Don’t be afraid of placing furniture in front of window. If it’s not a bulky piece, and has an open bottom like this wheeled side table, it’ll work because natural light will still be able to flow into the room. The open cog-wheel on set of lamps also allow daylight to shine through. The beefy wood-plank dining table and bench work perfectly with the industrial side table and sisal rug.
Kids can enjoy both the indoors and outdoors in the playroom. Sliding glass doors offer access to outside, where kids can drive their power wheels and play house. Bean bags scatter the room to provide a place to sit, and a cushioned bench doubles as toy storage to keep the space organized.
In the foyer of this cozy, yet spacious cabin retreat, a sliding barn door and wood-paneled walls introduce visitors to the home's rustic ambiance from the moment they step inside.

A wagon wheel-style chandelier adds sparkle while keeping with the cozy cabin feel.
