When we use the word chalet, we are accustomed to represent huge houses, where wooden beams contrast with luxurious exquisite décor elements, where spacious living rooms have a lot of open space and massive furnishings. But this work of a talented American-French designer Marianne tiegen differs from the “usual” chalets. And it differs primarily in its down-to-earthness. This is a small house with cozy rooms very close to us. There are no large-scale spaces and high ceilings here. This house is similar to one that can be built on a bearable budget, using simple natural materials in the decoration: linen textiles in warm colors, a lot of wood and stone. In the color scheme, the author dispensed with bright accents, and thanks to this, the project turned out to be unique. Particular attention should be paid to the bathroom: hidden plumbing, plastered wall and frayed frame – and we seem to be in a different time and space!
