WINTER LOOKS AS FRESH AS NEW SNOW

Thursday, July 06, 2017

 



Our latest interior project took us to the snowy slopes of Mt Buller. Introducing Whitehorse Village - the new benchmark in Alpine living. Ski-in, ski-out luxury chalets nestled amongst the snow action.

Inspired by the alpine lifestyle and breath-taking surrounds and views, we’ve got lots of ideas to help you settle in for winter, be it by the slopes or not. And, if you’re thinking of living the chalet life, the last remaining Whitehorse chalet is ready to move in now, fully furnished by us!

Here, we share some tips to help you decorate your home like a cosy chalet.

1. LET NATURE INFLUENCE THE DESIGN



At Mt Buller, the wide sunny valley, downhill slopes and spectacular views influenced our palette, finishes and details. Whilst it was important to incorporate layers and warmth, we balanced this with enough space to let the views do the talking. If you have a view, give it the space to sing, and make sure your interior is in sync with the setting. 
 
2. BRING IN COSY TEXTURE



Whether you are living in the mountains or by the coast, winter living is all about layers and texture and incorporating bursts of colour for added impact. Warmer hues, vibrant accents and layers of cosiness get our tick. If you do just one thing this winter, layer-it-up.
 
3. MAKE A STATEMENT WITH THE FIREPLACE



A winter retreat just wouldn’t feel complete without the warmth and ambient glow of a fireplace. Here, the textured timber wall and taxidermy deer complete the look, creating a space in perfect sync with the alpine setting, and fit for those après-ski drinks.

4. KEEP IT RELAXED


 
Natural lighting does wonders for a space and how you feel within it. Here, the views and sunlight brighten the space and keep things relaxed. As do the comfy seating areas, paired back palette and textural touches throughout.

5. ACCENTUATE WITH ART



At fenton & fenton we love accentuating a space with art. Be it a hero piece, a curated grouping or a collected curio. Think about the vibe you are after and choose art and pieces that complement the surrounds and mood. And, don’t be afraid to mix it up, hanging different styles alongside each other.

6. BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER



The trick to bringing spaces to life is to create zones that encourage people to come together. Rugs are ideal for creating zones within larger spaces, fireplaces create a space to huddle and seating that is moveable and sits within a room (not around the perimeter) encourages cosy get-togethers.
