SHABBY CHIC

Sarah

Shabby chic is a beautiful interior design style, made famous by British designer Rachel Ashwell in the late 1980’s.

The main characteristic of shabby chic interior design is aged furniture. It could be chosen for its appearance of age with all these signs of wear and tear or it can be distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. The first step is to create a change to items already in place. This requires the ability to think creatively. Consider how your furniture would look like in a different colour. An ordinary mirror can affect the feel of a room if you paint the frame and polish it to bring out the feeling that the mirror has been around for decades. The goal of Shabby Chic is getting new items look as if they are old beloved heirlooms, things that will be passed along through generations.

However, Shabby Chic is about so much more than just the details. Having a clean base in the room is extremely important to create the appropriate setting, as with any interior design scheme. You can never go wrong with the timeless combination of crisp white walls and a rustic wood floor such as Kährs Oak Danaborg or Kährs Oak Oyster to create the perfect base!

To get some real-life inspiration, check out our client’s beautiful Shabby Chic Arabian Ranches Mirador villa here!

AFRICA DREAMING

Sarah

“While the more stereotypical animal print and wood designs traditionally found in African-inspired interiors are beautiful, African design seems to be embracing contemporary influences, pairing them with ethnic furniture style and colour. Being the second largest continent on the planet after Asia, there is certainly plenty to be inspired by.” – InsideOut, February 2012

This home in Dubai’s Green Community has exactly that – a beautiful contemporary and airy take on rustic African design. Dramatic, vintage-looking Kährs Oak Danaborg wood flooring completes the look. Oak Danaborg has a handcrafted surface to enhance the beauty of the knots and cracks, and is lightly smoked and surface treated with a natural white oil that gives it a grey look.

This absolutely gorgeous Mirador villa in Arabian Ranches is the ultimate representation of the romantic Shabby Chic style.

The owners of this fabulous home couldn’t have selected a more suitable floor than Oak Danaborg by Kährs Craftsman Collection to bring all the beautiful, distressed and rustic/romantic furniture and decorative items together.

What a great representation of how to stray away from the norm and make your home chic yet personal and child-friendly. We L-O-V-E this home!
