Modern Cabin: Alpine Chalet Chic

No longer limited to antler chandeliers and raw wood beams, Modern Chalet style is sophisticated and elegant with roots in the traditional. For a contemporary take on this inspired design, we’ve put together our favorite pieces to elevate your modern interior and bring the beauty of alpine chic home.

Modern Chalet Living Room Ideas

While exposed timber framing or wood trim certainly adds to the look and feel of a modern chalet space, utilizing rustic finishes and layered textiles works just as well to create a warm and cozy aesthetic that is totally chic. Faux or real fur accents, animal motifs and antler-inspired designs can appear on furniture, decor, and even lighting designs. Look for lighting designs crafted from natural materials like wood and stone, seating decked out in cowhide or sheepskin upholstery, and warmly-finished coffee tables to round out the space for a perfect get-together with family and friends.


Modern Chalet Dining Room Ideas

A fantastic opportunity to mix rustic and modern design, a modern chalet dining room can easily be outfitted with a reclaimed timber framed dining table effortlessly accented by solid wood or even metal dining chairs wrapped in neutral upholstery for a cozy touch. A sideboard with ample storage in a natural or light finish helps to keep your space clean and clutter-free while filling space with additional impactful pieces. Dramatic lighting is always in style and while an antler centerpiece may not be your vibe, looking for designs with rich finishes, such as the Arca Chandelier, in black, rust, and brown can help to create impact without looking out of place.


Modern Chalet Bedroom Ideas

For most rooms, but especially the bedroom, a neutral rug that provides a soft touch underfoot is a must, for both defining your sleep space and providing a touch of warmth to your room. A striking wood bed frame with carved accents ushers in richness and elegance while accenting with faux fur throws and pillows lends a hint of alpine flair. Textured textiles and Nordic-inspired designs pair perfectly within a Modern Chalet space and a neutral wood nightstand or side table brings both balance and additional storage for bedside essentials.


Modern Chalet Kitchen Ideas

The combination of both rustic elegance and cozy sophistication can easily be extended to the kitchen with a few simple pieces to carry over the modern chalet look. Nordic influences in the serving pieces and storage containers offer a touch of sleek style while still remaining casual and cool. Leather accents and fine crystal find their way to the tabletop in the form of serving trays, decorative bowls, and paper towel holders. A dark metal sconce brings a welcomed touch of rustic beauty while balancing out the light neutrals of stoneware plates and bowls serving up meal after meal.


Modern Chalet Bathroom Ideas

Utilizing simple, yet eye-catching pieces can transform a bathroom into a space fit for a chalet, without going overboard with patterns or animal motifs. Opting for a neutral wall color and simple lighting will allow for other decor pieces to stand out. An eye-catching leather-wrapped mirror provides the perfect wall accent for a morning routine, while providing an unexpected form. A marble floating wall shelf provides additional storage as needed and helps to fill an empty wall space with natural material beauty. Simple, functional and ready to blend with any set-up, the Modo Bathroom Set from Blomus offers contemporary form and chic silhouettes in titanium-coated steel.
