It’s at this time of year I start thinking about ski chalets. Not your typical A-frame alpine cabins, mind. I mean expansive wood structures with soaring ceilings, incredible views, and open fireplaces. So I was happy to discover that this month’s Architectural Digest has just such a home on its cover. Now this is my idea of a ski chalet!

What a great juxtaposition of mid-century and contemporary with traditional craftsmanship. The architect somehow manages to incorporate those solid wood beams while keeping the overall effect light and airy. It’s a great color palette too. It reminds me of that other great ski chalet from last year’s Elle Decor. Who could forget this?

And this month’s Elle Decor has a Montana ski lodge with a similar palette, dark fire surround and beamed ceilings.

This modern interpretation of a ski lodge, from Living Etc, also has my vote:

Looks like it’s time to dust off those skis!

We’re going skiing at the end of February but, sadly, we’re not staying here…

This Tahoe home is the work of John Maniscalco Architecture (also on Houzz). I love the way all the traditional features of an alpine cabin – from the wood-clad walls to the fireplace to the fabrics – are reinvented with a more modern twist. Just beautiful.

We, on the other hand, are staying in a much more traditional cabin. Hopefully it will be nice all the same!

Why on earth am I posting pictures of a ski lodge in June, you might ask. Because I couldn’t resist! Just look at this gorgeous ski apartment, by designers Hecker Phelan Guthrie.

The space….the light….the white antlers…. (ahem).

This is the Fjall Ski Lodge in Australia. Come to think of it, maybe that can be my excuse for posting about it in summer. It is winter over there, you know…
