CHALET LES HOUCHES
A charming chalet in the Chamonix valley, nestled in a pristine natural setting facing the Mont Blanc Massif.
The project is by architect and interior designer Nicky Dobree. While built with traditional materials, like stone and wood typically used in Alpine architecture, she interpreted the home in a contemporary vein. Focusing on larch wood, the interior designer had it brushed to lend a more rustic appearance while, for balance and contrast, the hardwood floors are made of oak.
Inside the chalet, everything is designed to ensure guests an extraordinary vacation ‒ from the comfort of the six bedrooms with bath, each furnished in a different style ‒ to the spa, whirlpool bath and, finally, the basement home theater.
The spectacular wood paneling in the living room lends warmth and intimacy to the setting and provides the ideal backdrop for an impressive arrangement of the Groundpiece sofa upholstered in a luxurious beige fabric.
Another cozier and more intimate living room is furnished with an arrangement of the Magnum sofa, also upholstered in fabric in shades of beige.
