The days are getting shorter and the nights a bit cooler. As you settle in for a season of frigid temps and prodigious snowfall, try beating the usual winter doldrums with an interior transformation. We love a cabin theme, where rich textures and luxurious comfort combine to create a space that exudes warmth that will ward off even the coldest winter chill.
Whether you’re thinking of a full-scale overhaul or you want to focus your efforts on one particular area of your home, here are some easily adaptable ideas and suggestions to get the (snow)ball rolling.
Let natural textures tell the story
Wood is an indelible hallmark of any self-respecting cabin, and incorporating it judiciously is crucial to achieving the bucolic charm you desire. Furniture crafted from quarter-sawn lumber offers increased durability, better moisture resistance and a finer, more consistent grain.
Knotty woodKnotty wood offers a less refined, but equally beautiful finish. It is accentuated on these tables with planked tops and block legs.
Slate accentsSlate accents are another way to incorporate natural elements. They provide an ideal counterpoint to the beauty of natural wood grain.
Salvaged wood and distressed finishes are another way to add drama and visual intrigue, heightening the allure of solid wood construction with unique touches that lend a classic, timeworn appearance.
The Melrose collection from Progressive Furniture is crafted from salvaged pine solids. Its imperfections — a rough-hewn texture, indentations and distressing — are celebrated, not discouraged. The result is a look and feel as inviting as it is unique.
By contrast, Aspenhome’s Spruce Bay collection has a more polished appearance. The beauty of solid spruce is accentuated with subtle distressing, giving these bedroom pieces a singular sense of character.
Leather furniture is a natural fit in any cabin setting. Its plush cushioning and incredible comfort are perfect for dozing on a cold, winter day.
The rich tones of leather are not only handsome, but also versatile. They complement a wide range of accessories, making it easy to transform the landscape of a room with minimal effort.
Heat without the hassle
For a uniquely dynamic presence, consider an electric fireplace. They are safe, clean, low maintenance and a great low-energy option that can dramatically lower your winter heating bill.
Electric fireplaces offer incredible ambiance with realistic LED flames and are controlled by remote for the ultimate in convenience. They can even be operated without heat, offering year-round enjoyment.
