Having your own cabin is like having an escape from your daily life, where you can go to unplug, unwind, and rejuvenate your spirit. For some, it’s not how the cabin looks but rather how it feels when you walk in. For others, their private retreat needs to reflect their passions.
When it comes to deciding upon a design scheme for your cabin, there are plenty of themes to choose from. Here are four fan favorites to spark some inspiration.
Keep it quaint with a country rustic theme that requires nothing more than a few old throw pillows and quilts. Consider getting a prefab cabin (learn more at Riverwood Cabins) and keeping the walls unpainted to showcase the natural wood elements and bring the outdoors in. Chintz and gingham fabrics, uplifting colors, and countryesque decor elements will make this cabin your humble home away from home.
If you like the country rustic decor but want to add a sense of style, use treated barn boards with cast iron finished brackets for shelving, incorporate a bold table into your eating area, and, and steer away from gingham and chintz for something solid and muted. Milk paint can add a vintage country look to cabinets if the raw wood becomes overwhelming.
If your cabin doubles as a coastal cottage, embrace the sea air and incorporate seashore related elements into your decor. Consider whitewashing your walls and incorporating bold blues into your furniture and accessories. Change things up with a seafoam green ceiling to add color. Add your favorite photos of the beach and sheer curtains around the windows to catch the breeze and add movement to your relaxation space.
For lighting, use mason jar lamps with sand inside or rope adhered to the side. You can even create a lamp using beach glass collected from the shoreline near your cabin. The main idea behind this decor scheme is keeping things fresh and fluid, like the water.
Creating a writer’s retreat style cabin is perfect for the creative minds and bookworms who are looking for a doorway to a different world. To pull this decor style off, you’re going to need shelving: lots of it. Bring books with you each time you visit and use them to fill the shelves once you’re done with them. If you’re the sole booklover in your house, your family will appreciate them being relocated from your family home.
Comfort and ambiance are key with a writer’s retreat style cabin. Overstuffed, comfortable couches and chairs in front of a fireplace, with ornate lamps that create a warm atmosphere, are paramount. Rich fabrics, comfortable blankets, and an old-fashioned kettle for making coffee or tea will provide everything you need to get lost in the pages of a book.
Similar to the writer’s retreat style, this cabin decor theme incorporates elements you love from the fairytales you grew up with. Incorporate a lot of earthy elements, like stone and moss. Put time into cultivating a garden of wildflowers out front, using stackers to create a small enclosure around your cabin. Curved, shutter-style doors add a whimsical touch to the interior while matching the windows.
Twinkling fairy lights in bell jars and paintings of mythical landscapes create a magical atmosphere where you can hide from the real-life wicked witches and monsters you experience on a daily basis. Don’t forget to add a shelf with ornate, hardcover copies of your favorite stories.
Whether you decide on one of these themes or a mish-mash of everything your family loves, decorate your cabin to create a space where you can get lost, or maybe find yourself. Having this area to escape to will drastically improve your well-being.
