Tricia Huntley's Lake Geneva Transformation

A few months ago DC based interior designer Tricia Huntley of Huntley and Company mentioned on her blog, Luxe and Lucid, that she had a project in Lake Geneva, Switzerland. Recently she posted the results of this Montreax apartment transformation and it is luxe and gorgeous. This bedroom is a beautiful mix of patterns and textures with various stripes repeated throughout. I love the textile hanging behind the bed.
Here's just one peek into the living room. Love this chair! Along with the furniture, Huntley and Company installed the wallcoverings, lighting, textiles and accessories. The 1970's faux tortoise multi-faceted table is from Georgetown's Darrel Dean's Antiques which Tricia blogged about.
I've never seen this tie treatment for a bedspread - love this detail. Notice the zig zag pattern in the stitching of the spread and in the pillows.
Here's Tricia gazing out at the incredible view of Lake Geneva from the apartment. For more images of the interior and a fun, behind-the-scenes looks at the installation go here.

With a view like that, I would be in heaven. There is something about being near a body of water that is so transformative! :)

Such a beautiful home. I love the tie on the spread! The one wall papered in stripe is perfect.
Have a nice day.

Love the mattress ticking stripes. Both bedrooms look like ones you would always want to sleep late in.

I'm with the others, what a staggering view. The treatment for the bed is wonderfully different. I would love to work in Europe for a few years. Its always been a dream of mine.

The layering in that first image is just perfection. The warmth, the kind of space!

I loved the fabric behind the bed. I love a fabric covered wall. Free hanging you could change it, and clean it. I'll have to visit the blog to see how she did that.

What a gorgeous view.

I hope you'll have a chance to stop by Splendid Market. We are having a great giveaway.

I was lucky enough to do the plan and plantings for a Georgetown rooftop garden in an apartment they redid, she has AMAZING style! Luxe AND Lucid for sure! *Amy

This post makes me feel like a bad shallow person because all I'm thinking about is how I can assume her identity, a la The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Impeccable styling. With the last photo, I can stay the whole day or more on that same spot. What an amazing sceneries.

i like the bed and the bedside table a lot, the way the lamps have been posted is cool, the furniture is very good, very sober and vintage looking

Michelle -

Thank you so much for featuring my Swiss project on your oh-so-chic blog. I love all the comments! flattery will get you everywhere with me. It really was a dream project in so many ways - the client, the location, etc. And the view is truly AMAZING. I can't tell you how many times I stepped outside and had to pinch myself.

Tricia xo
