ALPINE LODGE LUX­URY

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - FEATURE -

There is some­thing in­her­ently Christ­massy about alpine lodges; con­sider wooden structures tucked away within an end­less realm of green­ery, shrouded by early morn­ing mists and awash in the warm­ing glow of a roar­ing fire­place. While the lat­ter of those el­e­ments aren’t nec­es­sar­ily a lo­cal at­trac­tion, there’s still plenty of ways to dress your home to cel­e­brate the style. With hunter green hav­ing risen to pop­u­lar­ity as a main colour story for the home, it makes sense to work it into sea­sonal decor that none­the­less posesses enough longevity to carry your in­te­ri­ors into the new year and be­yond. Pair the hues and ma­te­ri­als with mod­ern sil­hou­ettes; clean lines and struc­tural neat­ness pro­fer a sense of the present that is all at once el­e­gant and lux­u­ri­ous.

Green it up

While Hunter green is the shade of the sea­son, feel free to go a few tones lighter if it’s too dark for your tastes. You can even opt to work with an anal­o­gous colour pal­ette to pro­vide a gen­tle con­trast in hues while main­tain­ing that for­est green seren­ity.

Wood

As a nat­u­ral el­e­ment with lit­eral roots in forested es­capes, wood makes the per­fect base ma­te­rial with which to build a home of un­der­stated lux­ury. There’s lit­tle a wood-base floor won’t work with in terms of aes­thet­ics, and the beauty of the ma­te­rial of­ten lasts years and years with proper care. In fur­ni­ture, as well as in var­i­ous other fixtures, it is re­mark­ably ver­sa­tile.

Tex­tures

The con­cept of lux­ury isn’t merely be­holden to cold mar­bles and crystal; tex­tures have taken on a new im­por­tance in the home in re­cent trend­ing styles. These days, home­own­ers are bring­ing in soft fur­nish­ings that are rich in tex­ture, while the same fea­tures have ex­tended to sur­faces and dec­o­ra­tions alike!
