaces and some beautiful, meticulously chosen furniture, this small space was successfully transformed into a beautiful cozy elegant pied-à-terre.

The big challenge was to create privacy in such a limited open space. ikonic by R&S‘s solution was to create a custom-made divider headboard beautifully layered with a matching wallpaper to divide the space in two separate area: a living/entertainment area, and a sleeping area. This not only creates extra space within the property but also create a “wow” effect when visitors discover a perfectly set bedroom behind the divider.

From the balanced floor plan and multiple sources of light to the large scale rug, the ikonic by R&S team proves that good interior design can make 568 sq. ft feel like million.

The space has been realised by Rim and Sywar, founders of www.ikonic-byrs.com (info@ikonic-byrs.com, www.ikonic-byrs.com).

THE LOFTS

Sarah

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.

Not only was the apartment impeccably designed and has the most impressive view of Burj Khalifa and Downtown Dubai that we’ve seen to date, but our beautiful Kährs Manor wood flooring was installed in all the private living spaces of the home! Kährs Manor is a rustic, white-washed and handscraped wood floor, with knots and cracks visible on its impressive 2.8 metre long planks.
