How to Decorate Alpine Chalet Style

Swiss chalet's are so beautifully built with all of the detailing put forth in the stair rails and interior moldings and beams.  Each chalet is unique in that each carpenter creates a certain design that is carried out throughout the house on a bathroom door or over a window or in the chairs for the dining table.  Below are a few ideas to use if you are looking into buying and decorating your own swiss chalet or mountain house!

  1. I have seen some news about technology development up till now. It is amazing when you think about how painting has developed into something made from the growing technology, from only brushes and paint rollers, to airless sprays or paint sprayers. It makes painting easier and fun! Anyway, thank you for sharing this article! It really inspired me to decorate better. Would like to see more updates from you.
