A laidback lodge for chaps
Those who prefer a more masculine look while they’re recovering from a gruelling day on the slopes might be tempted by the El Lodge in Sierra Nevada, Spain (www.ellodge.com), recently designed by Andrew Martin International. Elle Lodge this definitely isn’t; rather than sheepskin and lambswool, expect plenty of macho cowhide, antler chandeliers and lamps fashioned from Campari bottles.
Founded in the late 1970s, Andrew Martin has pioneered the modern man-cave style of decorating that was the antithesis of knicker blinds and toile de Jouy that dominated the following decade. Today, the company has evolved into a flag waver for eclectic, anythinggoes interior design.
