Have you ever wondered, what is it exactly that makes a mountain cabin cozy and warm? Is it the stunning setting, rustic decor, time spent with family and friends, or the appreciation for the small things in life? We think it's a combination of all of the above. With ski season right around the corner, now is the perfect time to think about cabin decorating ideas. Don't have a cabin? No problem. These decor ideas will also bring that cozy cabin feeling to your home.
Our ultimate cabin decor is that perfect mixture of rustic and refined. The furniture and decor create an inviting environment that family and friends never want to leave. The living area should have lots of seating options. We like to mix antiques with natural wood elements. The mixture of wood with leather is especially gorgeous.
Wildlife decor is the perfect compliment to a rustic cabin. Get the look by incorporating wildlife art or decorating with antlers and mounts.
Dramatic pieces like antler chandeliers add a touch of luxurious glamor to your cabin decor. This look is especially beautiful if you have high ceilings.
This one would look great in a smaller space.
Antlers aren't just for chandeliers. They can be incorporated into cabin decor in many ways. From antler mounts to decorative accessories. This look is so on trend.
One of the easiest ways to add that cozy cabin feeling is to incorporate soft textures. Think chunky knits, faux fur and luxe cashmere and wool.
Another simple addition with a huge impact is candles. A small investment in candles will go a long way. The warming glow of candlelight is perfect for escaping the season's chill. We love the added ambience that scented candles bring. The Thymes Fraser Fir line is especially fitting with it's crisp pine scent.
One of the best ways to make your cabin decor pop is to incorporate vintage skis, poles, sleds, snowshoes and skates. This is also great for bringing the feeling of the mountains into a city home. Hang vintage skis on the wall as a statement piece or decorate with ski prints and artwork.
The ultimate cabin accessory is a fireplace. Nothing says cozy like a roaring fire! If you don't have a fireplace you can get a similar feeling by adding a stack or a basket filled with a few pieces of wood. Stringing lights around a stack of wood is also a sweet idea.
It's the simple things in your cabin decor that make the difference. A coffee/tea/hot chocolate bar is a great addition. It lets your family and friends know that this is a place where they can relax and allow time to slow down. Our in-store coffee bar is one of the ways we like to welcome our guests.
