Clean, elevated and edgy design is how Alicia Lichtenstein and Eva Muller characterized their work. The two experts met while working for the influential designer, Ken Fulk, and soon decided to join forces and open their own firm, Studio Heimat, in 2015, located in San Francisco, California. The designers are leading residential, commercial, and hospitality projects, and they still manage to innovate. A growing team of designers that work alongside with some of the greatest architects, builders, and artisans in order to create spaces that will reflect who the client is.
Among so many remarkable projects, a special mountain getaway design, located in Engelberg, Switzerland, immediately caught our attention! No wonder why they nailed this residential project“Hailing from the beautiful country of Switzerland, Eva had both a picturesque and an academically rigorous upbringing.” Unfortunately, we’ve been facing tough times, and we definitely need to bring extra calm, comfort and serenity to our house, that is why the team of Inspirations Blog selected this project.

This is the truth feeling of Heimat.
Like we said before, you don’t need to be living in a ski chalet or country retreat to have the perfect rustic mountain getaway. The design firm managed to bring rustic elements into this project and weave it in with the existing décor. The key elements are definitely warm textures and tones, worn leather, and then, layer, layer, layer. The design experts kept the palette complimentary to get these cozy cabin vibes.
Reclaimed wood walls are the ultimate hallmark of rustic design, but in this space, the fireplace gives the room a decidedly modern edge.

The fireplace is surrounded by a collection of mid-century furniture, and it makes it feel extra cozy and layered.
It is interesting how they can manage to add an eclectic touch to their rustic décor, such as this gallery wall.

A farmhouse bathroom is both modern and rustic. Here you can see that the traditionally rustic elements are kept fresh and modern with an all-brown palette. The forest wallpaper gives the space some depth and contrast. Actually, you don’t have to go overboard with accessories or décor – focus on simplicity and keep the natural and raw look.
This cozy leather armchair will make us want to curl up in all winter! The design experts took advantage of all the negative space, for example, this area underneath the wood staircase, to create a relaxing corner where the client can read its book.
Last, but not least, one of the most important areas of the house for the past months: the office. Fur-like textures were the designers top choice for this space.
