The region of Megeve in the French Alps is a wonderful destination for tourists seeking a relaxing place to spend the winter holidays but also a great location for private chalets. It’s where Bo Design made Chalet Cyanella a dream come true. When designing this place the studio was inspired by the topographic environment and the views.
Guided by the motto that less is more, the designers managed to give this chalet a particularly charming character that distances itself just enough from the usual rustic decor to stand out in a modern and sophisticated way. At the same time, the interior remains very welcoming and comfortable, being balanced out by the great expansive views and the large windows that let the outdoors in.
The social spaces have fireplaces and their decors are meant to be enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing. The main materials used throughout the chalet are simple and organic, the palette being mostly based on stone, metal and wood. They are used in combination with a series of warm and welcoming color nuances such as shades of brown, red and other earthy tones.
A lot of emphasis was placed on the lighting and the artwork and accessories used throughout the chalet. The indoor pool, for example, is illuminated by LED strips installed on the ceiling while the lounge area featured a higher ceiling section and a sophisticated and modern chandelier.
The bedrooms are cozy and inviting, with large windows and in some cases also with a ceiling skylight. They’re complemented by walls covered in wood, exposed ceiling beams and stone accents. The master bedroom opens onto a balcony.
One of the bedrooms has bunk beds and is a fun place for kids to sleep in. It doesn’t have the same type of large windows featured by the master suite and instead has a rather small window with simple treatments, placed at the center of a triangle-shaped wall.
The upper level also has a nice little open area that serves as a sort of home office. It has two small windows that let in a little bit of light and a wall sconces that gives a warm glow.
