FEELING FESTIVE

Sarah

We welcome December with open arms- it’s our favourite time of the year! A truly festive month filled with joyful events, gatherings and celebrations. With the weather cooling right down, we are entering the most pleasant season in Dubai.

Inspired by the rich tone of our current Floor of the MonthKährs Oak Lava – we are opting for more dark yet scaled back, neutral and minimalist decor for the festive season this year, inspired by the deep dark Swedish forests.

We are loving all combinations of earthy tones including brown, black, grey and green in natural materials such as wood, jute, linen, cotton and wool – enhanced by scents of spruce, cinnamon, cloves and vanilla.

TREEHOTEL

Sarah

Have you heard about the magical and enchanting Treehotel in the woodlands of Harads in northern Sweden? Located a mere 50 km south of the Arctic Circle, this hotel offers tree-cabins with a contemporary design in the middle of the unspoiled northern Swedish nature with impressive vistas as far as the eye can see.

One of the cabins, The Dragonfly, offers big panoramic windows with a magnificent view of the valley. The cabin, designed by Rintala Eggertsson Architects, is built out of wood, with an exterior made out of sheet metal that will eventually turn rust-brown and blend in even further with the pine-tree forest. The Dragonfly cabin features our very own pitch-black Kährs Oak Nouveau Charcoal wood flooring.

MIDSUMMER DREAM

Sarah

We are feeling inspired by the recent celebrations of Midsummer in Sweden and the most anticipated season that is summer. A time of romance, happiness and being outdoors; when flowers blossom and nature flourishes – a time when we celebrate the seemingly endless light of day.

That is why we have selected Kährs Pale wood flooring as our Floor of the Month for July (during July 1-July 31). Pale has a beautiful semi transparent white colour with balanced contrast that allows the warm oak nuances to shine through. It is the perfect base for a light, Nordic-style interior – reminiscent of the bright Swedish summer.

ARMY GREEN TREND

Sarah

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 design scheme beautiful, intriguing and appear effortless. A perfect mix of elegant and bohemian.

Select our natural Oak Camino by Kährs Artisan Collection as a rustic, handscraped and lively base for the interiors. The oiled surface, along with its texture, will add a natural fragrance to the interiors- reminiscent of the forest. Combine the floor with decor in army green, khaki, white, brown and black tones for a beautiful effect.

WARM HARMONY

Sarah

We’re proud to present our Jubilee Floor for 2016Vista by Kährs Småland Collection. Vista is a rustic, handscraped product containing large knots. Misty white in colour with balanced contrast and transparency.

Vista is the ideal 1-strip white-washed oak wood floor with maximal wood feeling- a reflection of traditional Swedish craftsmanship quality. The oiled surface gives a beautiful lustre to the floor, as well as a wonderful scent of wood and nature.

Combine Vista with other earthy tones, such as browns, beigesgreys and whites. These colours create a warm, harmonious feeling of comfort and stability; perfect for a home. A nice accent colour to add is a muted yellow– the colour of joy and energy. Alternatively, gold adds a nice little pop of glam to interiors. Keep the gold minimal and in small doses to keep from overpowering the nature feel of your space.

MEXICAN SUMMER

Sarah

When we think of Mexico, we think of white sandy beaches, turquoise waters, beautiful aged wood and intricately patterned textiles. And dreamy, romantic summers. Bring a piece of Mexico into your home with Kährs Oak Cancun. This wood floor is reminiscent of Cancun’s iconic sandy beaches with its elegantly muted yellow, grey and white-toned stain and natural oak texture.

Stepping away from the typically colourful style, we suggest opting for a more neutral take on classic Mexican interiors. Neutral does not have to be boring! By playing with different natural textures, materials, tones and patterns typical to the Mexican heritage and culture, you can achieve a more stripped and calming look and feel.

//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.
