The beauty of a chalet is that it knows what you need in order to relax and stress out your mind

Personally when I think about a chalet I automatically relate the word chalet with vacation, relaxing weekend, hot chocolate, elegant fireplace, silence and comfort because to be honest that is why people choose to build their own chalets.

If you already have a chalet you will agree that you can’t wait for that weekend when you decide to leave all your stress behind and go for a fresh air mini vacation, when you can put in order all your thoughts, cook something unusual and enjoy a fabulous book near the fireplace. Or even better you can build a chalet near the beach. Wood, sand and salt water are the perfect combination. Watching the Sunrise or the Sunset from your chalet porch must be magic and best of all you can decorate it exactly how you want, there aren’t so many rules.

So the question is which are the benefits of having your own chalet?

 Comfort: First of all think about the comfort and the intimacy you have in a modern warm cozy chalet. If it is designed proper to have everything you need you will want to stay there forever. If you build a chalet in mountains to be closer to skiing, what could be better than returning to your warmed chalet and rest in a comfortable soft armchair. A chalet can have a hot tub or a sauna which are exactly what you need. Your chalet is your second home, you will feel familiar with it and nothing will upset you. Forget about booking  room in a hotel, a chalet if the answer key.

Space: is the second best reason for having your personal chalet. You will be amazed by the space it gives you. To have your own space when you go skiing or if you want a take off weekend, hotels can be pretty stressful but the benefit of a chalet is that you have a lot of space only for you. It will allow you to walk around without problems. Chalets offer enough space for you and guests.

Privacy: and the thing you adore the most is privacy because when you run away from the real world you will want to be able to meditate, relax and find inner peace and you can’t do this without privacy. And if you want to hang out with your friends and no one to bother your a chalet is the answer.

I used to live in a studio apartment before and I’ve always searched new ideas for how I should make the best from my space, so today I will give you some brilliant ideas for your studio apartment.

The easiest way to have intimacy is to PLACE A CURTAIN AROUND THE BED. It looks romantic, intimate and very cool. You will feel your place safe and calm.

You can use a curtain separator for kitchen too if you feel that you need private space in the kitchen and no one else see you what you are up to. Or you can also use an old window as a kitchen separator. Both could look good and both give you that impression of privacy.

Because you need space for your office work you need to take into consideration how important is that you have a desk inside the studio because if it’s not that important you can easily place your laptop on a shelf next to the bed, or you can improvise yourself a place where to put a small but comfortable desk, I would also put it at the bottom of the bed, or you can transform the coffee table both in a desk and a table for guests.

What I think it would be both creative and useful are sliding doors for wardrobes and bathrooms. These doors don’t require too much space so you will never have to trouble about how you open the door.

The perfect furniture for a studio apartment is that that can transform into something smaller or bigger, like a sofa that can become a bed during the night and a comfortable coach during the day. It saves space and it is more then inventive.

ideas for studio

Because you also need entertainment you can use a window as a projector screen so you don’t need to worry how you will all see the movie without trouble.


If you don’t have space for a normal size table for eating, you don’t need to worry and improvise a smaller one, placed next to the wall. It looks lovely and there is plenty of space for two to eat or to enjoy a morning coffee. In this way you don’t occupy space in the kitchen and the space there remains for your movement.

small table

I would try to combine space with comfort and utility. Like a library bed. Yes, library beds exist and they look incredible, they offer you intimacy, privacy, comfort and they are ideal for studio apartments. They also have space for your books and not only, that is why they are called library beds.

studio bed

Take into consideration the fact that a studio apartment bathroom won’t be big so you need to find accessories that help you store as many things as you can. I would opt for tall but slim shelves that don’t occupy too much space but they are perfect for storing bathroom items. This is available for the shower too. Search for a shower that has shelves and you can keep your cleaning products there.Buy a cabinet that permits you to deposit all of your stuffs if there is not enough space for shelves and other items.

The first look of your house is the hall which is the entrance in a house designed with your visions and desires that is why you need an impressive hall that will lead you into the elegance of your home.

Today I will guide you into the art of modern halls and after we inspired ourselves from these halls you will realize that your hall has never been more modern.

A modern hall must always been maintained because it is the first impression and we are very aware of the fact that the first impression counts the most. After you take care of the exterior of the house, your next job is to create a remarkable hall. It is extremely important for your own happiness to have a modern and lovely hall design which encapsulates the elegance of the entire home.

Let’s take a look at some of the most modern and luxurious halls that have been created with a touch of futuristic vision.

modern hall

What would you feel when you enter in a house with such a design? A red door which moves on rails, extremely tall and large, with silver arms which increase its elegance. This rolling door is the focus point of the entrance hall and you can notice the elegant grey floor tile which fits perfectly with the red majestic door, followed by the bright floor tile from inside the house. This is what I call modern.

entrance hall

I really have a thing for rolling doors, I find them very modern and chic, leave the impression of power and style and when it’s a door with a glass window through which you can see inside or outside the house, looks even more stylish and modern. As you enter in the hall you can see a bright floor tile which leave the impression of more space. It is recommended not to decorate the hall with many items. Leave it fresh and aired because in this way the first look inside the house will be even more spectacular. What I like about this hall is the fact that as you step more inside you enter directly in the living room which is really a great idea of open space.

modern hall

Look at this elegant hall. Inspires cozyness and comfort. My favorite detail is the lighting which puts in evidence the rest of the details like the paintings which were perfectly chosen and arranged to leave the impression of modern. That yellow elegant bench is the focus point of the hall because of its bright cast. An elegant comfortable bench or chair is very important in a hall, in this way you automatically can rest as you enter inside and take off your shoes. Another detail which I adore is the carpet. Looks soft and elegant, brings a warm atmosphere to the first impression of the house.

When you enter inside the house you need a place for your things to put, while you take off your clothes, shoes and so on. Wall stickers are a phenomenal idea if you want your house to be more jolly and dynamic, they don’t just give the impression you are a creative person they also add character to your home. I personally think a wall clock is a splendid detail for a hall.

open space hallAnd we are now to my favorite modern hall which impresses with its simplicity and open space vision. I simply adore the idea of large tall windows which allow seeing the marvelous view and the chosen tile was perfectly picked to match with the other details. I would add to this hall 2 comfortable soft armchairs.

I hope I helped you with some starting ideas for your new hall. In a future article we will see how we can fancy decorate our halls. Enjoy!

Go for vintage romanticism and live your own fairy tale. I would definitely like to sit on an antique Biedermeier armchair which makes me feel safe and romantic. A 1950’s Italian cabinet is a must for a romantic atmosphere.


You definitely need a romantic bedroom because that is where all the magic happens. Soft sheets, fluffy but elegant pillows, a large bed and a glamorous chandelier is what gives the room life. This style expresses sophistication and class.

Lighting really makes a difference!


We already agreed that our home is the greatest place where our mind and body find relaxation and peace and that is why every detail is important no matter how big or small it is.

Lighting is another aspect which must be discussed in order for us to mix everything in a perfect ” smooth” result. 

Also see:

Coffee Themes

In what concerns me I really prefer natural light because doesn’t affect our eyes and natural light has the properties of relaxing and emanates energy vibrations. But of course natural light doesn’t last all day and because of that we need to take into consideration what kind of lighting is more suitable for our house.

Well we need to choose our lightning in such a manner that it will always give us a good mood and never feel that we are irritated by the light because if this happens that the light we chose is wrong. Let’s take a look at some lighting ideas for your living room.

I would start with light layers which we usually choose because we want to give a little more energy to the room without having corners with no illumination. This layers are a great idea if you have a large living room with many details you want to be noticed.


Also see:

Desk Chairs

My favorite lightning remain chandeliers: You can choose a chandelier which will really go perfectly with the furniture, or only with an item from the room, you can choose chandeliers that reflect your personality ( extravagant, eccentric, more classic, simple, jolly). Chandeliers are really a detail that makes an enormous difference. In case you have an Italian design living room, you need to take into consideration that you need a glamorous chandelier not a simple one.



But if you have a fresh living room which reflects energy and nature you can easily chose a chandelier which shows your love for nature and bright colors.



If your lovely living room has a fireplace than you really must lighten it and make it feel loved and appreciated. Choose elegant scones which usually are attached to the wall so the light falls perfectly on the item you want to be lighten. Sconces are often equipped with shades or glass diffusers which can make the light softer. You might take into consideration to install a pair of sconces. The light given by the sconces is a relaxing, often romantic one which really makes you feel safe.


Some people want their rooms to be fully lighten and to assure themselves that they see everything without struggling that is why many people appeal to Recessed Lighting which because to halogen, incandescent or compact florescent bulb the light can be positioned exactly on the spot you want to be lighten.





For those persons who want they entire house to inspire love and romance than they must choose fire lights which resonate perfectly with grace, romance and love. They will lead you to a cozy feeling and they will melt your heard. So arrange some candles on a tray suspended from the ceiling and you made 80% of the romantic atmosphere. This lightning will invite you to nostalgia and to always warm your soul feelings. I would personally choose this type of lightning for a chalet or a beach house where we go in holiday.


These types of lightning are especially created for different types of living rooms. You can inspire yourself with my ideas and create your own special way of lighten your living room. Everything starts with a sparkle!
