One of my all-time favorite design books is written in 1986 and packed with amazing photos showcasing the latest in urban design from the ’80s. The book was given to my husband and me when we moved to our new place and I’ve returned to it time and time again when brainstorming design ideas for our home. Even though the book is now decades old there are some timeless images that speak to popular loft style: the chic modern vibe the industrial look and the artist’s dwelling.
The key to creating a modern glam loft is knowing when to hold back. This look is every bit as subtle as it is stunning. While not as luxe as a penthouse featuring mirrored furniture and Hollywood Regency flair the glamour comes from the little things: a marble surface here and there a shiny light fixture or a geometric patterned rug. Clean-lined furniture keeps the elegance in check.
In an effort to create a community within the forest the designers imagined a single plan for all the houses that brings together unity giving the residents both privacy from the outer world while preserving a wholesome amount of intimacy. From the photos it can be assumed the buildings have met and exceeded all expectations.
However the surprise feature of the house is found beneath the lower floor as a partially hidden level underneath contains two additional bedrooms along with a well-equipped home office. Carefully placed glass windows and skylights throughout the house offer ample natural ventilation while the beautifully lit backyard provides a spacious elegant gathering area for a fun party or two!
While most winter retreats and ski resorts go for a more rustic vibe this stunning house exudes an opulent aura by bringing together a multitude of textures colors and surfaces to paint a brilliant picture. Large glass windows ensure that the view outside becomes a natural part of the indoors and that each changing season brings along with it a colorful and vibrant new backdrop.
Rich textures deep hues plush furnishings and dazzling custom-designed lighting create a warm and intimate space that perfectly complements the cold ski slopes outside. Sophisticated and enchanting the house floors you with its sheer magnificence and unending inimitable aura. Step inside once and you will be tempted to never step out again! Integrating an array of contrasting textures and styles the retreat truly is a dream home in every sense of the phrase!
