Recently, Karndean added twelve new wood plank looks to the Van Gogh collection. The new styles replicate the visuals that occur through burning, liming, and smoking.
Tawny Oak, Burgundy Oak, Hessian Oak, and Honey Oak are the floor lightly lime washed oak look designs. These four designs are reminiscent of salvaged antique flooring, which work well for traditional and contemporary designs.
Reclaimed Redwood, Aged Redwood, and Salvaged Redwood are designs that were inspired by the American Redwood railroad ties. The Burnished Beech and Smoked Beech designs create a rich and warming foundation for any decor style.
The Lime Washed Cypress and Burnished Cypress are two of the most unique plank designs in the collection. These two styles combine liming and smoking techniques, which results in a more refined and sophisticated aesthetic that is perfect for any room in the house.

Many people love Christmas so much that they turn their house into their own little Christmas sanctuary. Some people put up multiple Christmas trees, some put as many Christmas area rugs or decor around the house, and some create one room in the house with a winter or Christmas theme.
Interior expert Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen created his own indulgent Christmas sanctuary in the ‘throne room.’ Laurence based his design in the bathroom because of the concept that the only true peace is found in the ‘throne room.’ Laurence used products from the Van Gogh and Michelangelo collections from Karndean. He used the soft white styling of Karndean’s White Washed Oak and the contrasting charcoal black tones of Karndean’s Umbrian Nero. These two floors combined create a striking backdrop to his unique space.
Besides the flooring, Laurence used some creative winter decor. He used two snowy white owls, tree branches, and a small mound of fake snow. He also placed a few leaves throughout the room to go along with the winter theme.
