White and Feminine Cabin Living Room


Here's another unique cabin design, using a monochromatic color palette, with white as its primary color.  I think the wall that the fireplace sits on is definitely one of the most unique walls I've seen in awhile.  It looks like real stone that's been covered with a thin coat of some sort of Spackle or something.  I have no idea, but I like it.  It's probably not for everybody, but I think it's different and refreshing.  I also like the furnishings used in this space.  They are soft and feminine and have a sophisticated look to them.  They almost have a hint of pink in them. 
It's also been decorated or staged in such a way to keep your eye moving from place to place around the room, by use of repeated colors, textures and shapes.   How many times do you see the color green in this room?  How about how often are plush fur items used in this room?  They did a good job keeping your eyes entertained when they designed this room.

Stack Em Up!


Now, isn't this an interesting find!?  What a strange house!  Of course I like it because I'm a bit odd myself.  But seriously, where else have you ever seen a house stacked up like this?  I bet the inside is interesting and small.  It looks like it has minimal furnishings inside.  Or maybe it's just on display for people to come visit, and only has a few things inside.  What I like best about this structure is its geometric design.  A close second is the use of the rich dark wood in its construction.  My least favorite things would be its location out in the middle of a pile of rocks, and how many stairs I'd have to go up and down on any given day!
Well, hope you enjoyed this unique building as much as I did.

Spacious and Stylish Cabin Great Room*



I really love this cabin great room!  I give it a 10 out of 10 for design style. It has an interesting mix of fabrics, accessories and lighting options.  It is so complete and flawless in its design, that it was probably done by an interior designer.  It's just too perfect not to be...
I love all the different things going on in this room.  Your eye is constantly finding something new and interesting to look at.  I like the different textures used too, not only in the construction of the walls and fireplace, but also in the furniture and accents.
I especially enjoy the lighting in this room because there is a lot of it, which makes it more inviting.  Lighting is very important in design, arguably the most important thing.  It rates as high in importance as the layout and size of your home. There are so many options for lighting nowadays.  They have definitely gotten more creative in recent years.  I like these lamps because they're made using natural materials like real branches.

And this table lamp is so original and unique! I've never seen another one like it!

So, there are limitless options for decorating your home if you shop online.  You can find items for any style you are going for, and save a lot of time doing so.  If you're decorating your cabin, just type up "cabin decor" or if you have a beach house, try "beach decor" or "lake house decor".  They usually have a large selection of furnishings and accessories to choose from because they buy from many different suppliers so you don't have to go looking in a bunch of different places to furnish your home.

Dark Cabin Bathroom - Love This!


I am in love with this non-traditional cabin bathroom!!! It breaks all the rules, as far as regular bathroom design goes!  Most bathrooms are bright and white, which gives a feeling of openness.  This bathroom is dark and mysterious and feels somewhat closed in and cozy.  I like how they used luxurious materials in the design.  It looks expensive.  I enjoy the tub area, with it's tile work and shelving.  It showcases the candles in a great way.  And that sink is to Die For!!!  It is so unique and interesting!  I don't think I've ever seen a tub quite like it either, with its shelving on the outside of it for towels etc.  They could even put something decorative in there, to add to the personality of the space.

Unique and Modern Cabin Home in the Mountains

This modern cabin is cool for a few reasons.  One, it has an interesting design to it, with its high pitched roof and numerous windows. Two, it didn't demolish the landscape and wilderness in the building process, which is always a good thing.  Preserving the land around your home is important.  My third and final point is that the layout is unique.  It's not your traditional style home. I like that the materials used are varied and different colors and textures etc.  And on a side note, it also has great lighting!! 
The only thing I don't like about this home is its location, high up in the mountains, where there's lots of snow.

Cabin Great Room with Antler Chandelier


I think this is a beautiful great room. I like the mantle above the fireplace and the picture is slightly appealing.  I like the way they have the room decorated too.  That dark blue couch is interesting and unique.  I also like the leather one.  The throw pillows are pretty nice too.

I also like the lighter colored wood used in the walls instead of the traditional darker tones.  They also made sure that there was a variety of colors in their decorating, so you don't get bored.
My favorite thing about the room is the backgammon game on the large wood coffee table. Well, the antler chandelier is pretty great too! 

Just kind of an average and understated room overall, but with some great statement pieces, possibly heirlooms, which are priceless!

Deluxe Cabin Bathroom


I enjoy this log cabin bathroom because there is a large tub with rock work and pillars, with a fireplace right next to it to keep you warm.  Anytime a bathroom has a fireplace, I'm game.  I almost missed the beautiful stained glass windows behind the tub.  They are gorgeous.  I think that the only way this bathtub could be better is if the back of the bathtub had a fountain trickling down the rocks.  I am not sure about the light fixture hanging above the tub though.  Do you really need or want a chandelier hanging above your tub of water?  Doesn't seem too safe to me.  But anyhow, I liked this bathroom enough to post it.

Cabin Statement Wall with Art*


Here is a cute little "staged" cabin room.  Even though it's just an advertisement for Hobby Lobby (I LOVE HOBBY LOBBY!!!! but am not affiliated with them in any way...), it still has some great decorating ideas. It has a great use of color, which is my favorite thing about this wall.  I like the green "fishing supplies" rack, which is the perfect shade of green in my opinion and a great place to hang your fishing items. I like the barn wood wall paneling and the ladder up against the wall. I like the red lantern on the table and matching thermos on the table. The colors were very intentional in this photo. I like the wall art too. It's very "cabiny".

Cabin art tends to be more fun and relaxed.  I found these pieces at an online store and thought they were fun.

Beautiful Cabin Bathroom


I love this bathroom for some reason!  Maybe it's the pale colored woods used in this space that gives it a lighter, softer feel.  Well, the lighting probably helps. Natural sunlight is a huge help in brightening up a space and can't really be replicated easily.  Any artificial light on the market is going to be slightly different than natural sunlight, but there are bulbs that claim to be more natural looking and it's probably worth the time to search these out if that is the look you are wanting to achieve.
The lighting features they used here are pretty great too.  The chandelier over the beautiful bronze tub is wonderfully accented by a couple of sconces by the windows.  The sinks have some quaint lamp style sconces as well.  The water faucet for the sink matches the tub, which is a nice touch.  It's always a subtle design choice when you can match metals throughout a room or even the whole house, but is worth the trouble because it gives the home a feeling of continuity or unity..  Like if you choose brushed nickel for all kitchen door and cabinet pulls, it can really unify the space.
Overall, I think this room was wonderfully executed in color scheme, materials used, and the rustic chic design they chose. Let me know what you think!
