THE RAMADAN EDIT

May 7, 2019

In the spirit of Ramadan, we are feeling inspired by the true harmony that the holy month brings. Ramadan is a time to reflect and meditate, to appreciate and come together with family and friends. It’s a time to really slow down, with many people gravitating towards staying even more in the comfort of their own homes- gathering […]

DINA FÄRGER VAR BLÅ

July 4, 2017

We’re currently having Swedish singer Tommy Nilsson’s hit “Dina Färger Var Blå” (a classic summer song) on repeat, dreaming of the beautiful Swedish summer! And one of the most iconic summer spots in Sweden is the beautiful island Gotland, known for its medieval architecture, rugged beaches with azure waters lapping the shoreline, sand dunes and mile upon mile of beach […]

AUTUMN LEAVES

November 10, 2014

Temperatures are rapidly dropping here in Dubai, and we can’t help but get a little more excited about the cooler climate and all the cosy festivities happening this season. Interior design bible Elle Decoration has stated that this autumn is all about “feathers and bold patterns combined in a wide range of shades such as soil, chestnut and rust mixed with metallic shimmering copper, gold […]

LUNTMAKARGATAN 65

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.

[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 […]

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 […]

SUMMER RED

June 10, 2013

As we accelerate into “Summer 2013” mode, we are feeling inspired by the famous Scandinavian summer cottages typically seen by the sea coast. Combining red and white is not only extremely classic and elegant, but also timeless and cozy. Combine red and white hues with a whitewashed rustic oak floor such as Oak Oyster for […]

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 […]

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 […]

THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER

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

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 […]
