Located in the Bernese Oberland, the 200-year-old Swiss chalet housing this blue-hued reading nook was lovingly restored by Bergdorf and Nick Ruef. The space has maintained its old, wooden bones, but has been given a contemporary face-lift with splashes of mint paint, spartan furniture, and modern lighting, like the lamp seen here.
