What interior design for this luxury chalet?

The materials and the high-end decorative objects were privileged and mixed in this chalet of Zermatt. Wood and stone alternate with white walls. The floors are tiled with large slate gray tiles. Numerous lighting fixtures are recessed in the ceilings. Everything contributes to the harmony in the interior decoration of this chalet. This mountain atmosphere is punctuated by design elements, like these black and white mountain pictures. Because thechalet spirit also includes personalized wall decorations that reflect the tastes and history of the owners.

Between tradition and modernity, the most remarkable thing about Mario's chalet is that the luxury is not ostentatious. The refined and cocooning style gives an immediate impression of well-being. And the interior decoration, associated with the soul of the place, strongly contributes to it.
