I raised the wall height to be able to create a two-story chalet with a living room/kitchen/dining space on the lower floor and a bedroom/bathroom on the upper floor. There are windows all around to bring in natural light and the beauty of the outdoors.
The room hints at the snow with the whites and creams while warming you with wood tones and a beautiful classic fireplace.
Another space to add to the cozy feel of the room. It is a place to snuggle up and admire the beauty that only nature can provide.
A small table for two is centered between the two large windows. The pine trees bring in seasonal greenery.
The kitchen is painted in a blue-green slate gray color that compliments the slate color of the front door and adds interest to the room. All of the whites and creams stand out against the rich woodwork.
Rough metal texture and shiny porcelain provide an lovely contrast.
The kitchen is next to a backdoor that leads the couple to a beautiful private hot tub area. Every part of the room is arranged so that there are clear pathways and the room doesn't feel cluttered. It is a very functional space that one could even make this their home rather than a retreat.
The rich tone of the winding staircase provides a welcome contrast to the lighter flooring and brickwork to make it an immediate highlight of the room.
The spiral staircase leads to an elegant bedroom that continues many of the colors and tones of the lower level.
A small space to sit and read by the window.
The bedroom is mostly kept in calming and warm brown tones and neutrals white pulling in more of the deep maroon. The elegant and classic elements contrast with the rustic brick and weathered wood flooring.
The bathroom is built up at a higher elevation as the inclined roof rises on that side of the room. The frosted glass provides privacy while letting light through. The large beautiful chandelier is able to have its own moment at the top of the spiral staircase.
The cabinetry in the bathroom continues the same color as the kitchen cabinets on the lower floor. The wood provides clear definition to separate the bathroom from the bedroom.
The classical elegance is continued in the tile work in the bathroom.
The natural light from the window bouncing around on the glass and tile work keeps the space feeling bright, airy, and larger in size.
