This large Swiss estate is simple but charming and comes with a little history attached to it because it is the former home of famous author and Nobel Prize winner Hermann Hesse. This home makes a statement both inside as well as outside, projects a sense of stability and can be seen on HGTV’s House Hunters International.
With deep hunter green cabinetry and a Swiss cross-tile backsplash, this eclectic kitchen is fresh and imaginative. Brass pendants hang above the Nero Marquina marble island and tie in with the brass faucets.
An antique French wallpaper design covers the walls in this master bedroom. The bed is accented with a hand-smocked half canopy of sheer Swiss Batiste and the headboard and foot board are covered in traditional blue upholstery.
This bathroom, which was designed to emulate a world-class spa, includes a glass-wall steam shower as well as a tub for two. The walls are covered by horizontal reclaimed wood planks intended to create a Swiss alpine feel.
The corner room of this Swiss penthouse is the perfect lookout point with wall-to-wall windows facing the icy blue lake and mountains covered in vegetation. Subtle details, like puddling curtains and a fur throw, add luxurious touch.
These easy mini quiches are perfect for holiday entertaining. The classic combination of spinach and Swiss cheese paired with the robust flavors of fresh thyme and Parmesan make them an instant hit with even the pickiest of palettes.
Each treehouse was constructed with a mix of woods and designed to look like an upscale Swiss chalet. From the sloping roofline and charming turret to the expansive windows and gorgeous outdoor deck, the home’s beauty rivals that of its surroundings.
The vibrant patterns on these custom pillows relate well to the pattern of the Swiss cross wall decals and the bold, yellow sconce lighting. The wall of cushions provides a place to cozy up and read or nap.
Chango and Co. created every child's dream play space in this expansive playroom. Floor mattresses line one wall and are topped with playful throw pillows for crashing, a teepee provides a place for dreaming, and rope swings hang from the ceiling for extra fun. A bold Swiss cross pattern livens up the walls, and black trim highlights the architectural features of the room.
The IN1 Multi-tool Utility phone case is like a Swiss Army knife for modern life. It boasts essentials like a nail file, screwdrivers and pens, all ingeniously stored inside the phone case. And, it’s TSA compliant, so you can whip out those tweezers mid-flight.
Regular harvesting will keep plants, such as these in containers along a walkway, producing. You also will get even more produce from your small space, says Melinda Myers, an urban gardener. For example, she suggests picking outer leaves of lettuce and other greens when they are 4 to 6 inches tall and Swiss chard and kale when 8 to 10 inches inches tall.
“Our fireplace was painted white when we moved in, and we figured that was the only option,” says Katie. Redoing it, hearth to mantel, in the same terra-cotta shade as the accent wall opposite it pulls the room together. Cranking up the cozy: custom-size natural woven window shades by Graber and creamy white paint (Swiss Coffee by Benjamin Moore) on the other walls.
