A Luxury Swiss Chalet Takes the Breath Away

This chalet in Klosters by Nicky Dobree, called HausAlpina, is full of the scent of white lavender and pine from myriad candles, white faux fur cushions, white roses and peonies, white towels, and white silk throws. An ode to snow, the interior is certainly fresh and contemporary. The six bedroom residence is entirely laid out in the most tasteful whites and greys, with details in wood, stone and chrome and forms the perfect ski home for a couple and their four children.

Unlike other expensive ski resorts such as Courchevel and Val d'Isere, which attract big party goers and high spending Russians, Klosters has a name for being quiet and discreet. For those in search of long pistes and challenging off piste skiing, the resort has few rivals.

In the mountains above Klosters and Davos are six ski areas, with 199 miles of runs and 58 lifts. The couple's master suite, at the top of the four storey home, is made to indulge guilty pleasures with a bed, covered in super crisp white linen and quilted silk an egg shaped bath and a white leather covered dressing table.

The master bathroom itself was designed to be a large and spacious ensuite to the master bedroom. The bath rightly takes centre stage. The double basins to the left sit on top of a bespoke vanity with mirrors above. Double cupboards left and right form part of the dressing area as you enter.

Downstairs, the soft neutral tones of the sitting room provide a welcome retreat at the end of a day on the piste. Cashmere throws and sheepskin cushions invite you to curl up on the sofa in front of the fire which is set with a slate chimney breast and is the main focal point of the room.
