Located in the French Alps, near Megève, the house is much more than the iconic image of a story. It is an important architectural rehabilitation that have predominated in the criteria of sustainability and ecology. Amazing chalet in the French Alps. Nothing more to say really, the images speak for themselves. With view to Mont Blanc and stunning nature. The house is an old farmhouse from the 19th century, the exterior kept the same except the window-fittings are modern with the only purpose to catch the supreme view. The Belgian decorator Lionel Jadot was commissioned to transform this former farmhouse.
The chalet has two levels. At the bottom are the bedrooms and the top floor is a huge open-plan, with ceiling height of 12 m, a view to the mountains through large windows that continue on a terrace. Interior is unique in my opinion. Couldn’t fit the chalet better than done here. Combination of old and new, flea market finds and design objects, natural overall style with some added colors and kind of new hippy/bohemian flair. There are a lot more images to see down below if you press the read more button. Don’t skip it as there you’ll find the bedrooms, bathrooms and more of the kitchen. All furniture and pieces from different cultures and eras are collected from trips through Africa, Asia, Europe … These findings have been mixed with antique and vintage pieces. Also some objects from the world of cinema are very present in clear homage to another great vocation of Jadot, as filmmaker. The end result is a very warm and cheerful, halfway between the bucolic mountain home and a sophisticated New York loft. Do you feel ready for a hot chocolate ?
