Chalet Janluke – A collaboration with Socrates Miltiadou

As if one ancient greek name in a single blog sphere wasn’t enough I’ve been working with the Architect Socrates Miltiadou to create a skiing Chalet in La Tzoumaz in Switzerland called Chalet Janluke.

It was a pleasure to be asked to create a colour scheme for the Chalet that would give it a unique identity. A silk Jacquard woven fabric design called LATITUDE was stretched over several large frames and cushions and throws were made for several bedrooms. The fabric was the starting point for a colour scheme of bright olive-green and a warm magenta touched with some Eames classics in a hot mustard yellow and rug singing with turquoise and violet. Possibly for rent in the future….

    Ptolemy, this is absolutely stunning! I’ve been a fan since a tutor mentioned you on my degree course about 5 years ago! Is the rug your design too? – and is it available to buy anywhere?

  2. It was a pleasure to listen to you talk at Interiors, yesterday. Thanks for sharing your passion for colour and weave. The images of the chalet were stunning and I loved the use of colour in the hospital in Mansfield. I’ll do a detour to look at it when I’m over in that direction!

    Highlight of the show for me!
