Former Farmhouse Converted into Sophisticated, Yet Bohemian Chalet in the Alps

Belgian decorator Lionel Jadot  was commissioned to transform a former farmhouse into a spectacular chalet. Located near Megève, a major tourist resort in the French Alps, the project features two levels, the first of which accommodates the bedrooms. Above, there is an impressive open-plan living area, with a ceiling height of 12 meters. This particular interior is the focal point of the entire cabin. The abundance of wood and the colorful decorations give away a feeling of coziness, while the generously-sized windows flood the room in natural light.

The perfect image of a room surrounded by extensive mountain views is completed in this case by a traditional fireplace, located right in the middle. A lovely mix of vintage and traditional defines the interiors of the chalet; the designer chose to add personality to his project, by embedding various furniture and pieces belonging to different cultures from Africa, Asia and Europe.

    Violet is a great colour; always full of energy but I think this one should be accompanied by white at home. Otherwise it’s overwhelming.

    What an absolutely amazing home. I love the tile work on the counter tops. Fresh, creative and unique. Would love to vacation here.
