    Default A Swiss Penthouse Overlooking the Alps


    Christophe Margot for The New York Times
    This two-bedroom two-bath penthouse apartment is on the market in Chernex, a village overlooking Montreux on Lake Geneva, for 3.2 million Swiss francs ($4 million.) The Venetian stone floor tiles in the living room are heated.

    oh god no. did they buy their entire home decor at a swiss souvenir shop?
    hate the cow print, hate that every framed poster looks like it came from the same place, hate the beds, hate the sofas, hate all the furniture and i really hate the recessed lights.
    that said, nice view. i'd take it and redecorate. although it is kind of in the middle of nowhere (chernex, a village above montreux).

    Agree with you all- the house can be redecorated. The view is awesome!

    What is wrong with these people?? Holstein print furniture, cheap crap posters, skin rugs? I HATE almost everything in it; even the views would not be worth it if I had to keep the decor.
