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.

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.

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 out the stark contrast of vibrant hues. White allows you to draw back to your inner calm.
Kährs Ash Blizzard is a purely white stained wood floor with microbevelling to enhance and define each plank, creating a luxurious look and feel.
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 evoke happiness and inspiration from your child.
Du gamla, Du fria, Du fjällhöga nord. Du tysta, Du glädjerika sköna!
This past Friday on June 6th, we celebrated the Swedish National Day. A national holiday that for many marks the beginning of summer. The national day for a Swede means longer days (with Midsummer just around the corner), the end of the school year and pre-vacation excitement.
In Sweden it is custom to eat a dish called toast Skagen, primarily in summer. Named after a fishing port at the northern tip of Denmark, toast Skagen is typically served as a starter at Swedish dinner parties. It was created by the popular Swedish restaurateur Tore Wretman. For the recipe and to learn more more about toast Skagen, click here.
With the delicious dish fresh in our memories (and tastebuds) from this past weekend’s celebration, we’re feeling inspired by this beautiful home in Värmdö in Stockholm’s archipelago. The beautiful 3-strip Kährs Ash Skagen wood floor combines the naturalness and liveliness of ash with the elegance and lightness of white matt lacquer. The white matt lacquer highlights the wood’s natural beauty, giving the whole floor a soft and pleasing finish.

This apartment in central Stockholm has a real tranquil quality that soothes our souls. And we’re especially loving the wood flooring, Ash Sandvig by Kährs Sand Collection.
A light, exclusive 1-strip floor with nature’s own design with knots and a lively structure. A characteristic is its bi-colour pattern with a soft white matt lacquer. The darker core in ash creates fantastic patterns and makes this a very special floor.

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.
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.
