The architect of Zermatt, world-renowned Heinz Julen, designed this duplex apartment underroof of 206 m2.
With its wood fire nestled in the midst of the great lounge window and hand-made furniture inventions (its famous chandeliers and chairs) this apartment has been featured in numerous weekly editions of “design”.
Very open thanks to its glass roof, this chalet offers a panoramic view of the village and the Mischabel mountains.
On the main floor: large living room with three separate relaxation areas, dining room, kitchen and two terraces. There are also two double rooms with wooden ceilings at each end of the floor. Each room has its own bathroom / WC, TV and balcony.
The top floor is the bedroom with a separate mistress circular Jacuzzi bath, a glass ceiling, stunning views and a separate shower and toilet.
On the ground floor is the fourth double bedroom with its own massage shower / wc: private sauna glazed room to be with a “treadmill” (treadmill) and two chairs.
The three floors are connected by private and / or stairs lift. The Penthouse and Heinz Julen Loft are two of the most original Zermatt properties.
This is a very good inspiration for a chalet design, bringing light and more space. Of course, building such a big glass roof must cost some more but at the moment, roof building and insulation regulation makes the price going up anyway, so why not choosing a glass roof for a room !

This is a simple and very cosy interior made by scandinavian designer Folkhem.
The calm and relaxing look has been created thanks to the neutral colors like white and greys, associated white light wood. Thus it adds a natural feel without filling the interior too much. The whole look is uncluttered but still warm : a good combination !
Here are some pictures of an old farm renovated recently. I found the decoration interesting as it is very colorful. It contrasts the “grey” colors we often find now in modern decoration. And it is still a very relaxing peaceful place.
This old Dutch farmhouse was renovated by Larissa, an interior designer and her husband, Peter, project developer. Originally built in 1860, the farm now is the home of the couple and their 2 kids. While keeping the old character of the space, Larissa and Peter created intimacy and a cosy modern feel to their home.
Concrete floor, wooden beams and plenty of colors and textures : it looks like it a good mix for this interior !
Baptized by Nature Design is a functional and affordable Eco furniture collection made of driftwood in combination with other materials.
At CosyNEVE, we love the creative process that Cathérine Op de Beeck operates. She is using the strenght of nature while respecting it. It is a very inspirational work and I hope you will enjoy it.
A creative story about wood formed and grayed by nature.
Cathérine Op de Beeck (14/01/82 Roeselare) makes modern, functional little furniture and useful accessories with a very unique look. Every creation is unique by its literal meaning. Her collection is made from driftwood, from tree trunks that travelled hundreds of kilometers through the river Rhone in to the Mediterranean Sea to finally end up on the Camargue beaches to start their bleaching process. Every 3 months, Cathérine herself goes to the unique beaches of the Camarque to carefully select her wood. “Every piece has its own character, its own story, its own coloring process” according to Cathérine. “I cannot have anyone else make that selection. My inspiration starts by feeling the wood, hearing the sea, the search on the abandoned, bewildered beach.”
“An exclusive and forceful furniture collection that unifies the strenght of stainless steel (Inox Aisi 316) and the imperfection of the Camargue driftwood from France in a fluent and magical way.”

Welcome for a visit of a very charming restaurant in Copenhagen: Höst. I discovered it on the website “NewNorm.dk” and I basically fell in love with the atmosphere which is all I like: simplicity and natural feel.
I enjoy the combination of interior design with dinnerware. It has been designed by architects and designers Norm and produced by Danish designhouse Menu
Norm was responsible for the interior design of Höst. Based on the same philosophy underlying New Norm Dinnerware, Norm – in close cooperation with Danish designhouse Menu – has created an organic environment in an urban setting. Guests enter into a warm and inviting space and are met with the unmistakable sense of Scandinavian cosiness, while everything is also a bit weathered.
“New Norm Dinnerware and Höst meet in a symbiotic relationship, where the dinnerware accompanies seasonal local cuisine while evoking a special atmosphere. The light-blue glazes lead thoughts to the cool evenings of Nordic summer. They combine beautifully with light summer foods and provide a contrast to the season’s colourful berries. The dark blue-grey glazes symbolise the seas around us and the dramatic cloudy skies – the elements surrounding fish and fowl. The warm brown wood tones tell of the forest’s depth, sensuality and warmth, making them a perfect companion for autumn meals. The coarse texture of the stone plate tells the story of the Nordic mountains – a scenic backdrop for herbs, root vegetables, mushrooms and wild berries,” say Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn from Norm.
I really enjoy the light calm color combination of the dinnerware in contradiction with the black industrial fixtures.
A great choice of painting different style wooden chair in a palette of dark to light grey.
Bulb light, simple, industrial, but so discrete !
Natural materials: wool and wood.
I had never thought chop board would look so nice on a wall !
