Canmore is a charming town on the edge of Banff National Park and about an hour away from the city of Calgary. Canmore is a popular spot for Calgarians to own vacation properties since it allows them to be close to the many ski hills, hiking trails and outdoor activities in the Rocky Mountains. A few of our clients have homes in Canmore and we always enjoy working on the design of these weekend retreats. It’s such a treat to design a vacation home that is completely different from what we would do in the city. Recently, Reena lead our team in the renovation and decor of a Canmore ski chalet owned by some long time clients of ours. They love getting out to the mountains and wanted to have a cozy, welcoming space for their busy family. We incorporated timeless rustic materials and some bright accents, a horn chandelier and a few bold patterns. Here are some photos of the living spaces in the newly renovated ski chalet…

The result is an inviting, casual, space perfect for snuggling in on a chilly evening or just getting away from the hustle of the city to breathe in the crisp mountain air. Some of our favourite elements are the chambray sofa, the dramatic ikat drapery, the patina of the saddle brown leather and the shot of cobalt blue. Our absolutely delightful clients are thrilled with it too and are looking forward to enjoying many years with family and friends at their new ski chalet. Stay tuned for the photos of the bathroom and bedroom next week!
