Patagonian heaven

Patagonia is a place I have always wanted to visit.
To me there is something so irresistible with this rugged
terrain with needle sharp mountains, glaciers and icy rivers.

This Patagonian loft carries a lot of the same features as the
surrounding landscape - the elongated vertical lines of the double
height ceilings and exposed wooden structure remind me of
the steep mountain massives, the pale green walls are a perfect
match with the icy glacial waters of the lakes & rivers, the crisp
white fabric of the sofas makes me think of the snow clad slopes,
peaks and glaciers, and the slate covered walls resemble the
exposed and weathered rock face of the South facing mountains.

The materials chosen are rustic and in harmony with the setting -
wood, rock, fur and rich earthy tones with texture and life.

Hi Erin - yes, isn't it amazing!
It is incredible how the designer has captured the landscape and translated it into a cozy yet stylish decor. I am so impressed!
Speaking of which I am more than impressed (read 'humbled') by your impressive list of blogs!! I struggle with my two.. :)

Thanks for your comment and for visiting my blog. I hope you'll continue to pop in - I love hearing back!
