Top 5 Tips To Ace Ski Chalet Style

Wondering how to furnish a ski chalet? Read on to find out how to create an Alpine home from home that ticks boxes in the style stakes.

1.  New nostalgia

Definition: Combining comforting nostalgia with contemporary finishes

This trend is all about stamping your own personality onto your interior. Choose key pieces that make you reminisce but don’t compromise on modern practicality.  In chalet settings, the big comebacks are gingham fabrics, vintage art prints and faithful recreations of mid-century iconic furniture designs (or the real thing if you can stretch to it!).  Lighting is key for this trend and keeps even the most distant  throwbacks feeling contemporary.

2.  Sustainability matters

Recycled plastic| reclaimed woods | bamboo | zero waste

Whilst fur isn’t for everyone, its eco credentials are worth considering if you are after a quick chalet style hit. Our furs are a zero-waste and bio-degradable product.  Many of our furniture ranges are made from recycled timber. With recycled glass and bamboo fabrics on our books too there are many responsible options so that you can make wise choices that hit the mark on style.

3.  Prioritise storage

Cupboards | hooks | boot bench | storage bed

If you are buying off plan, try to add as much storage as possible into your build. It is crucial to have somewhere to lock away your personal effects without shutting off a whole room to renters. Also consider where to store suitcases, hang coats and put skis and ski boots. Hooks are an absolute must for every bedroom.

4.  Rustic appeal

An organic living space inspired by nature

Distressed and aged wood adds character, uniqueness and warmth. It links the interior to the wonderful  natural environment of the mountains and will blend beautifully with the timbers so often used in chalet construction.

5.  Know your audience

Appeal to your potential renters with key attractions

Family chalets are all about the ‘bs’– bean bags, bunk beds and board games.  If guests will be self-catering, make sure that the kitchen is well-equipped and that the dining area is appealing.  Get apres-ski sorted with a games table, hot tub, cinema room or bar area.
