Interiors: A Gstaad Garage

I have been lucky enough to have spent quite a bit of time in Gstaad, Switzerland. The area is beyond beautiful what its typical chalet style housing and the lush green mountains in everyone’s “backyard”. It is a really special place for me filled with so many happy memories.

Every once in a while I check in on Gstaad real estate. Not that I’m going to be investing there anytime soon (um…prices are ridiculously high) but real estate sites are great for showcasing an area’s architecture, style, and for giving us curious folks a glimpse into how people around the world live.

The garage below is an example of what I mean. It’s so darn clean! With flowers, a floor-to-ceiling window, and floors that shine. Isn’t it amazing?

Art: Saanen Goats

A little while ago, Mandy contacted me requesting permission to draw inspiration from my photo of the Saanen goats. Soon after I said yes, Mandy emailed me this photo of her amazing painting.

As you may or may not recall, I took this photo during one of my summer trips in Switzerland. I had no idea at that time how popular this photo could be (do you remember Leah‘s work?)!

Mandy’s painting is going to be part of an art exhibit to be held at the Chalet Hotel Hornberger in Saanenmöser (Gstaad area) over Christmas and New Year’s so if you’re in the area, please stop in and let me know what it’s like.

A Bunk Bed to Foster a Child's Imagination

A sweet children’s room with a built-in adventure play area. Love it!

Children's room: A new look for bunk beds

This pretty white children’s room is in a Swiss mountain chalet in the famous village of Gstaad, where I have been lucky enough to spend the last two months.  My time here has ended (leaving on a plane today actually) and I will soon be back to blogging from Canada. Sigh.
