Winter is a great time to plan a ski resort getaway. Dreaming of slopes and spas has inspired us to search out this week’s top 5 resort inspired design posts.
1. Mountaintop Suites
7 incredible Suites at Europe’s Top Ski Resorts, Architectural Digest
Let’s all agree that a jacuzzi overlooking stunning mountain views is now a pre-requisite for all ski resort suites. Hot tubs aside, these mountain hotel rooms offer inside looks to rival the snowy slopes outside.
2. A Classic Chalet
Humbert & Poyet Combine Rough and Refined for the Interior of a Swiss Ski Chalet, Interior Design Magazine
Maybe this comes from a childhood full of watching campy 80s snowboarding movies, but this Swiss chalet matches the first thing that comes to mind when we hear “ski lodge”. A blend of rustic cabin and contemporary furniture makes for a stylish and comfortable place to rest up after a day on the slopes.
3. Little Hotel, Big Idea
Have you heard of pod hotels? The concept was born in Japan to suit the needs of travelers who want little more than a place to sleep. Pangea Pod, a ski town hotel in Whistler Village, British Columbia, offers skiers sleek design paired with a smaller price tag than they might find in the surrounding luxury ski resorts.
4. Lodge and Luxe
Wild West, Home and Design Magazine
Sticking to the rustic fur and antlers motif, this Wyoming lodge and spa offers close access to ski slopes as well as some ranch adventures fit for a cowboy.
5. Style by the Slopes
Comfort and Style for a Rustic Mountain Home, Traditional Home
The open floorplan of this Colorado home near snowy Beaver Creek lets you soak in all the splendor of the homey space. “Why does it always have to be bears and horns?” asks designer Jan Showers. We think this ski town house looks fantastic without the hunting-lodge standard trappings!
