    • All in the Family

      Vacation treasures mix with family portraits in this cozy cabin-style living room. Flea market finds include a wooden bucket that holds firewood, an antler plaque, and a cow's head dinner bell that hangs below the mantel. Painted shiplap walls pair effortlessly with natural wood flooring to complete the homey atmosphere.

       

      Inspiring Decorating Ideas
    • Urban Retreat

      Whitewashed beams and trusses brighten this country cabin kitchen. Barnwood flooring visually warms the open space, while handblown glass pendants above the modern marble island create magical light. 

       

    • Timeworn Touches

      This lodgelike dining room features a picnic-style table flanked by upholstered wingback chairs that add formality without fuss. A rugged stone hearth and rustic barnwood ceiling boards showcase natural textures and reclaimed materials.

       

    • Whimsical and Woodsy

      An iron bed beckons guests to snuggle under a generous bounty of mismatched linens, including a duvet fashioned from vintage woodland fabric. Buffalo-check lampshades and embroidered pillows add texture to the wood-clad bedroom.

       

    • Lakeside Getaway

      A 1950s bathing suit and oar personalize a shared bath in this revamped bunkhouse. Flea market bathroom signs, an antique towel box, and a nautical wooden stool create a casual camp look. 

       

    • Room with a View

      Transom windows wrap this cabinlike den in light and offer expansive waterfront views. A built-in sofa allows guests to spread a blanket, stretch out, and bask in the sun. Bamboo floors, a stone fireplace, and cedar ceilings warm the generous expanse of white. 

       

    • Comfort Meets Color

      Vaulted cathedral ceilings accented with recycled barn beams lend a lofty air in this casual dining room. A farm table takes center stage among pale green floors and cabinetry. Turquoise dining chairs continue the "comfort-above-all-else" attitude.

       

      Add Color With Paint
    • Get the Look: Raw Wood

      Bring the trend of raw wood into your home, whether your style is rustic or modern!

    • New Meets Old

      Salvaged wood creates a warm backdrop for an antique iron bed. A vibrant throw and printed pillows energize the vintage frame. A natural grass rug anchors the room, while funky painted antlers fashioned into hooks contribute contemporary flair.

      Breezy Living

      There's no better place to relax in the summertime than on a screen porch. This outdoor room features a soothing blue-gray color scheme as well as wicker furniture stuffed with plush pillows. A pair of oars and an oversize animal painting exude a weathered look thanks to their aged patinas.

      Free Spirit

      Cool blues and nautical themes imbue this living room with lakefront authenticity. The coffee table is made from anchors, while the royal blue rug repeats the watery motif. Old beams frame the doorway, and ebony window trim frames the outdoor views.

      Curated Charm

      Hand-carved beams salvaged from a collapsed barn create this entryway bench that serves as a convenient seat to slip off muddy shoes. The woven basket and sign are flea market finds; the pillow covers are made from feed sacks.

      Rustic Blend

      Pale blues and greens thread throughout this informal country-cabin eating area. The hushed palette, as well as pattern-free fabrics on seating, allows individual elements to emerge, including a 1700s lantern, rich farm-style table, and an antique cupboard bearing its original paint.

      Garden Gathering

      This screen porch sounds as charming as it looks with a new tin roof that captures every pitter-patter of rain. A collection of mix-and-match bistro chairs provides plenty of seating around the rustic wood table. A candelabrum chandelier, paper lanterns, and leaf ceiling fan set the mood from dawn through dusk.

      Modern Mix

      A gorgeous stone hearth and natural textiles make this humble den the perfect place to relax after dinner. A large mirror over the mantel reflects light and helps the room feel larger. New oak hardwood floors unite the open floor plan with the surrounding rooms.

      Summer Camp Style

      A rope-wrapped bed frame and matching lamps add texture to this cabin-inspired bedroom. Quirky antique accessories, including a jukebox radio and wooden camp sign, stand out against shiplap and recycled barnwood walls.

      Practical Style

      Creating a cabin-inspired look doesn't have to be cutesy nor contrived. Stray from the norm with a coat of deep blue-gray paint that hides scuffs and dirt in high-traffic areas. This mudroom further incorporates functionality with a groutless tile floor, built-in storage bench, and plenty of coat hooks.

      Light and Airy

      A shingled wall in a converted sunporch replicates the look and feel of a quaint cottage cabin. Botanical artwork and bright bed linens pop against furniture that boasts plentry of patina.

      Carefree Attitude

      Painted shiplap walls stay true to the architecture of old lake cottages. Combine them with reclaimed barn beams and hardwood floors stained the color of driftwood for a casual cabin atmosphere. A peaceful, easy feeling extends to this dining room's blue-and-white palette and fun, nautical-style lighting.

      Private Getaway

      Barnwood shelves and base cabinets topped with black honed granite detail this cabin office. A factory table from London serves as a desk; its metal provides visual relief from the rough-hewn wood cabinetry and ceiling beams.

      New Wave

      Prevent a cabin-style room from becoming too literal with a contemporary accent color. Here, a modern red floral pattern featured on several throw pillows and a cozy club chair balance a woven seagrass rug and crisp white siding.

      Cozy Enclave

      A brick fireplace with a steamship-pipe chimney makes this sunken living room a comfortable place to curl up after a day on the lake. An antique travel trunk stands in as a distinctive coffee table, while vibrant velvet upholstery adds soft texture.

      Summertime Dreams

      A screened porch with gentle blue painted floors offers a relaxing haven for warm summer days. Hudson Bay blanket-covered cushions give new life to a wicker rocker. Badminton rackets serve as decoration above a weathered hutch stuffed with books and board games. (The rackets can be removed for play!)
