What do the richest Europeans prefer and notless wealthy Russians? Courchevel's fashionable residences create and renew their interiors in accordance with the changing taste of their loyal customers. And we have a unique opportunity to look inside and see the result with our own eyes As one Russian businessman put it: "If you weigh at least one, you should go to Courchevel only to then wrinkle nose and say that in Sochi is just as good ... ". The most pretentious, luxurious and most Russian-speaking West-European ski resort is preparing for a new season in the middle of summer. The main direction - ultramodern chalet: laconic designer furniture and traditional alpine coziness. What techniques can be borrowed from experts in luxury interiors? Courchevel residences can be easily judgedtastes and preferences of the Russian elite. Gilding, bright fabrics and massive crystal finally surrendered. The color composition is based on the contrast of a rich warm tone of wooden walls and ceilings and light cold furniture and draperies. Traditional beams for the chalet are preserved, but there is no carving or other ornaments - they are replaced by strict geometry and underlined surfaces. Today we will consider the interior of one of these chalets. It has just been completed, and in Courchevel is already in full preparation for the new season. Typical carved chalet outside, inside itunexpectedly demonstrates elements of loft and industrial design. Fermented metal, glass, simple rectangular fireplace without excesses, a minimum of accessories. They are replaced by clean forms with almost no decorative elements - a hallmark of the Italian brand Alivar, known for its high-end collections of world furniture design legends. The factory manufactured for the residence the sofas Bahia, bookcases Wavy and mirrors Metropolis. Everything was selected according to the principle of functionality and practicality. The designer who designed the apartments, asked to emphasize the quality of the finishes and upholstery. Discreet natural textiles - distinctivesign of the interior. Bright colors and complex shapes replace the variety of textures: from smooth roll curtains to thick woolen blankets. A natural "linen" color is diluted only by a pair of red pillows. Sophistication and luxury is not achieved by the richdetails, and a combination of an incredible view of the mountains with soothing soft lines of the interior. The main decoration is a refined multi-faceted highlight. Three round glass candeliers seem weightless and floating in the air against the backdrop of massive wooden ceilings; as a bright accent - a black floor lamp on a curved leg, a common element of loft interiors; Dozens of small lamps are concealed behind the beams, creating on the walls and ceiling an intricate light pattern. The chalet style fades away from the traditionalthe dwellings of the Alpine shepherds. Less and less massive dark furniture, rough details, more and more eclectic. But some features still remain unchanged: open space, underlined natural materials, the abundance of unpainted wooden surfaces, the landscape as the main and most important decorative element, which should not be distracted by the complex or bright decoration of the window. Chalet with pictures is in a luxurious residenceOne Courchevel, with its own spa, not counting all other amenities and entertainment. The average price of apartments of this kind usually reaches 800 000-1 000 000 euros, pleasure is not for everyone. But the general principles by which this interior is created are universal and accessible. And use the elements of the "industrial" chalet in their country house, if desired, can each for the amount is much more modest.
