This apartment in Stockholm, Sweden is super inspirational! We especially love the minimalist kitchen with black cabinets and stainless steel accents, and the cozy eating area by the window with a social “bar table” feeling and views over the street below.
In order to maximise the natural light of the space, the owners of this home have not applied any heavy drapes or curtains to the windows, and have softened the quite angular and sharp-lined space with lots of natural green plants and textures.
Because the home has a relatively open-plan kitchen towards the living room – with minimal walls diving the two spaces – it is perfect that they have laid the same natural oak wood flooring, similar to our Kährs Oak Jersey wood floor, throughout the two rooms to create a continuous flow. Kährs Oak Jersey is a 1-strip floor in selected oak. The bevelled edges help to create a floor whose look and feel recall bygone days.
That’s it, we’ve officially fallen in interior-love. The amazing team behind Marie Laurent Architecture have done it once again- taken a proverbial “ugly duckling” (or in this case, standard-made apartment); stripped it down; built it up and turned it into the beautiful swan that is this designer-heaven-light-loving home.
We have worked with the Marie Laurent Architecture team in the the past, and were really excited to work with them on this apartment in Cayan Tower in Dubai Marina to create a beautiful bright and airy space with a cozy feel using our Kährs wood flooring.
Featuring endless amounts of quirky art, sleek Scandinavian furniture and minimalist decor, this home is the epitome of interior design done perfectly. Every aspect of this project has been carefully executed, each detail carefully curated. And of course there’s the juxtaposition of the rustic white-washed oak wood floor against all the modern, sleek furniture that we will always love.
The floor selected is our Oak Olof by Kährs Founders Collection. This floor is a true rustic product where the surface is handcrafted and deeply brushed to enhance the beauty and specific characteristics of each and every board. A white stain gives the floor a true white look.

This incredible apartment in Lyon, France features an earthy, neutral colour palette throughout the base as well as in the eclectic furnishings (well hello there gorgeous Eames armchair!) and art; and has three different patterns in the wood flooring – including a diamond, chevron and herringbone pattern – all in the same aged wood and colour. An incredibly interesting and beautiful combination that still manages to create a sense of harmony despite the many different elements.

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.

When I was in elementary school in Sweden we had to participate in woodshop classes as part of our education (yep, DIY really is that important over there). And as a final exam, we had to compete in assembling the most complex piece of IKEA furniture in the shortest amount of time. Just kidding!
Jokes aside, I was really happy to stumble upon this great DIY project that takes me back to those fun woodshop classes. My favourite tool was not the exhilarating saw machine or let-all-your-frustrations-out hammer, but the fantastically fun solid-tip burners (aka “glow pens”) that could burn/draw on wood.
These etched wooden spoons by Design Mom are a perfect example of how to transform something plain into an object of desire. Who knew wooden spoons could be so much fun? Text, designs or illustrations – follow your creative intuitions and burn away!
