Das Kranzbach: Glamor in the Bavarian Alps

Designed by Ilse Crawford, the Das Kranzbach spa hotel in the Bavarian Alps features an unlikely mix of elements (Tyrolean chairs with George Nelson bubble lamps?). Somehow it all works.

Crawford has revamped the interiors using her signature mix of unexpected color combinations and daring furniture mashups.

Traditional Windsor dining chairs seem fashionable when painted glossy red. How does she do it?
