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 greys with blue accents has been used throughout the space.


The oak wood introduced with Kährs Oak Olof, supplied and installed by Nordic Homeworx, is the dominant material in the space, to which stainless steel touches were added- an embrace of reflective, clear and metallic surfaces, a mix of light wood and walls with luxurious textures coupled with a big framed mirror used as a piece of artwork keeps the feeling light and airy and makes the entire space seem quite large.

With bespoke tailor made storage spaces and some beautiful, meticulously chosen furniture, this small space was successfully transformed into a beautiful cozy elegant pied-à-terre.



The big challenge was to create privacy in such a limited open space. ikonic by R&S‘s solution was to create a custom-made divider headboard beautifully layered with a matching wallpaper to divide the space in two separate area: a living/entertainment area, and a sleeping area. This not only creates extra space within the property but also create a “wow” effect when visitors discover a perfectly set bedroom behind the divider.


From the balanced floor plan and multiple sources of light to the large scale rug, the ikonic by R&S team proves that good interior design can make 568 sq. ft feel like million.

The space has been realised by Rim and Sywar, founders of (,

February is known as the month of love, and considering it was Valentine’s Day yesterday, we’re feeling inspired by all things romantic at the moment.

Did you know that the colour pink represents compassion, nurturing and love? It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing. In colour psychology, pink is a sign of hope. It is a positive colour inspiring warm and comforting feelings- a sense that everything will be okay. 

Add a touch of pink to neutral interiors to add that true sense of warmth and comfort, and combine with a beautifully rustic wood floor such as Kährs Oak Olof, with its handcrafted, deeply brushed, white stain and luscious nature oiled surface.

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 private living spaces of the home! Kährs Manor is a rustic, white-washed and handscraped wood floor, with knots and cracks visible on its impressive 2.8 metre long planks.

Pantone’s Color of the Year is crucial to fashion, design, home decor, and any industry where colour is pretty much the whole basis for existence. The colour for 2015 was announced as Marsala (Pantone 18-1438), a light burgundy shade that connotes a very earthy, bohemian vibe. Pantone describes the colour as “dramatic and at the same time grounding, the rich and full-bodied red-brown Marsala brings warmth into home interiors.”

It is a warm, burgundy colour that matches perfectly with the grayscale tones we are see much of in our furniture right now. So little colour is actually required to give warmth to the interior – it can be a cushion, a carpet, or a bouquet of flowers. However, while this colour is quite bold with plenty of character, there is room to play with it. For example, a matte finish highlights Marsala’s organic, earthy nature; while adding a sheen conveys a completely different message of glamour and luxury.

“Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability.
Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth.”

– Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute®

Whether in a flat or textured material, or with a matte or gloss finish, this highly versatile shade combines dramatically with neutrals, including warmer taupes and greys.

Below we have combined it with two contrasting wood floors: Kährs Oak Ulf – a rustic floor with a rich warm dark grey hue; and Kährs Oak Olof – a rustic floor with a white stain that gives the floor a true white look.

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 look after.

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 the floor, and the thin overall thickness (7 mm) combined with its impressive 12 year warranty, makes this floor ideal for renovation projects.

Nordic Homeworx Seasons Greetings




December is a really joyful and festive month that seems to have everyone in great spirits. And with Christmas only three weeks away, we’re in full swing with decorating our homes in tune with the upcoming festivities. This year – and much to our delight – we’ve seen a huge trend in bringing more of nature’s own elements into the home, and we’re pleased to say the trend is staying on for this year’s Christmas.

Presenting: A Natural Christmas.

Aim for a little less glitter and little more nature; a little less glam and a little more cosiness. And as wood flooring aficionados, we can affirm that there is something extremely comforting and soothing about bringing elements of nature into the home – which is ultimately the greatest feeling to associate with festive family-oriented occasions.
