Get Inspired with this Alpine-Chic Décor

Are we the only ones who associate the snowy season with hunkering down next to a crackling fireplace in a cozy mountain lodge? Whether it’s the prospect of daily skiing on the slopes or warming up with a mug of hot chocolate, there’s just something about that rustic winter setting that warms our hearts.

This time of year, we find ourselves inspired by Alpine-style rustic décor. Here are a few shots from a prior photo shoot that might inspire some new décor ideas for your home or your chalet in the mountains.

Alpine Decor

An ode to a traditional country cabin, we love the playful elements and bright pops of color that contrast against the dark wood grain. Don’t be afraid to play with vibrant pinks, purples, and oranges.

How much do you want to snuggle under the covers of this cozy bed and watch as it snows? The mix of nostalgic ski prints and classic flannels are the perfect match.

And finally, rustic chic meets a touch of big-city glam in this more polished arrangement. A simple, calm color palette allows the rustic architecture to shine through. Plus, we love the idea of adding that personal touch with beautiful monogrammed pillowcases. Who says an alpine getaway can’t be elegant?

Whether you’re looking to deck out your winter vacation home or create that rustic lodge ambiance year-round, these three looks may be just what you need to get that first spark of inspiration! Which style would you choose?

Ode to “Rumpled” Sheets: Reading My Tea Leaves on Eileen Fisher Washed Linen

“I love a good sheet wrinkle. No, let’s use the word rumple. Rumpled sheets, smoothed as best as possible and tucked neatly around the mattress, are the stuff that summer dreams are made of.”
