BEFORE AND AFTER

May 14, 2017

Last week we visited our client’s apartment with our trusted partner Studio Zee for a photoshoot of their newly renovated home. We had been to the apartment back in November 2016, before renovations began, in order to get some before shots – and we are so happy we did because what a transformation it was! Here are a […]

DEWY DELIGHTS

August 31, 2016

We are feeling really inspired by soft and lustrous nude tones in interiors; the combination of pale pinks, beiges, greys and whites. Airy linens and cottons juxtaposed with the roughness of wood and stone; creating a romantic, harmonious and timeless interior that has a cozy layered feeling. The perfect floor to complete the romantic look is our next Floor of the Month, Kährs Oak […]

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.

CLASSIC HOME

August 17, 2016

This apartment by Oscar Properties in Stockholm has classically elegant interiors that we love. The interiors are a combination of traditional and modern Scandinavian classics with lots of brass, copper and wood elements; and a muted colour scheme with white, grey, black, beige and brown as the base.

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 […]

MINIMALIST CHARM

July 14, 2016

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 […]

MODERN-TROPICANA

URBAN TROPICANA

July 13, 2016

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 […]

CLEAN LINES & GREY TONES

June 22, 2016

We absolutely love this home in Gothenburg, Sweden with its clean lines and airy feel. We especially love the clean colour scheme of this home, where it’s almost as though the full greyscale tones have been utilised – ranging from whites, to soft greiges (i.e. the combo of gray and beige), to dark slates and nearly-black […]

ARMY GREEN TREND

May 21, 2016

We are loving the current army trend that’s been popular on the fashion scene this season. The various tones of olive green, in combination with other natural tones and small touches of metallic golden tones makes for a beautifully elegant combination. It is that perfect balance between those rustic, natural elements and the luxurious metallic textures that makes this interior […]

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 […]

MARBLE // WOOD

August 4, 2015

Recently we’ve been feeling really inspired by smokey auburn-hued oak wood, swirly white marble, slate/black elements and brass accents to add a little bit of contrasting sheen against the other matte materials. This elegant combination creates the ultimate luxury feeling using only nature’s finest raw materials. Something that will never go out of style! Kährs Oak Fredrik, by Kährs Founders Collection, is a true […]

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 […]

A PIED À TERRE AT THE PALM DUBAI

March 8, 2015

In this coastal style pied-à-terre, it is proven that you don’t have to sacrifice sophistication and glamour to live small. A beautifully designed, elegant apartment that looks perfectly polished in such tiny footprint can be a challenge, but not impossible. This home is all about giving attention to every single detail: a neutral palette of beiges and […]

THE LOFTS

January 19, 2015

Last week we visited our client’s stunning apartment in The Lofts, designed by the creative duo Zeina El Zein and Ina Vallarino of 2/1000/14 Interiors. Not only was the apartment impeccably designed and has the most impressive view of Burj Khalifa and Downtown Dubai that we’ve seen to date, but our beautiful Kährs Manor wood flooring was installed in all the […]

January 11, 2015

The wood floor in this apartment looks absolutely beautiful matched with classic, elegant and muted interiors. Kährs Oak Nouveau Black is a 1-strip floor that has been refined through brushing and black pigmenting, a matt lacquer finish and the creation of a distinctive bevel on all four edges. A floor that is as beautiful as it is easy to […]

DOME

January 5, 2015

Hello 2015! First blog post of the year, and we want to keep it fresh. For us, nothing conveys fresh more than some white wood flooring completed with classic/elegant interiors. And this apartment in Stockholm beautifully combines the two. Kährs Oak Dome is a 1-strip stained oak floor in a warm white tone. The long length of the board enhances the depth of […]

WALNUT MONTREAL

December 29, 2014

You know by now that we love the combination of white walls, white doors and white skirting set against wood floor. And this renovated apartment in Gothenburg is a great example of how natural walnut flooring in particular conveys a true sense of luxury and cosiness in a home. Kährs Walnut Montreal is a 3-strip walnut wood floor […]

RELIABILITY IS KEY

November 24, 2014

We’re always happy when we come across beautiful, simplistic homes that feature a classic 3-strip wood floor made from natural oak. And you must know by now that our favourite go-to wood floor is Kährs Oak Siena; a classic floor with strips selected to provide a calm appearance but still with certain degree of variation in the grain.

This apartment represented by Fantastic Frank in central Stockholm is a beautiful portrayal of perfect feminine interiors. The home not only looks great, but also makes excellent use of the apartment’s small m2 space. Whenever you have a smaller home, it’s always a great idea to decorate in uniform, suave (e.g. pastel, nature) tones in order to visually de-clutter […]

This apartment in the luxurious Elite Residence tower in Dubai Marina has a breathtaking view over the Arabian Sea and carefully selected bespoke Italian furnishings.

It’s not everyday that one comes across a home with Hard Maple wood floors. We are especially loving seeing it in this home. The interiors are a perfect balance of what can only be described as a mix of circus-esque quirk and classic elegance that is really refreshing to see. And the clean grade of […]

PASTELS

April 6, 2014

Decorate with whites, pastels and neutrals for a warm, modern and welcoming home. A combination of mild pastels, neutral earth tones and neon pops of colour will add interest to any white base. A winning combination, for sure! Keep your base white, starting with your wood flooring! Select Kährs Oak Crème for a more rustic […]

SAND

March 11, 2014

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 […]

URBAN TROPIC

February 10, 2014

The first thought that came to mind when seeing this one-bedroom apartment in central Stockholm was: urban tropic. That’s how I feel is the best way to describe the style of this funky home. What makes this home so interesting is that there is a clear mix of vibrant classic caribbean colours (the wallpaper behind the […]

RETRO COOL KIDS

February 3, 2014

Your child’s room is their space to grow, discover and inspire creativity. But that does not mean that every square inch of your child’s room should necessarily be filled up with colourful objects. Too. Much. Information. Remember, less is more! Create a clean base where some colour can then be added in a strategic and harmonious way. For example, […]

GIVE ME SPACE

January 8, 2014

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. […]

MAD MEN

December 5, 2013

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 […]

WHITE DOVE

September 26, 2013

Old meets new and modern in this charming loft apartment. The already extremely bright space gets further enhanced with the white wood floor, clean lines, sheer curtains and minimal, monochrome furniture. Kährs Oak Nouveau Snow wood floor has a distinct white hue on a naturally colour varying oak, with defining white bevels and occasional white and darker […]

CLASSIC + CONTEMPORARY

July 3, 2013

This stylish apartment in Stockholm is a well-preserved property built in 1898, as seen by all the original details throughout the home. But what makes this home interesting is that it makes you do a double-take. The focus here isn’t on designer furniture, but rather on the architecture and its history – from the floors, […]

RICH JAVA

June 13, 2013

This glamorous apartment focuses on creating an open and social plan. With fully glazed sliding doors to the terrace and several windows, the apartment becomes very bright with natural light. Due to the brightness in the home, the dark wood floor stands out beautifully without darkening the space. Seeing how the natural light bounces off the […]
