The clients asked designer Nicole Davis to create a home where they could have warm family gatherings any time of the year, a place to make memories and to feel safe and comfortable. And most importantly, the views from the windows should become an integral part of the interiors. Creating a design, Nicole drew inspiration from nature and surrounding landscapes, so the color scheme consists of light natural shades. Of course, the house has many wooden surfaces, but the lines and shapes are refined and modern. Very light and calm dwelling, filled with air and coziness!
The interiors of this Swiss chalet Lucine look modern and sophisticated thanks to the strict dark elements of the decoration, which together with the wooden base of the house create beautiful contrasts.

Hope you’ll like it!

Mountain cottages in the Alps are not very often designed in a minimalist style, but Chalet Komani is just the example of modern design harmoniously combined with the architecture and with the surroundings.

Despite all the severity, the interiors are decorated with great taste and a style. Great work!

Chalet is one of the few types of present-day buildings that honor the past and do not hesitate of their roots. Almost always chalet interiors are above the time and history and it is impossible to tell whether the photographs were taken yesterday or 100 years ago.

One can be fond of modern design or Scandinavian minimalism, but such interiors will delight the eye anyway!

This wooden cottage is located in the woods of Alabama right on the lake shore and used to be a fishing cabin. But in such a picturesque place you want not only to fish, but also to enjoy the solitude of nature – so the owners decided to convert the small house into a comfortable weekend home for two or a small company. The cottage had to be slightly expanded, but the atmosphere of a simple wooden cottage and with its charm and coziness was preserved inside. Great project!
