This lovely little chalet, tucked away in the snowy pine forests of the Savoy area of France, hides an easy going contemporary space behind its traditional facade. Wouldn't this be a wonderful winter retreat over the holidays? More (in French) here. Via Marie Claire Maison.

The holidays can be a difficult time for some of us, which is why I believe it's so important to take the time to help those in need — in big ways and small. Whether you donate to a local or international charity, help out at a soup kitchen, babysit so a frazzled mom can get some holiday shopping done, or call and/or visit the elderly or ill, it's through these gestures that we truly celebrate the spirit of the season. Happy holidays!
