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.
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.
This beautiful Colorado home is situated on Upper Bear Creek. As landscape designers started mapping out the outdoor spaces, they wanted to show off and work harmoniously with the location's natural beauty.
At a mere 400 square feet (of enclosed space), this tiny cabin actually meets the size requirements to be considered a park model RV. With gorgeous cedar wood siding and an impressive prairie-style design, the cozy home belongs in its own category.
Decatur is known for its distinct, historic neighborhoods, eclectic food, and vibrant downtown: it is not known for log cabins. My clients are the owners of this unlikely urban retreat and wanted to design a space that provided a TV-free zone to read, relax, eat, and play games as a family. This little reading nook is my favorite vignette. It is my client's favorite spot in the house. She has her morning coffee there daily. The chair was hers but the shelves were added to have storage and interest go up the wall and showcase their family pictures and items I sourced in flea markets all over Atlanta! The pouf and blanket were "must haves" from the very beginning.
Rustic materials and contemporary lines combine for a striking take on the classic cabin. Behind the cabin, the dense forest offers natural tranquility, and in front of the cabin, a lush yard offers a spot for outdoor activity.
