St. Moritz Sophistication

Antiques, new upholstery, sumptuous details and gorgeous woodwork all create a gorgeous mix in this elegant St. Moritz chalet.

A rustic and charming kitchen mixes it up-- old world blue and white tile, country pine, rugged stone floors and white washed cabinetry intermingle with modern granite counter-tops and the most luxurious of contemporary appliances.

In the entry... a practical stone floor, faux painted "stone" walls, rustic knotted doors and mountain antiques.

This is a to-die-for ceiling!!  It's all just beautiful with the old limestone fireplace and the pine book shelves with rustic pine column and ionic capital details.  Again, the mix of rugged mountain materials,  country craftsmanship inspired by European-city-sophistication and elegant antiques, carpets and upholstery.

And another gorgeous ceiling and floor.

White washing or 'liming' at its best.

Above, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the view.  I love curtains in the mountains.  They soften up all that pine woodwork creating a feeling of sumptuous comfort.

Speaking of sumptuous, nothing like a velvet headboard, a fur throw and old oil paintings to bring on the luxury.

A wider angle view of the library.  In the midst of all the books and masculinity, a cozy sofa in a floral print beckons the reader to curl up and enjoy the fire.

Utterly charming.  Love the detail in the woodwork, the short curtains and the well-loved little carved fireplace.
