Haus Heidi Whistler: Woodland Suite

Green and white bedroom

Infuse Your Bedroom with Character and Inspirations

From inspiration to reality: a design story set in British Columbia's mountains where hikes featuring lush greens, verdant views and towering trees led to a bedroom suite design that embraces its woodsy environs with layers of green in a painterly palette.

Make your bedroom your favourite escape and the ultimate expression of YOU! In this episode of Design Life, we'll show you how to bring your inspirations to life and infuse your bedroom with the character you crave. Watch as we take you behind the design of 4 totally unique guest suites at Haus Heidi, our newly renovated luxury modern alpine chalet rental as seen on HGTV Canada's Sarah's Mountain Escape!
