PATTERNED FLOORS: MIX & MATCH

Sarah

This Fantastic Frank apartment in Stockholm, Sweden shows us how beautiful it is to combine wood floors with different patterns in a single space.

Though we do not often recommend doing so, it can be both an interior design enhancement as well as a clever way to add more interest to the space. However, we do recommend keeping the colour tone of the floors the same, or very similar. The reason for this is that by keeping a unanimous colour tone, you will add a sense of harmony and peace in the space.

This apartment contains two different wood flooring patterns – herringbone and Dutch. These two classic patterns create a sincerely elegant, effortless and timeless feeling in the apartment, and when combined, do so even more.

The oak wood floors are both stained and aged to a beautiful brown colour, which unites them, despite half the apartment being in one pattern and the other half in another. It’s that overall holistic feeling that is created that we love!

For a similar look, we recommend choosing our herringbone floor, Kährs Oak AB; and our Dutch-patterned floor, Kährs Oak Palazzo Rovere.

This beautiful apartment is characterised by its generous ceiling height, modern stylish selection of materials and its cool industrial feel.

The wood flooring has a strong focus, adding a soft yet rugged look, with each individual plank in full enhancement due to bevelled edges. Kährs Oak Nouveau Brown is a 1-strip floor in selected oak, treated with brown natural oil that produces a striking patinated surface. The bevelled edges help to create a floor whose look and feel recall bygone days.

A perfect dose of beauty and patina from the first moment.

BLACK // WHITE // BRASS

There’s something about the tiniest bit of brass that instantly makes a space more interesting. Especially spaces with lots of matte white and black surfaces; small amounts gold add a lived-in and sophisticated quality.

TOAST SKAGEN

Sarah

Du gamla, Du fria, Du fjällhöga nord. Du tysta, Du glädjerika sköna!

This past Friday on June 6th, we celebrated the Swedish National Day. A national holiday that for many marks the beginning of summer. The national day for a Swede means longer days (with Midsummer just around the corner), the end of the school year and pre-vacation excitement.

In Sweden it is custom to eat a dish called toast Skagen, primarily in summer. Named after a fishing port at the northern tip of Denmark, toast Skagen is typically served as a starter at Swedish dinner parties. It was created by the popular Swedish restaurateur Tore Wretman. For the recipe and to learn more more about toast Skagen, click here.

With the delicious dish fresh in our memories (and tastebuds) from this past weekend’s celebration, we’re feeling inspired by this beautiful home in Värmdö in Stockholm’s archipelago. The beautiful 3-strip Kährs Ash Skagen wood floor combines the naturalness and liveliness of ash with the elegance and lightness of white matt lacquer. The white matt lacquer highlights the wood’s natural beauty, giving the whole floor a soft and pleasing finish.

FEMININA

Sarah

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 and enlarge the space.

The white-washed herringbone floor adds a interesting, timeless and classic touch to the base of the interiors. Kährs Oak ABC White wood floor is a white oiled oak floor with colour variations and small knots. Herringbone floors are not old fashioned!
