The Swiss know how to effortlessly pair subtle gray and rich red with accents of birch to create a welcoming, cozy palette. Styling the red and gray amidst the snowy-white backdrop in the Swiss Alps creates an inviting, chalet vibe that calmly blends into the natural surroundings. The geodetic design of the pods also uses minimal material, where less is definitely more. By adding strong textures to the domes—like plush wool and tobacco leather—Whitepod delivers an inviting haven in the woods. Shop these products to recreate this modern, alpine look at home.
To create a fresh, bright space opt for natural and birch wood versus traditional dark, mahogany furniture.
A rustic cabin screams sheepskin. Adding this cozy, chic texture to any room whether on the floor or draped over a couch is an ideal accent.
Clean lines and an all-white duvet pulls a room together for a classic look. Aim for a minimalist headboard and toss striped throw pillows to create bold character.
Warm up with a vintage throw fireside or tossed at the foot of the bed.

Is there anything more versatile than leather? It’s an excellent neutral that can be paired with bold colors such as red, and remarkably gets better with age.
Throw in Copper
Copper reflects light and warmth into any space. Sip mulled wine—or, as the Swiss call it, glühwein—in copper steins around the fire.
Paintings of log cabins and European ski culture add dimension to a space which invites relaxation and naturally, apres-ski.
