If you think that laying your hat in the Alps means having to choose between a rustic mountain hut or a log-burning ski lodge, then you'll be amazed when you get a glimpse of this latest inspiring volume in the Interiors series. The mountains of the Alps are a unique terrain unlike anything else in Europe, thus when constructing and decorating a place to live, architects and designers have to be conscious of adapting to the extremes of landscape and climate. The desire to make your home a beautiful thing, to find a balance between Function and elegance, becomes particularly significant in the Alpine region. Primarily Famous as a location for skiing resorts and muesli, the Alps straddle the borders of so many European countries, and this has allowed for a lively interaction and exchange between many peoples and cultures. The selections in this book are impeccable. For example Reinhold Messner's castle. There's everything From baroque villas to farmhouses, famous designers/ architects to the ordinary Alp-lander with very good taste. All the interiors here are lavishly photographed and documented.
