Anyway, I was in that frame of mind when I looked through some German edition Elle Deco (as it's called here) magazines recently and came across several versions of beautiful Alpen homes. My preferences definitely lean toward urban design, but I thought these were something I could definitely handle! Here are a few shots that I thought were worth sharing:
If you're going to go rustic alpine, I think this is the way to do it.
The lighting, textured pillows and edgy table keep it fresh.
A modern, clean take.
The title of this article was "Chalet Goes Zen" - I agree!
I love this type of table in any setting and here is no exception.
Loving the nail head trim for some sophistication that also plays well in a rustic setting. The porcelain on the table is all from Nymphemburg, explained below:
This piece, with similar pieces shown on the table above, is from a 260-year-old Munich manufacturer called Nymphenburg. Most of the pieces are too traditional for my taste, but I really like these.
What kid wouldn't want to jump into those bunk beds?
I think I could even convince grown-ups to sleep in these!
I love those gray wool blankets and the ladder - truly Chalet Chic.
The sourcing guide. If you want any sources, let me know and I can translate for you. :)
We're off to the Alps for the day tomorrow so I'll be back on Monday!
