We’ve talked about our love of Moroccan architecture, interior design and decor items before, but now we want to talk about how to incorporate Morocco’s famous creative blend of African, Arab and Mediterranean decorating style into a contemporary Scandinavian interior.
Scandinavian design is most recognisable for its bright, white, monochromatic, less-is-more scheme. But to create more depth, interest and a cozy bohemian feel in the space, add ethnic Moroccan motifs and decoration patterns with decorative items in a muted colour scheme to match the airy Scandinavian feel. Stick to neutral, earthy tones such as white, grey, brown and cream. Incorporate beautiful signature Moroccan decorative items such as beautifully handcrafted metallic lamps and lanterns, leather pouffes, the famous handira wedding blanket and Beni Ourain rug, a luxurious wool pompom blanket– the list goes on.
We suggest balancing out the bright look with a luxurious walnut wood floor such as Kährs Walnut Vermont– a dark floor with a natural, lively grade which contains knots and colour variation. The softness of the wood, combined with the golden-brown tones of the walnut will create a warm look and feel underfoot.
We love the timeless and luxurious Moroccan style, and we love the Scandinavian sleek look – so why not combine the two to create an even more beautiful space?
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.
