Two Boring, Connected Bedrooms Get an Alpine Chalet Look

Two adjacent bedrooms with a bathroom in between becomes two modern sleeping areas inspired by an alpine chalet in a project called MATT. The solution was brought about by Van Staeyen Interieur who used every inch of space possible by building out into the rooms to add storage and built-in beds.

This “chalet” is built out into the room and houses a queen size bed in it. On the inside surrounding the bed, they used pine veneer to make the space cozy. Outside, everything is white with pops of bright red. The adjoining room’s accent color is green.

A geometric shaped hole is cut out allowing access to the bed. A drawer pulls out to reveal a step stool to climb into bed.
