CABIN DECORATING & DESIGN IDEAS

Cabin Decorating

Rustic Home Design

There is distinct diversity in the many approaches one can take to achieve a rustic feel to any given space. The trend leans closely toward rustic utilitarian, with a surge of interest towards clean lines, natural materials and ‘pared-down’ decor. If you are looking to add a subtle rustic influence into your home, rustic accessories do work well incorporated into contemporary design. The new rustic provides for a fresh interpretation with the pairing of reclaimed wood and natural elements with existing modern pieces. By pairing an eclectic mix of textured fabrics and materials with a sophisticated color palette, a beautifully designed rustic room can be achieved with minimal effort…[read more]

Rustic Kitchens

Rustic Kitchens

Hello everyone! I have recently returned home from working on a design project in Palm Springs that began with collecting a series of beautiful images of rustic, farm-house and country kitchens for design inspiration. I often use images in order to kick-start the whole brain-storming process, and it’s a productive and enjoyable way to capture the essence of what the home owner hopes to achieve. The home had been completely gutted, and we were looking to create harmony between both contemporary and rustic design elements. I thought it would be a great idea to share the images as a source of inspiration for those looking to create a rustic or country kitchen in their…[read more]

Rustic Christmas

Rustic Christmas

Whether you have a lovely cabin in the woods or a home in the city, adding a rustic touch to your Christmas decor can create a warm and inviting holiday retreat. Rustic accents can easily be incorporated by adding natural accents, such as filling a hurricane or glass bowl mixed with seasonal fruits and greens, mixed nuts, pine cones and Christmas ornaments. I’ve provided an extensive collection of rustic Christmas decorating images for inspiration and ideas. One of my favorite Christmas centerpieces make use of gorgeous red roses and berries. Simple, elegant and works best surrounded by greenery and gold candles. Lit branches, pine cones and bark create an earthy-rustic feel…[read more]

Design Done Right

As an interior designer who has been in the log home industry for over 15 years, I have had the pleasure of viewing rustic design at its best.  The log home shown above was built by Sitka Log Homes of BC, and  is a great example of exceptional log work as well as the use of complimentary colors for the outdoor furniture and decor. I think finding an interior designer or builder that specializes in this form of design is often difficult, and so my first page in this blog will be dedicated to adding the work of those that I have found to be inspiring. It is my hope that it will assist those who love all things rustic in decorating their own homes. If you would like to contact the design… [read more]

Rustic Bedrooms

Rustic Bedrooms

I thought I would kick off the new year by sharing my collection of rustic bedrooms. Over the years, I have compiled a large selection of rustic bedroom images from very rugged log cabin bedrooms and bunk houses to elegant rustic bedroom suites. Also included are samples of gorgeous rustic bedding and rustic bedroom furniture from Black Forest Decor that work well in any rustic bedroom design. I hope they inspire you in creating your own rustic sanctuary. In a second-floor guest room of Jill Rappaport’s Hamptons log house, the structure of a large dormer provides the perfect nook for a log bed and a pair of Adirondack-style tables. The cowboy-boot lamps are vintage and, like a number of other objects in the house, were found by…[read more]
