Stunning Modern Mansion Preserving The Roots in Courchevel, France-Les Gentianes 1850
This stunning rustic modern mansion is the wonderful expression of the mixture between contemporary styled architecture and the traditional way of building things. The luxurious interior design exceeds in good taste, a powerful feeling of a time-honored design and all the features and comfort found in every modern home.
The stunning wooden modern mansion Les Gentianes 1850 is a luxurious yet comfortable wooden chalet situated in the French Alps. At first glance you would think that this is just another resort cabin but this one, in my opinion is a beautiful and intelligent work of an interior designer. Why interior design ? Because it uses wood as a main material ( a raw material with warmth that expresses a welcoming feeling) and with it he succeeds in creating a glamorous and luxurious space, imagined only in dreams and fairy tales. The structure of the roof is visible , creating a vibrant rhythm. Large windows revealing the Courchevel white slopes and big open spaces with no apparent boundaries are creating the feeling of openness. Accessories of design that seem old local and conservative, are put together in contrast with items that reflect luxury and and opulence. But what is so interesting and I must say, inspiring , is that this brutal contrast, of two different elements put together creates a perfect harmony, a luxurious and comfortable place that if witnessed , will not be soon forgotten .
Although from the outside this cabin in the woods looks like a simple mountain home, the interior design with contrasting elements (local old accessories including the massive usage of wood with luxury accessories), is creating harmony , is a work of art itself , conserving the roots of local architecture , with a pinch of contemporary luxury-a truly amazing rustic modern masnion.
