You don't need to be living in a ski chalet or country retreat to get that rustic cabin aesthetic. You can bring in rustic elements into your own home and weave it in with your existing décor. And with winter around the corner, we thought it's only appropriate to show you how to get the cozy, lived-in look, even if you reside in a beach house or in a big city high-rise apartment. The key elements are warm textures and tones, worn leather, and as many nods to the great outdoors as you can manage. Then, layer, layer, layer. Just be sure to keep the palette complimentary, and you’ll be feeling those cozy cabin vibes in no time.
