JUNE-INSTAGRAM

WALNUT MONTREAL

Sarah

You know by now that we love the combination of white walls, white doors and white skirting set against wood floor. And this renovated apartment in Gothenburg is a great example of how natural walnut flooring in particular conveys a true sense of luxury and cosiness in a home.

Kährs Walnut Montreal is a 3-strip walnut wood floor with a lot of character. The natural depth and variations in the wood grains, combined with a silky-smooth surface finish, creates a deeply layered effect that just keeps getting better over time.

Fun fact: did you know that in ancient times, people believed that back aches could be relieved by carrying a walnut in its shell in the pocket?

HARTFORD IN MY HEART

Sarah

Walnut: a dark, medium hard wood species. The wood is straight grained and patchy. The heartwood is pale brown to dark chocolate in colour. Unlike most wood species, walnut turns lighter over the years and becomes golden brown.

Seen in this simple yet cozy apartment that nods to a modern take on suave retro design (perhaps even slightly reminiscent of a Mad Men-esque era). We love the combination of monochromatic and wood furniture, gold/silver details and a rich walnut wood floor, such as Kährs 3-strip Walnut Hartford – a dark brown floor with natural variations in colour and structure resulting in beautiful depth.

A ROOM WITH A VIEW

Sarah

This stunning Index Tower apartment with breathtaking views in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) beautifully combines elegant contemporary furniture and suave earth tones with two beautiful Kährs wood floors – Oak Coffee FSC and Walnut Bloom.

We sure wouldn’t mind having a view like that to wake up to everyday! Imagine sipping on your morning coffee and being greeted by the amazing city that is Dubai every morning.

NATURAL MATERIAL: WALNUT

Sarah

Walnut is a dark, medium hardwood species with a straight, patchy grain. The heartwood is pale brown to dark chocolate in colour. Unlike most wood species, Walnut turns lighter over the years and becomes golden brown. It is a popular choice for furniture, cabinet-making, flooring and cooking utensils. Kährs Walnut flooring conveys a sense of luxury and coziness.

Family: Walnut (Lat. Juglandaceae)
Size: Walnut can grow up to 30 m in height (4-5 m when cultivated).
Origin of Kährs Walnut flooring: USA
Hardness: Heavy, hardwearing and hard, but a little softer than oak. Brinell value: 3.4
Colour change: Walnut undergoes a medium to extensive colour change. The dark brown heartwood pales over time, taking on a yellowish-brown hue.
Random fact 1: The Walnut was a holy tree in both Greece and Rome in ancient times. It was a symbol of fertility devoted to Artemis, Goddess of chastity and the hunt, and Diana, her Roman equivalent.
Random fact 2: The oil extracted from Walnut is excellent for cooking. It is also used in cosmetics. Its softening qualities make the skin beautiful and a hair masque containing Walnut oil is said to strengthen dry hair.

 

A BLOOMING HOME

Sarah

This ultra-modern and cool Saheel Villa in Arabian Ranches is extremely beautiful with its predominantly masculine colour palette and feminine details, which makes this home glamourous and gives it a real wow-factor. To get this look, combine earth tones, daring black and stainless steel details with Walnut Bloom wood flooring by Kährs Linnea Lodge Collection. Walnut Bloom is 2-strip walnut floor in a clean grade with no/few knots or significant colour variation.

LIVING IN THE CLOUDS

Sarah

The incredibly adorable wall lamps by Ferm Living create a cute, but still stylish look on the wall in your kids room. There are different designs to choose from – all giving this soft light that adds a cosy atmosphere to the room. The lamps are made of smoked oak veneer and are CE-tested.

We especially love the Cloud lamp. Which one is your favourite?

STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN

Sarah

This villa on Al Wasl Road was designed by Dubai-based architectural firm CentimeterCube and part of a set of five contemporary mixed-use villas. The floating staircase is covered in rich Walnut Philadelphia by Kährs American Naturals Collection, which creates a visually dramatic contrast to the slate floors and floor-to-ceiling glass windows, while adding a touch of softness to the space. It’s all about finding the right balance.
