Decorating Your Home Chalet Style
A chalet feel can really bring home the memories of that place you stayed in on that romantic holiday, the simplicity of it makes it such a relaxing atmosphere, and with the decorating products on the market today its possible to put that little chalet right in your own home, so you can be on holiday all the time, and relax in style.
First you will want to decide what furniture you want in your chalet room, and as you may already know, big comfy sofas go best with this style, such as puffy chairs, love seats and ottomans. If you prefer you could go for a wooden style sofa, which has a pine finish, and whitewashed furniture also goes well here.
Then it’s time to decide on the colors, which mainly center around pale cream and blue, and white, which all seem to work equally well. Strong colors like red and green shouldn’t be used on the walls, as they ruin the relaxation because they are ‘busy’ colors. The walls need to be just a little bit duller than the furniture, so make sure you keep color in mind throughout the design process.
This is one of the few styles where less is more, as too many accessories in the chalet style room will just make it look cluttered and will detract from the relaxation, like with the bold colors. Some pleasant photos, and a couple of skiing mementos will complete the design, and to make it a bit cozier, blankets and pillows should be used.
After all that work, sit back and relax in your chalet, as this is the main purpose of chalet style rooms.
