|This is the house where my sister in law and my brother moved in this summer |
- it is what we call it here in Switzerland a Chalet. According to Wikipedia the definition of Chalet is:
A chalet ( //), also called Swiss chalet, is a type of building or house, native to the Alpine region, made of wood, with a heavy, gently sloping roof with wide, well-supported eaves set at right angles to the front of the house.

|My sister in law is a total shabby chic freak and that is what the Chalet represents: Shabby chic, vintage... I tell you AWESOME! Their garden is fantastic:|
|A deckchair for a rest even during winter time...|
|Pots ready for the next planting...|
|That is what you need to deal with the greenery...|
|A glance from the greenhouse into the garden...|

|The door into the cellar...|
|Before going inside we take off our rubber boots and shoes...|
|Cellar door closed!|
|It is true, isn't it?|
When I saw the house it reminded me of the house my girlfriend's grandma lived in! Actually it was located very close to this chalet. The smell in the cellar took me right into my childhood... memories of braised chicken the elderly Lady had prepared when Verena and me arrived, white napkins and also a big silence as the house was large and she lived there alone! Still - there was a feel of warmth and total protection... a world I have never forgotten... and now it is back in this house! Mindblowing...
Tomorrow I'll show you a few pictures of the inside.
The house is not finished with it's decoration. big work ahead of my brother's family!
But I believe you'll feel what it is meant to be when you see the photos.
So till then! Keep on decorationg! It is such fun!
