Mountains and woods: not a usual chalet in the Swiss Alps

This guest house in the Swiss Alps can be rented for a weekend – in 2015 it was renovated from an old wooden chalet. The interiors are quite unusual – the abundance of wood, typical for such houses, are mixed with elements of retro style, and even floral motifs that can be seen in wallpaper and decor. In total there are 8 bedrooms, 3 living rooms, and several terraces. An interesting feature – every room has a bright bathroom: pink, blue, white, and all of them are decorated in the style of 50’s and 60’s. But the best place, of course, is a veranda overlooking the mountains. Fascinating!

The concept implies beautiful historical buildings, stylish interiors with retro feel and the absence of unnecessary expensive services. We already posted two of their hotels (in London and Amsterdam), and today we are happy to share photos of the new hotel in Paris. It is a beautiful 18th-century building, a progressive 2nd district of Paris and a wonderful design from the best local studios. Enjoy!

Elegant interiors in an old house in Seattle

This old house built in the 40s once was a home for current owner’s mother, so the main goal for the renovation was to carefully preserve the past while creating comfy modern interiors for a young family. As a result, there is such a noticeable contrast between the facade and the interior design. Outside, the house is dark and even slightly gloomy. But inside you will find a whole variety of textures, material, and colors. The interiors are noble, stylish, there are many different prints, retro furniture and vintage accessories. The perfect combination of past and present.

Scandinavian vintage interior

This beautiful home in Sweden was recreated with vintage and antique elements of decor, family relics and restored furniture of the last century. At first, it seems that everything here is very old, but, having looked narrowly, you understand that modern decor objects and household appliances are perfectly inscribed here. The designer has done his best to make the separate parts into a single picture. Note that the owners of the house decided to leave the original old doors, switches, and it was a great idea! As a result, the interior has become not just a successful replica, but a place with a history, character and a very warm atmosphere. You want to light all these candles, sit comfortably on the couch and drink tea. A beautiful house!
