The Little Lakeside Cabin We'd Like to Escape To
Nestled in the woods of Lake Tahoe, this compact cabin's warm glow ushers guests to come on in after a lazy day of splashing around cool waters and warming up by the bonfire. From the outside, it looks straight out of a summer camp movie set -- but step inside, and you'll be blown away by its casual modern-coastal style.
Sunny Cook Space
Even the most classic, beautiful white kitchens can benefit from a jolt of color. Here, blue and gray accents, eye-catching appliances, and wood countertops keep the cook space looking smart.
Pops of Color
The cabin's interior is all about warm neutrals of sand and stone, but glossy cobalt makes a big splash on the sleek fridge-freezer unit in the kitchenette. A butcher-block table offers extra prep and dining space.
With expansive windows and panoramic views of the outdoors, it's hard to tell where the cabin ends and the wood begins. Wide-plank floors and hefty wood beams overhead wrap this light-filled dining room in rustic charm.
Thrifted treasures can become the coolest centerpieces. A toy canoe serves as one-of-a-kind utensil storage. Pair it with a wooden serving tray and a pretty, flower-filled vase, and you have an eye-catching tablescape.
With soft linens in sandy neutrals and bright blues, it's easy to start the day smiling. Barn-style doors and horizontal planks of wood wrap this bright, cottagey bedroom in casual elegance, while a woven headboard and sculptural wood table add texture and warmth.
Natural light floods every corner of the tiny cabin, whose blue-painted ceilings and nautical motifs bottle up the sweetest, most nostalgic bits of summer. Here, a gray-washed steamer chest in the bedroom adds industrial-style storage in the bedroom.
The bedroom and bath are filled with beautiful, unexpected textures. Here, chunky soapstone counters are paired with skinny subway tile and soft linens. Colorful oversize knobs give blue cabinetry a playful edge.
No summer retreat is complete without a campfire to gather round after the sun goes down. This fire pit plays a fun role as the postdinner hangout spot for gooey s'mores and camp-style sing-alongs.
