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!
