Chalet Vieux Valet Verbier

Last week marked 9 years of this blog's existence. It has been a long yet very fun 9 years I have to admit, but after all the hours upon hours upon HOURS of blog research it seems to take alot to REALLY get me excited about a home these days. While getting this post ready, I was so damn excited about it I wanted to crank my tunes, jump up and dance on my desk. This chalet designed by Marianne Tiegen is going on my list of top 5 favourite homes I have ever featured. It is a truly magical blend of rustic, industrial and mid-century styles....all the best rolled into one.

A chalet with style

Winter is upon us here in these parts once again and as usual, I am freaking miserable and counting down the days until Spring arrives. Maybe I would not be so crabby if I had a gorgeous chalet such as this one (in Rougemont, Switzerland I believe) to spend my time in. I would be perched right in front of the fire drowning my frozen sorrows in a 4th glass of red wine. By Mlinaric, Henry & Zervudachi.

Kameha Grand Zürich

The Kameha Grand is a new hotel that opened in Zürich in March of this year. It is one of the most beautifully designed hotels I have ever seen, thanks to the talent and products of Dutch design guru Marcel Wanders. With modern architecture by tecArchitecture and neo-baroque interiors  by Mr. Wanders, this hotel has everything. It is luxurious and has themed rooms to match anyone's desires. I need to plan a trip to Switzerland!

Louise Jones - A Swiss chalet

Perhaps I would be more tolerant of our horrendous winters here in Ottawa if I could "slum it" in a place like this. This chalet in Switzerland is epic. It has everything you could need - including indoor pool, movie room and spa. I would be begging for a snow day so I could have an excuse not to leave. Designed by British firm Louise Jones Interiors

Stones

So much more than a pile of stones. The transformation of a ramshackle series of buildings into a minimalist, contemporary home is a thing of beauty while showing respect for place, materials and history. Rustic yet ultra modern the stone house in Scaiano, Switzerland by Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects.
