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, we’re loving the retro cool look for kids rooms. It is a really great concept where you combine old with new in a fun, hipster kind of way. Keep a clean base with white wood flooring (such as the always fresh-looking Oak Nouveau Snow by Kährs), crisp white walls and large furniture pieces in white, for the room to feel light and bright. Liven up the room with either a wallpaper in a retro-cool print, paint one of the walls in dusty pastel colours, or hang some fun posters and quirky quotes.
Someone who does retro cool perfectly is Riika from Weekday Carnival, she’s a great source of inspiration for kids rooms, and one of our favourite interior design blogs to read.
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.

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.
October is finally here and we’re already noticing a significant change in the atmosphere, with the clearer skies, shorter days and lower temperatures.
We are loving autumn’s naturally cooler, earthy and “dusted berry” tones that are famously associated with this time of year, a combination of hues that naturally create a sense of harmony.
Interested in making that cozy feeling permanent? Kährs Oak Slate wood floor has the perfect balance between blueish, gray and brown tones in a really rustic, smoked and handscraped finish, while Kährs Oak Nouveau Haze is a cleaner grade floor with a modern city look with its beautiful warm gray tone and white grains.

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 knots. The surface is brushed and matt lacquered to enhance the natural wood feeling. A classic and hardwearing wood floor that will last for generations.
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, to the walls, doors and ceiling details. However, this homeowner has also added a unique and creative twist to the majestic space, creating a beautiful juxtaposition between the classic and the contemporary details and showing us that less really is more.
The natural oak floor is suitable for those looking for a classic wood flooring that differs from the classic strips design. Oak Palazzo Rovere from Kährs European Renaissance Collection is a floor with the strips laid in a Dutch pattern. With its timeless design, silk matt lacquer surface finish and 30 year warranty, this floor will be sure to last for generations.
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 floors and shows off each and every plank’s grain, is a real treat. The bevelled edges further enhance each plank, adding to that exclusive look.
The pure white walls, natural light and dark wood floor create a beautiful and elegant combination and a perfect canvas for the rest of the exclusive furnishings.
To get this look, opt for Oak Java from Kährs American Traditionals Collection. Oak Java is a very rustic, dark toned product with its rich dark coffee colour. With microbevelled edges, a silk matt lacquer finish and clearly visible grains, the natural oak wood is beautifully enhanced in each plank.
