Mix Old with New

Cabin décor does not need to make you think that it is limited to vintage or classic ideas. Keep your wood furnishings and/or fireplace (that are signature items of the cabin look), but bring trendy items into the room too, such as television units or modern furniture. In this way the cabin feeling receives a fashionable spin while still maintaining its roots in vintage charm.

Stones and Wood Create Cabin Magic

Using stones in décor is a great way to make a living space appear rustic and interesting. When combined with wood, stones (such as in the case of a stone wall) bring the cabin décor idea to life.

Lighter Tones of Wood Brighten Things up

Darker tones of wood are not everyone’s cup of tea, and just because you’re designing a room that contains cabin-inspired décor it doesn’t mean that you should be forced to use richer wood tones. Lighter wood is perfect for modern spaces. They make a room brighter and help them appear larger than they are, yet still convey the warmth associated with cabins.

Cabins that Charm.
