a study in scenic walls

This trend while not new in the world of Interior Design has found a fresh vision and I for one am a huge fan of the large scale graphic elements of these patterns. I hope you’ll find these spaces as inspirational as I do. Here’s a bit of history: In the 18th Century hand-blocked wallpaper designs included large panoramic views of Architecture, Landscapes and Pastoral subjects.

“The room is quite a good size so I really wanted something that made a big impact as soon as you walked in but which didn't overwhelm the space. This mural worked perfectly the black and white design had the wow factor I was looking for without distracting from the other elements in the space.”

 This Bath Designed by Etons of Bath Is Breathtakingly Elevated with paper by  De Gournay . (Image  @etonsofbath ) Could you image this as your bath. The grand scale is amazing. The    de Gournay  paper moves this space from utilitarian to palatial.

 (Image  Rebel Walls ) I love the dark background of this pattern. when I was a child my mother had black wallpaper with a floral pattern in our powder room. it was striking. Rita knew for the highest impact to wallpaper the ceiling too!

Chaletmomma turns 1!

I can’t believe Chaletmomma is a year old! I’ve had so much fun this past year!

In the fall of 2016 I started with an idea - I love: to chat; my home; design and styling. I knew I wanted to share my voice hahaha! I quickly had Gmail, Facebook, Twitter and IG set up, had purchased my domain and was set up as a LLC. I had a business model. I know bloggers who unfortunately didn’t own their name across all social media platforms - I was thrilled when it all fell into place.

The next step was my logo - I drew it and designed it the old fashioned way with pen and paper. Everyone in my personal life knows I often added a little drawing of the chalet on communications and above our address. Not only did I know how I wanted my logo to look but, in my minds eye I had the website layout as well. I had done my research.

To design the website and bring my vision to life I was blessed to find Kelly Christine and her firm Kiki&Co. I can’t recommend Kelly enough!

You will recognize this painting from the image carousel on the top of my homepage. It was painted by a successful Water-colorist Nat Lewis a neighbor and friend of a previous owner. We are so lucky to have it on our wall. Not many people are fortunate enough to live in a chalet!

Chalet LivingRoom wm.jpg

Still one of my all time favorite images of the Chalet Livingroom from 2017 and one of the first I shared on both IG and here on the website last year.

Favorite: preferred before all others of the same kind.

I thought about the pieces I wrote over the last year and what my favorites might be - I adore them all, but there are some that stand out - lets revisit a few. click the title under each image for the linked post.

I could go on and on highlighting posts. I love sharing our visits to Museums. The Met Cloisters: Friday Fun! Metropolitan Museum of Art: Metropolitan Museum of Art Part 1 and Part 2. As well as the recent visit to Shelburne Museum: A Little Trip Part 1 and Part 2. A sweet friend told me she could hear me speaking when she reads Chaletmomma and truly there is no more endearing compliment I could ever hear!
