Absolute love for the beautiful Yvonne Koné store in Copenhagen, Denmark ? Yvonne Koné’s store is so perfectly clean and elegant.

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 […]

PASTEL NURSERY

June 15, 2016

Nursery rooms are very intimate spaces, a space where your children can wind down to rest, first place they wake up, a place where play and use their imagination.

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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.

Exuberating the kind of warmth and coziness that […]

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 […]

We have seen some really prestigious and beautiful projects here in Dubai, but few do it as well as Viktor Udzenija.

FINDING THE SILVER LINING

December 6, 2012

Silver is a beautiful metallic colour that adds interest to any object, including a wood floor. So it comes as no surprise that one of our favourites from Kährs Shine Collection is the striking floor, Black Silver – a 1-strip ash, black stain with silver metallic in the pores. Combine silver, black and brown tones with unbleached linen, white […]

EXPERIENCE THE EAST

December 4, 2012

Kährs wood floors don’t just have to be installed on the floor. Kährs wood flooring was recently installed at the new Asia Republic restaurant located at the majestic Atlantis The Palm Hotel & Resort – but instead of putting the wood on the floor, the walls and ceiling were clad with Oak Ember from Kährs Harmony […]

SCANDIMERICAN

September 9, 2012

Walnut flooring is often associated with New York’s Upper East Side classic style of interior setting which is very beautiful in itself, but after seeing these incredibly inspirational images by Hitta Hem, we are shown how to “untraditionally” combine Scandinavian urban minimalism with the ultimate American wood floor classic in a revolutionary new style, which […]

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL

August 15, 2012

I was just flipping through the latest issue of InsideOut magazine, when I came across Natuzzi‘s advertisement with the slogan “Benvenuti a casa/Welcome home.” Naturally, as we are in the wood flooring business, my eyes shot straight down to the black floor in the picture (and then to the furniture, of course). So I decided […]
