Bring some Chalet Chic into Your Home with Luxe Materials

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Brrrr I don’t know about you, but I have had to dig out my winter gear. Out has come my wonderfully warm and snuggling scarf, and my gloves are very much on. Yes winter is already in full swing and as we wrap ourselves up outside, we can also do the same inside by snuggling under warm furs or a fluffy mohair plaid. Just because we have heating doesn’t mean we can’t indulge with warm textiles, such as wools, sheepskins and faux furs. Chalet chic is very much about using luxe materials, but how do you use them? Furnishings Furniture made from wood in its rawest form should be used to contrast the backdrop of the soft tones of the luxe materials. Their strong, dominant shapes will set the tone for the rest of your design.  Accessorize with pieces inspired by mountain themes and animals such as stags.

For the ultimate in chalet chic find faux furs, velvets and sheepskin or cushions with subtle tones and tactile textures. A quick tip when placing on a sofa is use an odd number of cushions as it always looks more interesting, relaxed, and effortless.

Fair Isle inspired patterns and photographic prints add warmth and style.
