PALE-JANUARY-2018

ULTRA VIOLET

January 4, 2018

Pantone have announced their colour of the year fo 2018: Ultra Violet. A complex colour with lots of attitude and a high-tech/futuristic feel. It can be a little overwhelming to decorate with- so to create a light yet layered cosy feeling, we recommend combining a variety of violet shades with light creams, greys, whites and […]

AUTUMN 2016 TRENDS

September 21, 2016

This autumn is all about a modern take on vintage glam. We’ve been seeing a lot of vintage influences from the major fashion houses in the recent AW16 Fashion Week shows, influences ranging from the Elizabethan golden era, to the roaring 20’s, glam-luxe 70’s and all the way to the eclectic 90’s. As for interiors this autumn, […]

KAHRS VINGA LES BLEUS

LES BLEUS

August 11, 2016

We’re currently seeing an updated interpretation of 70’s retro-glam interiors with rich petrol blues and golden accents juxtaposed with materials and textures in cold neutral tones. For example, the combination of a petrol-blue velour sofa with brass legs, a greige wood floor, crispy white walls and gold deco details. To achieve the look, select Kährs Vinga by our new Götaland […]

BLACK // WHITE // BRASS

July 22, 2014

There’s something about the tiniest bit of brass that instantly makes a space more interesting. Especially spaces with lots of matte white and black surfaces; small amounts gold add a lived-in and sophisticated quality. 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9  

METALLIC EASTER

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 […]

NORDIC GLAM

November 5, 2013

Add everyday glam to your space by adding gold accents to monochromatic white, grey and black colour scheme. By creating a crisp white base with natural wood flooring and the golden accents to a minimal, you will have less of a nouveau riche, and more of a timeless nordic glamour feel in your space. Cozy it up with Oak […]

BLACK COPPER
