To celebrate this marvellous moment in Darlings’ history, we have some tips and advice on how you can create your own opulent sanctuary ski lodge space.

Ski Lodge Style Materials

The key to this design scheme is mixing rustic charm with a look of luxuriousness. Use raw materials alongside sumptuous textures such as sheepskin and (faux) fur textiles with natural wood and stone features like floors, fireplaces and staircases. This combination really adds character to the space.

For a palette that is ultra-sophisticated whilst keeping things simple, go for elegant and decadent shades such as warm, delicious browns mixed with snowy mountain shades of white and grey along with deep dark black. These tones work really well within this theme as they complement the natural materials.


This look is all about getting warm and cosy, so your furnishings should reflect that. Choose a big, comfy sofa – leather or fabric, either can work – and combine it with snuggly throws and blankets, plush rugs and there should definitely be a fireplace of some sort, even if it’s just a fake one on a screen!
