Mountain Retreats (new 2020 book)
The “ chalet" of today is a far cry from the original herdsman’s hut. Its successful ascent to elegant mountain mansion, frequently used as a holiday getaway by the societal elite, began in the 19th century. Its allure today is unbroken. As a place of relaxation and retreat from the day-to-day, chalets are being built in mountainous regions around the world. The mountain setting is idyllic, the way of life relaxed and rustic, and the houses built there reflect a passion for the outdoors and a flair for the unconventional.
The follow-up volume of "Modern Mountain Hideaways" displays the charm of nature, while winning over the viewer with contemporary designs, which range from the classical wooden house with flat gabled roof, to the high-tech mountain hut. This new book profiles twelve new and recent private mountain chalets. Stylish photography captures the casual mountain style of these exclusive retreats set amidst impressive scenarios. The diversity of interiors ranges from comfortable cabins filled with antiques and family heirlooms, and European-style homes, to modern chalets designed with a modern, minimalist touch, both inside and out.
