The siting of this rustic home offeres commanding views of some of the most dramatic scenery in the world. The home is visually engaging from both the exterior and interior because of the exposed nature of the site.
The new mudroom has hooks, storage, and a place for everyone's things. The polished concrete floors help contain the mess and make for an easy clean, while the bench gives the family an easy space to take off their dirty shoes.
Two stories, three garages, lots of picturesque outdoor areas...in this cabin's case, secluded does not mean deprived. The arts-and-crafts architecture helps the house to blend with its forest surroundings and makes it a fascinating creation in its own right.
When the homeowners of this rustic cabin on Lake Lure in North Carolina decided to make the weekend retreat their full-time home, the kitchen and outdoor spaces had to be improved. One of the renovations: A timber arbor frames the new front door which welcomes guests and provides a visual transition into the peaceful retreat.
Enjoy your cabin days in style! This cozy cabin features country white wall paneling and cabinet doors in the bathroom and red toile fabric for the adjoining bedroom. The folding shutter window dressing and decorative plate wall art add charisma and charm to an already adorable palette.
“I’ve always imagined spending a snow-filled Christmas in a cozy mountain cabin, so I decided to pretend that’s where we were hanging out when I created this tablescape,” says Katie Nathey of Mountain Modern Life.
“Most of the table decor came from shopping our home,” Nathey says, “such as the vintage Mason jars and candle holders.” The napkins were made out of leftover fabric, and she added liquid gold leaf to glam up thrifted glasses.
