A mountain home reminds of relaxed moments more than any other place.

A high-altitude mountain chalet, calls to mind natural materials, a crackling fireplace, the warm colours of the furniture and the refined fabrics that complete the interior with a sophisticated touch.

 A sensorial trip, that creates continuity with the beauty of the landscape and the winter wonderland. To decorate a mountain retreat means to create a strong bond between the home interior and the surrounding landscape.

Carefully choosing every single detail, is creating a welcoming and comfortable home, where to experience the direct contact with nature. Quality time and well being is also the result of what surround us: each single piece of the interior has to play its role to create a perfect combination, made of beauty and functionality.

The wood is among the most used materials for a mountain retreat, a magic element of an enchanted landscape, that immediately creates a cosy and warm atmosphere. Its rustic, thus elegant aspect generates continuity with the mounting surrounds creating a natural charm.

Nowadays trends suggest using it not only on the floor, but also on the walls and for building bespoke furniture for an interior with personality.

Light is another fundamental aspect for a mountain chalet. Framing the windows with decorative curtains, it’s perfect for a full immersion in the landscape and its magic, freeing the sight over the beautiful light and scenery.

The colours play an important role when communicating a profound and intimate sensation.

Usually, mountain chalets use colours like red, green and light blue. Other suggested tones are all shadows of white, cream and various brown tones.

But the colour proposals can be much more. In fact the above-mentioned colours create a sort of continuity with the natural materials, thus the real touch of style is to be able to play with contrast.

To a neutral interior you can play with total black elements of furniture. Red, yellow, turquoise, green, blue and black, if used with style, can express a unique, satisfying and fulfilling interior.

Originality and style are at the base of everything.
