There is nothing I love more than an exquisitely designed home where no detail is left unturned, and when it comes to detail, Laura Hunt is truly a master. Laura has been frequently included among Architectural Digest’s “AD 100” Best Architects and Interior Designers, and this Aspen Chalet truly belongs on the cover of a magazine. I am honored that Laura has allowed me to publish it first on my blog. Built in the 1970s, the home was in desperate need of an update before Laura worked her magic, transforming the interiors and guiding architectural renovation. The result is pure enchantment, and like any work of art, I can stare for hours at each image relishing each exquisite detail.
The beautiful floral hand-carved doors inspired the Swiss Chalet design and the complementing faux painting throughout the house. Laura studied the classic Chalets in Switzerland for inspiration. She integrated Swiss style with pure linen florals, softening wood accents with velvet trim, antique Native American rugs, and drawing upon traditional Swiss colors of reds, blues, and greens. The children’s suite was painted in rosemaling, the traditional Norwegian decorative folk art, by a Norwegian. By utilizing her clients’ existing collections and by sourcing new and antique treasures from around the world, Laura created a home that feels like it has been collected and curated over decades.
