Layered | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

Season is changing. Time for coziness, fireplace, hot cacao, and earthy food is coming. If I had a winter chalet in the mountain, I would decorate it just like this place with only small variations.
I would layer walls with images and objects of mountains and lakes, games and fish. The décor of the room would be layered with leather, plaid fabrics and Kilim rugs.

I would design a massive fireplace layered with stones and wrought irons.

My chairs would be very comfortable and spacious. I would want them made of rawhide, wood and heavy decorative nailheads.


All the interior floor would be rough distressed wood, layered with stenciled images of nature.

I would want an interior cascade ending in a pool where to relax with a colorful cocktail and a game room in the same area.

The entry door, of course, would be decorated with a heavy wood handles.



The exterior of the chalet would be layered with the suffuse light of lanterns and the ground would be layered with bright and cheerful beds of  black-eyed Susan.



But this is not my chalet, it’s one of Bass stores and I fell in love the first time I visited it. I thought, If I will ever own a chalet, I would decorate it just like it, warm and cozy. Ciao,

    When I saw those ATVs outside the window, I wondered, ‘Hmmm. Where is that?’ and then of course spotted the logo in the floor design….

    great spotlight on a sportsman’s dream interior!
