Purchasing a home grants you the freedom to decorate the interiors in any way you see fit, regardless of your financial situation. Your home should be a reflection of your individuality and style preferences, while also meeting your specific requirements for the space available. For example, you can choose from a variety of design aesthetics such as industrial, farmhouse chic, mid-century modern, minimalist, or Japandi, to name a few.
For your luxury house and lot in Tagaytay, on the other hand, a Swiss-style interior may be the best design choice for you. Given the cooler weather in Tagaytay, it is possible that living in a home there will make you feel as though you are in a foreign country.
If the idea of living in the countryside of Europe appeals to you, consider investing in a luxury home at Crosswinds Tagaytay, a Swiss-inspired community developed by Brittany Corporation in the Philippines. In a world where residential developments and luxury condominiums are designed to look like Swiss chalets, a Swiss-themed home interior makes perfect sense.
What is a Swiss Chalet?
It is designed to look like the Swiss countryside, and Crosswinds Tagaytay is a luxury residential and condominium development inspired by the Swiss Alps. Condominium buildings, resorts, and luxury homes in this community are designed to look like Swiss chalets, as are the surrounding landscape. Swiss chalets are mountainside dwellings that dot the Swiss landscape.
Originally, farmers used to use these chalets to guide their cattle to better grazing grounds during the summer months, which is when they were most prevalent. Their summer home was in these chalets, where they would make butter and cheese, before returning to their lowland villages for the winter months to continue their farming operations.
Today, Swiss chalets are primarily used by tourists and Swiss residents who flock to the alps during the winter months to ski and participate in other winter sports activities. Because of their location in the Alpine region, these structures have now become tourist attractions in themselves. The traditional construction of these mountain dwellings was made entirely of wood. They also had a roof with a gentle slope to encourage snow to slide off the roof.
This design is now being used to create interiors that are both beautiful and functional. Swiss design is available in large quantities at Crosswinds Tagaytay, which is one of the few places in the Philippines where you can find it. Alpine Villas, a Crosswinds development, features chalets that are designed to look like condominium units.
It was the same architectural choice that was made for the Crosswinds Tagaytay mountainside resort, which is also located in the Philippines. A Tagaytay condominium puts you one step closer to realizing your European mountainside dreams.
The surrounding landscape itself contributes to the Swiss-like atmosphere created. Crosswinds Tagaytay is home to over 35,000 pine trees, all of which are flourishing. The contours of the land’s hillside are also reminiscent of the Swiss Alps, which serve as a source of inspiration for the residents of this community.
A luxury condominium in Tagaytay is the most convenient way to live the Swiss lifestyle on a daily basis. Our team at Brittany Corporation is ready to assist you in your pursuit of a condominium for sale in Tagaytay.
How Can You Achieve a Swiss Home Interior?
Swiss interior design was created in order to provide warmth to a home located in a cold mountain environment. The interior design of your luxury house and lot in Tagaytay should be inspired by the European ski resorts, despite the fact that this is normally considered out of place in a tropical country.
The addition of this luxurious and comfortable feature to your Crosswinds condominium or home will undoubtedly enhance your living experience.
Switzerland’s interior design aesthetic, like any other design aesthetic, is defined by a number of traditional characteristics. If you use any of these tips in conjunction with one another, your Tagaytay home or condo will feel like a European mountain retreat in no time.
Let Wood be Your Key Design Feature
In a traditional Swiss home, wood is used extensively throughout the interior, including on the floors and walls, as well as on windows and furniture. Pine is a popular choice, and it is frequently left untreated and unpainted in order to allow the grain of the wood to take center stage.
Swiss home interior is characterized by the presence of wood furniture such as tabletops, cabinets, armoires, chairs, and benches. You can also use a wooden chest to store personal belongings or extra linen in your Tagaytay luxury condominium, incorporating the chest as a functional storage piece as well as a decorative feature in your home.
A Fireplace is a Must
Although a fireplace is not common in a tropical country, you can include one in your luxury house and lot in Tagaytay if you so choose. With a rustic free-standing metal fireplace or wood-burning stove, you can keep yourself and your Crosswinds home warm all winter.
To keep the area safe from flames, keep the design as simple as possible and use brick or terracotta to tile the immediate area.
Rugs, Blankets, and Natural Textiles
Rugs, blankets, and throws help to make a space more comfortable, both physically and visually. Thick rugs and carpets are used to soften hard wooden floors, allowing your feet to sink right into them. To create a cozy cabin atmosphere in your Tagaytay condo, casually drape a heavy blanket over the sofa in your living room.
Experiment with different textures such as linen, wool, crochet, and cotton to see which ones work best for you. Warm colors, such as deep reds, browns, and oranges, can be used to visually increase the amount of warmth in a room.
Furniture With a Lot of Ornamental Detail
Furnishings should have a grand, solid, and sturdy appearance to them. In order to complete the look, include a leather couch or a pair of leather high-backed chairs in the interior design of your Swiss home. Wood furniture with a lot of carving detail will also work well with this design theme because it will blend in seamlessly with it.
Choose White or Light Blue Paint
While the majority of wooden walls in a Swiss home interior are left natural, some homeowners choose to paint them in order to visually break up the abundance of wooden elements. White is a traditional choice for wall color, but if you want to add a splash of color, you can also paint the walls a light blue color that will remind you of clear skies in the Swiss Alps.
Add a Gable Roof and Exposed Beams
Nothing quite like a gable roof to make a luxury home feel like a luxury chalet quite like a luxury home. It is possible to achieve a cocooning effect with this ceiling detail, which makes use of exposed wooden beams on your ceiling. This design choice once again draws attention to the strength and durability of wood.
Wildlife and Nature-Inspired Decor
A common feature of Swiss chalets is the use of animal skin rugs and animal-head mantle pieces. With the help of these types of decor pieces, you can transform your Tagaytay luxury condominium into a Swiss haven. If you don’t want to use actual animal decor items, you can incorporate them into your design through figurines, paintings, or tapestry patterns.
Opt for Earthenware and Heavy Porcelain
In a Swiss-style home, there is a strong emphasis on using durable materials that can withstand heavy use. This includes everything from dining ware to kitchenware. Use earthenware plates, glasses, and mugs that are rustic in appearance. If they are handcrafted or made to order, the feeling of exclusivity is enhanced even further. In addition, heavy porcelain is preferred over fine porcelain or dainty China.
