An unadorned dresser keeps a low profile at the foot of the bed and makes room for a mounted flat-screen. Below, a knobbly area rug anchors the space, while sheer window panels soften the bright windows.
Getaways are all about comfort and here, the lounging begins before guests even get through the door. The white, wood furniture pops against the dark gravel of the driveway and the moody color of the lodge itself. As Pflug says, “The color story here started with the outside of the building. I knew I wanted to paint it a kind of dark, off-black color. It looks so amazing next to the greens of nature. Everything else just came from there.”
The homeowners outfitted the space with a super comfortable low-profile sectional so multiple guests can curl up with a good book or watch a movie on days when it’s too cold to go exploring. The sofa is also deep enough to serve as an extra guest bed, in a pinch. Plenty of blankets are provided and a vintage trunk serves as a coffee table – ideal for storing luggage. Nordic décor isn’t just beautiful, it’s often useful and flexible.
Trunk Club's Maggie Mee has three tips to business travelers to consider when packing for a work trip. "1. Don't wear your jacket or third piece while in flight. Gently fold and place on the top of your carry on. 2. Wear lightweight layers to help hide wrinkles and make sure that you're comfortable while in flight. Patterned fabrics also hide the look of wrinkles. 3. Bring a small bottle of wrinkle release spray in your carry on to remove any wrinkles that might have developed on the plane. If you'll have time to check into your hotel, you might also think about bringing a small steamer to freshen up your look." In addition, if you want to be comfortable and fresh for arrival, Mee recommends a change of costume during the travel portion of your trip. "I'd also encourage you to switch up your footwear from flight to meeting. A pair of flats or sneakers are perfect for getting through airport security and keeping you comfortable and can be quickly swapped out for a pair of heels, boots or dress shoes when you arrive at your final destination."
