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. Red chairs were the pop that this space needed. The table was custom made and can expand for guests. We lined store-bought curtains to make them look higher end and put a roman shade of the same material over the large kitchen sink. It pulls it all together. It's a cabin, yes, but that does not mean every detail needs to be rustic!
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.

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.

The loft-like living space in this Alaska vacation retreat is at home among the treetops and, in fact, was envisioned as a "treehouse for adults." The exposed wood and open plan were chosen to complement the setting and provide uninterrupted views of the surrounding mountains and forest. Furnishings pull from the natural, woodsy palette.
This backyard renovation included the installation of a 100-foot stream down one side of the property and landscaping meant to give the feeling of a woodland escape. Says HGTV fan lross7577, "We don't have to travel far from our suburban home outside the city of Minneapolis to get a wonderful cabin retreat experience. We just walk out our back door."
Soft grays mix with the natural wood tones in this rustic, yet modern cabin retreat.

Windows are strategically placed to allow the chef to enjoy the view while working at the cooking station or sink.
