Love the classic-minimalist, scaled-back look of this Stockholm apartment with focus on the gorgeous stained oak wood floor in a classic herringbone pattern. Absolute beauty! ✨

This lofty apartment in Stockholm by Historiska Hem boasts big windows and an industrial feeling that we love. The deco has been kept minimalist but with plenty of vintage elements. The home is cozy despite its bare, industrial base, with the help of the white-washed wood floor and a combination of textures, giving a very homey and comfortable feeling to the space.
To achieve a similar look, we suggest our beautiful Oak Paris wood floor by Kährs Capital Collection. Only the finest oak is selected for this exclusive 1-strip/plank floor, and the natural wood characteristics are enhanced by brushing and microbevelled edges, and a slight white-washed surface.

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 key, however, lies in the foundations- meaning the floor, the walls, the influx of natural light as well as the overall architecture and working around these to create an authentic loft feeling. Kährs Vedbo (pictured) has a natural oak colour with enhanced contrast and warmth; and golden tones from honey and ripe rye during harvest time.
We suggest combining the rustic Kährs Vedbo wood flooring with a White Brick wallpaper by Mr Perswall (D.Tales), a funky Molecular Pendant Lamp by House Doctor (The Bowery Company), and other neutral furniture and decor. Allow for pops of colour – in limited quantities – displayed in artwork, such as pop-artsy posters (Gallery One).
A great general tip for artwork is to invest in some nice frames with real glass. Light will beautifully reflect off the glass, increasing the sense of space and light while showcasing and enhancing the art displayed. You may also choose to leave your frames on the floor rather than hanging them on the walls- leaning them casually against a wall and stacked one in front of the other.
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 Collection: a floor where the light cold grey stain appears to have been worn down, revealing the natural oak base.
Have you heard about the magical and enchanting Treehotel in the woodlands of Harads in northern Sweden? Located a mere 50 km south of the Arctic Circle, this hotel offers tree-cabins with a contemporary design in the middle of the unspoiled northern Swedish nature with impressive vistas as far as the eye can see.
One of the cabins, The Dragonfly, offers big panoramic windows with a magnificent view of the valley. The cabin, designed by Rintala Eggertsson Architects, is built out of wood, with an exterior made out of sheet metal that will eventually turn rust-brown and blend in even further with the pine-tree forest. The Dragonfly cabin features our very own pitch-black Kährs Oak Nouveau Charcoal wood flooring.

This apartment in Stockholm, Sweden is super inspirational! We especially love the minimalist kitchen with black cabinets and stainless steel accents, and the cozy eating area by the window with a social “bar table” feeling and views over the street below.
In order to maximise the natural light of the space, the owners of this home have not applied any heavy drapes or curtains to the windows, and have softened the quite angular and sharp-lined space with lots of natural green plants and textures.
Because the home has a relatively open-plan kitchen towards the living room – with minimal walls diving the two spaces – it is perfect that they have laid the same natural oak wood flooring, similar to our Kährs Oak Jersey wood floor, throughout the two rooms to create a continuous flow. Kährs Oak Jersey is a 1-strip floor in selected oak. The bevelled edges help to create a floor whose look and feel recall bygone days.
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 the the past, and were really excited to work with them on this apartment in Cayan Tower in Dubai Marina to create a beautiful bright and airy space with a cozy feel using our Kährs wood flooring.
Featuring endless amounts of quirky art, sleek Scandinavian furniture and minimalist decor, this home is the epitome of interior design done perfectly. Every aspect of this project has been carefully executed, each detail carefully curated. And of course there’s the juxtaposition of the rustic white-washed oak wood floor against all the modern, sleek furniture that we will always love.
The floor selected is our Oak Olof by Kährs Founders Collection. This floor is a true rustic product where the surface is handcrafted and deeply brushed to enhance the beauty and specific characteristics of each and every board. A white stain gives the floor a true white look.

Living in Dubai, we’re fortunate to be in a part of the world that lies between beautiful tropical jungles and cultured urban cities. So why not reflect a combination of both styles in our homes?
We’re currently feeling inspired by tropical greens with a clean and minimalistic urban twist. We suggest updating the typical tropical deco by combining our pure white Kährs Ash Alabaster wood flooring with large green leafy plants, white linen and cotton furniture and small green marble accents; as well as an abundance of neutral tones, natural light and large open spaces to maintain that bright, airy and tropical holiday feeling.
A perfect combination creating that urban tropicana vibe.
Further to our last post featuring the inspiration mood board for this home’s bright dining room, we wanted to share some more images of this beautiful and effortless loft apartment in Kungsholmen in Stockholm, Sweden.
The brightness of the space, in combination with the minimalist monochrome decor, makes for a timeless and elegant look. And we love the white-washed herringbone oak wood floors.
Select our Kährs Oak AB White wood flooring to achieve the look!

We love this minimalist dining room in Stockholm, Sweden. Everything from the custom open shelves, the white-washed herringbone patterned oak wood floors, colour scheme and brightness of the space all make for an elegant, airy and “minimalistically” beautiful family dining room.
