A cabin in the woods is a dream for us all, especially during the holiday season. Nothing compares to the feeling of escape it provides. Indeed, just looking at this modern cabin spurs a sigh of relief. Every element, from the wood-planked walls to the classic pitched ceiling, makes this space a haven for relaxation and cooking up a hardy meal. Both things we all could use a little more of in life, wouldn't you agree? Just check out our tips for getting the look in your own home. A cabin in the woods may be a distant dream, but the rewards could be a nearer than you think.
You don't have to call a realtor to find a cozy kitchen. The signature design feature of a cabin is wood-paneled walls, which can easily be faked in any space. Anthropologie's Stikwood Wall Covering is a revelation in faux finishing. A thin piece or reclaimed wood can be adhered to your wall in seconds, thanks to a simple peel-and-stick application. Doing so will add architectural interest to your space, and save you time hunting down that perfect property in the woods.
If you haven't gotten on board with this kitchen design trend yet, it's about time to buy your ticket. The trend? Omitting all upper cabinets and keeping storage compartments strictly sub-countertop. Not only does this create more open space in the room, but it also allows for floating shelves to display your most prized kitchen essentials.
The art of the mix n' match is a fine one. When a carefully curated collection of dining chairs comes together, it's truly something to stand up for. Get the look of this room's assemblage, by pairing un-upholstered wooden chairs with similar lines. In this case, carved details and turned legs are swapped out for midcentury interpretations of the classic Windsor chair. The result? The entire space is an interpretation of the classic cabin, one we won't forget.
