A few months back I photographed the apartment of my friends David & Florence in Hoxton. With a great ceiling height and the two front windows giving a lot of light, the place feels really bright and airy. The key colour theme of green lime against white gives it a very punchy edge, while the massive oak dining table and and the leather club sofa keep the atmosphere welcoming and warm. What also makes the apartment a fun and cool place are all the quirky details found and treasured by my friends, such as the yellow mushroom sculpture, the bull’s trophy head, or the turtle stool in the bedroom.
The end of the ski season has sadly arrived, with the rise of temperatures and the melting of the already scarce snow. It has however brought back the sun and its nice terrace lunches. It was on one of those days, during my last trip to Switzerland in March, that I took some pictures of a beautiful typical chalet. Set in the lovely village of Champéry, in the Valais region, it is a convenient 1hour and 15 min drive from Geneva. A blessing for the lucky Swiss people who have adopted it as their week-end retreat. This gorgeous chalet was decorated very much in keeping with the traditional style of Swiss mountain abodes, but with a slight international twist. The fair wood, comfortable furniture and great features such as the wood burner bring warmth and cosiness, while personal souvenirs such as the Russian porcelain wall lamps give the chalet a very intimate feel. A big thanks to Christine and Diego, the wonderful hosts who allowed me to take those pictures.
