Old meets new and modern in this charming loft apartment. The already extremely bright space gets further enhanced with the white wood floor, clean lines, sheer curtains and minimal, monochrome furniture.
Kährs Oak Nouveau Snow wood floor has a distinct white hue on a naturally colour varying oak, with defining white bevels and occasional white and darker knots. The surface is brushed and matt lacquered to enhance the natural wood feeling. A classic and hardwearing wood floor that will last for generations.
This home has everything we love – white, smooth walls with soft oak wood flooring and a beautiful natural light that creates a stylish base with a large dose of both charm and interest. Overall a very clean and simple space with focus on the few, but beautiful furnishings (that copper Tom Dixon lamp + clear chairs + solid raw wood dining table combo is a definite winner in our eyes).
To get this look, opt for Oak Weimar from Kährs European Naturals Collection – a narrow 1-strip floor in selected Swedish oak. With bevelled edges, brushed surface and matt lacquered finish that gives maximum wood feeling.
When searching for interior design inspiration for kids rooms, it is highly likely that you’ll find most images show anything from timeless soft pastel to scandi-cool monochrome colour schemes, with one common denominator: wood flooring. There’s a reason for that. Natural wood flooring is absolutely the best kind of flooring you could choose for your little ones.
Now, for some facts. Natural wooden floors are one of the easiest ways to uplift a space – and they’re surprisingly child friendly. Just make sure you choose a wood with the right high-quality surface treatment. Kährs engineered wood floors are not only 75% more stable than solid wood flooring, but they also come pre-finished in Kährs factory in Sweden with four different treatments: high-gloss lacquer, silk matt lacquer, matt lacquer and nature oil – all are suitable for a family home. In addition, all surface treatments are solvent free.
Kährs wood floors are softer (and thereby safer) than stone flooring such as tile or marble, more hyper-allergenic than carpet, and on top of that extremely cozy and environmentally friendly. The installation procedure is quick and clean, meaning we don’t use any toxic adhesives or chemicals that could be potentially harmful to your children.
After all, with so many harmful environmental pollutants in our day-to-day lives, both in the foods we eat and our outdoor lives, it is comforting to know that a wood floor is completely natural, enabling you and your children to breathe easy at home everyday.

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 accent here and there creates a more homey feeling and adds freshness to the room.
Here is one of those small apartments you dream about. At a mere 29 sqm, the use of the few square meters is completely optimal. We are especially loving the way raw OSB (oriented strand board) and oak are combined, especially on the stairscase. The architect has cleverly used OSB board to structure and optimize the space, which still feels light and spacious despite the limited number of sqm.

All white.. everything.
The key to successfully designing a space in an all-white scheme is layering. By layering different materials, textures and shades of white together you essentially create depth, which is the biggest factor to consider in order to avoid the space falling flat and feeling clinical.
We are especially loving romantic boho-chic homes in pure white enriched with elegant wood textures, soft cottons and wools, luxurious lace and linens. It’s all in the details.
Here’s another example of how industrial elements with mute colours and raw organic materials such as cotton, wood and jute combine together beautifully to create visual magic.
This coffee shop in Barcelona, designed by INTSIGHT has a graphic look and highly textured feel that adds layers and in turn, a lot of intrigue – making this café a real hipster heaven.

This beautiful home built in 1898, but renovated in 2010/11, shows us yet again how beautiful a classic 3-strip oak floor is. And this particularly rustic floor gives a very elegant yet warm feel to the home.
Kährs Oak Moss is a 3-strip floor, treated with brown natural oil. Part of Kährs Harmony Collection, this floor is reminiscent of the comfort of home, with its warm, nurturing atmosphere. A place to retreat, awash with mellow tones that calm the body and soul. The subtle, rich tones of Kährs Harmony Collection are designed to complement all interior styles and to create a sense of well-being.
A colour between grey and beige, closely akin to taupe; Unfinished; not fully processed; neither bleached nor dyed.
The graphic black and white interiors that have been popular on a wide front for several seasons has gained major competition from “greige” interiors. This combination of soft grays and dirty beige earth tones, is romantic, timeless, whimsical and beautiful.
Pearl by Kährs Shine Collection is the perfect wood floor with its high-gloss, silver/pearl shimmer finish if you are looking to add a tasteful and contemporary kind of glamour to your greige interiors.
If the rustic kind of bold is more your thing, then our grandest wood floor Oak Espace by Kährs Grande Collection is the one for you. Not only is it beautifully smoked with heavy variations between grey and beige/brown tones, but it is also handscraped and contains knots and cracks for that true rustic feeling best experienced by bare feet.
