Neo mint is a gender-neutral colour with an oxygenating, fresh tone that aligns science and technology with nature.

Loving the combination of blush tones and a lively 3-strip ash wood flooring in this apartment via Alvhem ? For a similar look, we suggest combining Jotun’s Warm Blush (2856) wall colour with our 3-strip Kährs Ash Skagen wood flooring. Images via Alvhem & Kährs

VINTAGE DECO

August 30, 2016

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 […]

NEW METALLICS

April 14, 2016

Metallics are really on trend for Spring 2016, as seen on the international fashion runways and in fashion stores. For example, Spanish brand Mango just released a new campaign called “New Metallics” starring supermodel Karlie Kloss that we’re loving, featuring lots of metallic shine, layers and texture. Swedish fashion-house Acne has also released a metallic silver version of […]

BLANCHE

June 8, 2015

Blanche. White. Hvid. Vit. It comes as no surprise that white is known as the universal colour of peace and purity. Nor that it projects cleanliness and neutrality. White is wonderful, and always adore seeing it in the design world, whether if it is kept as solid colour scheme in a space, or used to neutralise and balance […]

VINTAGE FLOWER CHILD

June 15, 2014

Decorate your child’s room with dusted pink florals set against a clean white contrast (e.g. a crisp white wood floor like Kährs Ash Alabaster) to create a calm, vintage and nostalgic feeling in the space. Decorating in this romantic neo-floral bohemian style is not only very on-trend and cool; it is also a design scheme that is guaranteed to […]

WINTER IS COMING

November 26, 2013

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 […]

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 […]

A HOME WITH A TEAL TWIST

August 25, 2013

Ash: a strong, hard wood species, even harder than Oak. This wood species is pale in a typical Scandinavian way with fine, brown streaks and few discreet knots. It has a relatively long grain and ambers over the years. Ash is used to make tools, wood flooring and furniture. Some of Kährs Ash floors have […]

WELCOME TO SCANDIWOOD

July 15, 2013

Something important to keep in mind when designing a space is the kind of style you want to portray. For instance, a light wood floor immediately makes for a more sleek, fresh and Scandinavian style. Darker wood on the other hand, makes for a more colonial and elegant feel, while cherry or redder woods generally make […]

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY

July 7, 2013

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 […]

NUDE MOOD

FINDING THE SILVER LINING

December 6, 2012

Silver is a beautiful metallic colour that adds interest to any object, including a wood floor. So it comes as no surprise that one of our favourites from Kährs Shine Collection is the striking floor, Black Silver – a 1-strip ash, black stain with silver metallic in the pores. Combine silver, black and brown tones with unbleached linen, white […]

MUTED ELEGANCE

November 5, 2012

Give your home instant muted elegance with a white washed wood floor, such as Ash Skagen from Kährs Sand Collection. Ash Skagen combines the naturalness and liveliness of ash with the elegance and lightness of white matt lacquer.

Oh, how we love these unique wall hooks by Muuto. “THE DOTS” are made entirely of first class oak or stained ash and are just as functional as they are beautiful as wall decoration. “This characterful little family of hooks is a friendly addition to any wall. The Dots are proud of their round edges […]

ASH, NOT SO ASHEN

August 26, 2012

Ash is a strong, hard wood species, even harder than Oak. This wood species is pale in a typical Scandinavian way with fine, brown streaks and few discreet knots. It has a relatively long grain and ambers over the years. Ash is used to make tools, wood flooring and furniture. According to Norse mythology, Odin – […]
