Similar to what we see in the world of fashion, good interior design is best accomplished when combining odd vintage, high street and designer pieces. And today we’re feeling inspired by what we consider to be a classic, simplistic, Nordic-glam kind of interior. The kind of interior that is harmonious, cozy and stylish all at once.
So the weekend is upon us and we feel it’s high time for some eye candy! This duplex apartment in Stockholm, currently being represented by estate agents Wrede, is pure perfection in our eyes. We are in love with the understated grandeur of this beautiful space. The tones are muted, ceiling 5.5 m high and the windows are large, allowing plenty of natural light in. This whole space exudes freshness, industrial modernity and pure elegance. The wood flooring is a simple, natural oak 1-strip floor with naturally occurring knots and colour variation.

That concrete wall in the living room is everything! It gives the room a rough and industrial feeling, which contrasts nicely with the soft wooden floor, Kährs Casa – a rustic, handscraped natural Oak wood floor with impressive 2.8 meter long planks that contain knots, cracks and a comfortable handscraped surface.

Well hello inspiration! How amazing is this Scandinavian-inspired home in Melbourne, Australia?
A beautiful demonstration of the symbiosis of raw nature materials, achieving perfect harmony within a space. Blacks, grays, whites and natural wood make this a perfect example of what can only be described as a Scandi-contemporary take on rustic.
To get this look, keep your colours to a minimum and select Casa by Kährs Grande Collection for your base. Casa is a majestic floor with 2.8 metre long planks and a rustic, handscraped surface that contains knots and cracks.
Decorate with whites, pastels and neutrals for a warm, modern and welcoming home. A combination of mild pastels, neutral earth tones and neon pops of colour will add interest to any white base. A winning combination, for sure!
Keep your base white, starting with your wood flooring! Select Kährs Oak Crème for a more rustic look with its distinct white hue on a naturally colour varying oak; or opt for Kährs Opaque for a sleek, contemporary look with its white semi-transparent stain and a high gloss lacquer.
Cooler temperatures, shorter days, rain, cloudy skies and fresh air.. It’s been a long, humid summer and we are thoroughly enjoying the lovely weather we are having at the moment.
Winter is coming, so snuggle up on your sofa with a comfy throw, a good book and a hot cup of tea/coffee/cocoa and imagine it’s snowing outside (perhaps with a little help of your AC) and begin dreaming about possibly the most festive month that lies ahead of us: December!
However, there’s one thing I strongly believe in when it comes to interiors, and it is that dark does not have to mean cozy. I say, opt for lighter neutral colours ranging from the purest white to patina brown tones for a cozy Scandinavian winter feel in your home (after all, they do know a thing or two about winter). By keeping the colour scheme neutral but adding different textures and tones, you will create depth and warmth, and in turn, coziness. Yes, layering is equal to warmth, even in interiors.
Combine a natural light wood floor (Kährs Ash Sandvig radiates Scandichic), sheepskin (available at e.g. IKEA), knit throws (Pottery Barn has a great selection), fluffy cushions and perhaps the most important element: mood lighting. My tip? Do yourself a favour and disconnect your ceiling lights. Invest in floor lamps, table lamps and lots of candles to create a cozy and relaxing atmosphere in your home.
