This stylish volume takes us into the exclusive world of mountain chalets. Sanctuaries from the over-scheduled and chaotic world below, these high-altitude interiors offer cozy, welcoming spaces to relax or socialize after winter sports or alpine strolls. Most notable is the role landscape plays in the design of these dramatic dwellings. Set against hillside views and picturesque valleys, the room’s furniture, textiles, and artwork take on new vitality--regardless of whether the style is rustic and traditional or sleek and modern. Although varied in ambiance, all these chalets share an awareness of texture, scale, and light that creates a unifying sense of ease and grace.
