TOUCH OF GREEN

Sarah

This apartment in Stockholm features a beautiful colour scheme of dark brown, greens and white with touches of brass details. This combination creates a timeless interior with a calm and soothing atmosphere.

To achieve this look, we suggest Kährs Oak Lava wood flooring – a 3-strip floor with a brushed, brown/black pigment and matt lacquer finish. Available in stock in Dubai.

WINTER IS COMING

Sarah

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.

[ASH]

Sarah

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. Some of Kährs Ash floors have strong color variations that really bring them to life.

This cozy villa incorporates classic Scandinavian 1-strip Ash wood flooring with impressive ceiling heights, graphic Moroccan tiles, sleek &tradition stools, a large dining area and an overall rugged-yet-contemporary style to the home.

On the first floor, we find Ash Sandvig – a light, exclusive 1-strip floor. Nature’s own design with knots and a lively structure. A characteristic is its bi-colour pattern with a soft white matt lacquer, giving the otherwise rustic-looking floor a contemporary and airy feel.

On the second floor we find a very similar, yet different 1-strip Ash wood floor. Ash Gotland makes a bold statement and gives a warm and cozy feel to the more private family space upstairs with its darker core that creates fantastic patterns.

Though these two Ash wood floors are very similar and harmoniously create a common theme throughout the home, the finish is what differentiates them not only in appearances, but on the overall affect they will have on a space. Brilliant!
