The ski season may be over but fun can still be had on the slopes, especially at a ski resort as exclusive as Courchevel 1850, in a chalet as palatial as the Petit Palais. Afterall, with its own spa, private disco, 6 bedrooms, decor that oozes style and not to mention a staff of 7 to cater to your every whim, who needs to ski??
What the agent says: "If you seek the ultimate luxury ski chalet where every imaginable indulgence awaits you, then Chalet Le Petit Palais is your Nirvana. A quick glance at the details is enough. From the private nightclub, cinema room and spa to the team of dedicated staff to the exclusive location in Courchevel 1850. Le Petit Palais has it all, and more. Furthermore, it has been designed in the kind of faultlessly chic and cool contemporary manner that an international style icon would be proud of...
...But hold on a minute. Don’t overlook the jaw-dropping facilities within your private palace, in your hurry to get out and about. Spend a little time taking all six floors, from the delectable living area at the top, with separate TV room and mezzanine library, to the enormous, world-class spa in the basement. Don’t miss the contemporary wood burners and works of art, skilfully placed amidst shades of charcoal and cyan, luxurious fabrics and lush finishes. On another level of Chalet Le Petit Palais is your very own private bar, complete with dance floor, DJ mixing desk and nightclub light and sound system. There’s no need to leave the confines of your own chalet when you are surrounded by such extravagance. And we haven’t even mentioned the cinema room and the wine cellar yet. There’s even a dedicated playroom so the children won’t feel left out. The only problem is that every other chalet will pale in comparison."
What we love:
The chalet is so overladen with extravagant luxuries one fears it might set off an avalanche. Flashy indulgences aside, the design scheme features a mix of natural wood wall panelling and ceilings with flashes of black softened with layers of neutrals. This contemporary luxe chalet look works wonderfully well.
What we would do:
A few well chosen pieces of colourful, sculptural furniture and accessories would work wonders by adding a dash of character and personality.
Le Petit Palais is available to rent from the Firefly Collection.
A simple, sculptural yet colourful table light such as the Air from LZF would look great in this design scheme. Alternatively a slick, understated metal light such as the Table Tower table light from Frederik Roije would also work well.

Aston Martin - the esteemed marque beloved of James Bond, has teamed up with S3 Architecture to design a country residence which is just to Live and Let Die for. Located in Hudson Valley in upstate New York, Sylvan Rock is a mere 2 hours away from Manhattan but feels like a world away from the metropolis.

Ahh - America - the land of big landscapes, big dreams, big successes; and with big houses to match. Case in point is this 6,000 square feet family home set in a 14 acre plot in the bucolic idyll of rural Connecticut.
