Courchevel Chalets Refurb For 2022/23
Refurbishment Of Chalet Mouria (Lounge / Dining Area & Chalet Monique (Living Area)
In between cooking lessons, buying antiques & hosting retreats, Nikki spent most of her spare time between June and November undertaking the makeovers in Chalet Monique and Chalet Mouria in Courchevel, as well as Chalet Tavernier in Morzine.
It was a lot of work, a creative challenge which Nikki rose to, and we are really happy with the outcome.
Both Mouria and Monique now look and feel a lot warmer, more cozy, more relaxed and both chalets now have a subtle calmness about them, which is what our chalets are all about.
We are sure all guests this Winter and in the future will enjoy the extra comfort. Check out the images of the refurb below.
This is what Nikki had to say about the refurb:
"Inspiration for Chalet Mouria came quickly to me. As soon as I walked through the front door of this beautiful old chalet, I knew exactly how I wanted to bring her back to life.
So many beautiful beams, an open space with high ceilings and a room that was over-crowded with heavy, dark furniture.
I had to empty the space, feel it and see it, and transform it into a cosy mountain retreat for all to enjoy. I used a mix of warming, light colours & tactile soft furnishings.
We started by sand blasting the exposed beams, repointing the stone wall, then painted the walls and chimney with my favourite paints from Farrow & Ball.
I shopped for a collected mix of pre-loved items to be married with the new. Metal chandaliers, coffee tables and paintings were sourced from antique markets, allowing the chalet to retain an old world feel. Lamps, rugs, throws and a lot of scatter cushions allow guests to snuggle up in front of the fire after a hard day on the slopes.
Thick thermal curtains help to keep in the warmth of the fire, and old wooden tables make this place cosy and relaxing...the perfect place to allow guests to enjoy home cooked meals."
