One of the latest trends in wood flooring is grey – from shades of driftwood to charcoal. Grey coloured oak floors are made to look like they have aged over the years, creating a unique and warm patina. Our range includes many different designs and surface treatments.
Inside the box
Jutting out further than the lower levels, the top storey of this Dutch house almost floats above the property, making it appear like a stack of boxes. Glass, concrete and wood maintain a neutral palette that lets nature perform a starring role. Grey wood floors have been used throughout the house to enhance the raw, yet cosy atmosphere.
Situated on a small plot of land, the house packs in a vast open-plan living area and three bedrooms in a layout that lets plenty of light into each room. The open-plan ground floor leads to the bedrooms above, accessed by the raw concrete staircase. The wooden flooring, kitchen cabinetry and big glass windows introduce additional materials to the home, throughout the interior.
The minimal colour palette used in the interior reflects the home’s reverence for nature and its elements. The fireplace is cast with the same concrete as the staircase, adding a visual texture that contrasts with the grey oak flooring and walnut cabinetry.
