Now that winter’s here, there’s something extra magical about daydreaming of snow-capped mountains, cosy chalets after a day on the slopes, hot chocolates with marshmallows, roaring open fires and snuggling under faux fur throws.
While, most of us, sadly don’t live in the Alps, you can recreate a chalet look at home with simple touches that add a mountain feel without crossing the Channel.
Introduce tactile accessories
Cast your summery accessories aside and make way for faux fur cushions and cosy throws that dial up the comfort factor and add a dash of mountain cheer. Our Original Rustic range is the perfect base for creating a chalet look at home, with the farmhouse style and darker waxed oak tones adding warmth to your bedroom or living room.
Swap your bedding
A really simple way to inject some alpine decor is by swapping your bedding for something that a bit more seasonal, like @ourhousetohomeno.10 has done.
Create a fireside nook
If you’re lucky enough to have an open fire or wood-burning stove, make the most of the extra warmth and create a cosy reading nook. Our armchairs and loveseats make the perfect fireside companion where you can snuggle up and daydream that you’re in the mountains!
If you want to transform your bedroom into a chalet-style sanctuary, adding panelling is a great way to channel the mountain vibe at home. We love how @athome_withwinston has painted her panelling a rich forest green which looks lovely teamed with the warm cream accessories, upholstered bed and our wood and painted Shay bedside tables.
Soft lighting from candles and lamps also adds to the ambience that will up the alpine chic factor at home and create a welcoming space you want to spend those long winter evenings.
