//BREATHE//

Sarah

When in doubt about combining colours, I always say it’s best to look to nature for inspiration. And why shouldn’t we? After all, nature is associated with harmony for a reason. Vibrant, manmade colours might be great for accents, but for a base that you will never tire of and that will certainly never go out of style, nature’s own colour schemes (and textures) are truly the best, and most sustainable, source of inspiration.

Combining soft greys, dusty-olive greens and rich cocoa brown patinas for your base, you will create a classically elegant combination that will definitely bring harmony to your home. Depending on your personal style, you can calibrate the masculine-to-feminine feel to this colour scheme – the key lies entirely in the finishing touches.

A beautiful wood floor such as Oak Ulf by Kährs Founders Collection is the perfect tone of olive/grey/brown. Handcrafted and deeply brushed to enhance the beauty and specific characteristics of each and every board.

GIVE ME SPACE

Sarah

This minimalistic apartment in Berlin, Germany is a real beauty. We love the high ceiling, neutral interiors and large windows, all adding to the overall airy feel. While the diverse areas are separated by walls, creating depth and intrigue, the neutral colour palette throughout enhances and ties this beautiful home together into one large space.

The “greige” (a cross between grey and beige) colour of the wood floor is very modern and creates a very cool, contemporary feel. The wide and long planks also elongate and enhance the room. Select Kährs Espace Oak, a floor with 2.8 meter long planks, smooth handscraping and a whole lot of grandeur that both looks and feels heavenly underfoot.

PANORAMA

Sarah

This apartment in The Fairways in The Greens district in Dubai not only has a breathtaking view over Emirates Golf Club and the towering skyscrapers of JLT and Dubai Marina in the horizon, but it also has incredibly beautiful, minimalistic interiors which we love.

The focus in this home is to keep everything white and bright and focus on the panoramic views, with the element of surprise seen in quirky and fun details such as the transparent Ghost chairs and vintage neon sign and candy dispenser salvaged from a flea market in the United States.

There was no doubt that Kährs Arctic Oak wood flooring was the perfect match with its white stained, rustic 1-strip design. Yet another great example of how a rustic floor perfectly complements and balances out contemporary interiors.

MAD MEN

Sarah

We LOVE this apartment’s masculine interpretation of 1950/60’s “Retro-Modern” style. A very hipster, yet glam feel, highly reminiscent of what is  seen in the hit TV series Mad Men (yes, we are currently imagining Mr. Draper deep in though, sitting in one of those armchairs).

As you might know by now, our favourite combination is black + white + wood, so this apartment definitely scores high in our books. By keeping the palette basic, and focusing on creating depth and interest with diverse textures/textiles and decorative objects, this home has an beautiful and timeless elegance to it.

To achieve this look, opt for Kährs Oak Nouveau Charcoal, a 2-strip wood floor with a brushed, black pigmented, matt lacquer finish. Bevelled 4-sided to create the effect of a beautiful 1-strip plank.

NORDIC GLAM

Sarah

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 Valois by Kährs Heritage Collection with its pale golden hue or go clean-and-crisp white with Ash Alabaster by Kährs Harmony Collection.

HARTFORD IN MY HEART

Sarah

Walnut: a dark, medium hard wood species. The wood is straight grained and patchy. The heartwood is pale brown to dark chocolate in colour. Unlike most wood species, walnut turns lighter over the years and becomes golden brown.

Seen in this simple yet cozy apartment that nods to a modern take on suave retro design (perhaps even slightly reminiscent of a Mad Men-esque era). We love the combination of monochromatic and wood furniture, gold/silver details and a rich walnut wood floor, such as Kährs 3-strip Walnut Hartford – a dark brown floor with natural variations in colour and structure resulting in beautiful depth.
