things i love: madame chalet

Any parents-to-be with Swiss roots out there? I have the perfect focal point for your baby’s room… 


Madame Chalet aka Genevieve Closuit  is an east London designer hailing from Switzerland, who is the creator of a range of nostalgically themed gifts, stationary and home accessories inspired by the landscapes and kitch vintage culture of her childhood. The Mon Beau Pays wallpaper panel above is one of her designs and would look stunning in a contemporary, simple white nursery – behind the cot, in an alcove, anywhere!  

For all expats who are not from Switzerland, you could of course have a  panel produced with a scene from your own native country by one of the many online digital wallpaper suppliers (try Images can be bought from stock photo libraries such as iStock or Shutterstock.

Happy Monday everyone!

  1. Oh, that’s lovely Ursula. yes, that certainly would enhance a white interior, right?

    I know that it’s trendy to do ones own designs and have them digitally printed? I say, stick to designer’s choices. That’s why they are designers…. anyway, great find!

    • Yep, I understand your viewpoint Tina – it would be hard to beat this design and why would you try? Though Madame Chalet’s Swiss Alps might not be right for everyone, I thought the idea of using memories of your own ‘roots’ in a nursery might inspire people to create their own piece of nostalgia if they can’t find it out there.
