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.
We got rid of the draperies and painted the windows gray for a more open and modern feel. A new mantle and all new furniture made for a refreshed and now usable space!
At night, ample windows and carefully planned exterior lighting turn this mountain cabin into a warm, welcoming beacon for its owners and guests. The project was a cabin retreat for the owners and their siblings and extended families in Jackson Hole. The owners wanted a log cabin but also wanted modern conveniences. The resulting design features a frame construction with log accents and siding, and the house is packed with space but has a cozy cabin feel.
A breezeway helps fit this rustic-modern cabin retreat to its natural site in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The project was a cabin retreat for the owners and their siblings and extended families, with the idea that they’d gather at the home on various occasions. That meant the family needed both private and communal spaces so everyone would feel at home and relaxed. The house is packed with space but has a cozy cabin feel.
A bunkroom maximizes space in this cozy, yet spacious cabin retreat. The house serves as a vacation home for the owners and their extended family, with plenty of space for family members to come together or relax in privacy. In this cozy kids' space, sleeping bunks mix with open spaces filled with a mix of seating options, giving the kids a great space to hang out.
This Jackson Hole, Wyoming, home serves as a cabin retreat for the owners and their siblings and extended families. The owners wanted a log cabin with all the modern conveniences, and the design team used a frame construction with log accents and siding. The finished product is an authentic, heritage log cabin with an updated look.
Rustic-Modern Kitchen with Ceiling Beams, Modern Appliances
Soft grays mix with the natural wood tones in this rustic, yet modern cabin retreat. Integrated appliances and a modern island with a sleek waterfall edge bring a streamlined look to the space, while timbered walls and ceiling beams emphasize the home's natural setting and log cabin feel. Windows are strategically placed to allow the chef to enjoy the view while working at the cooking station or sink.
As seen on Rocky Mountain Reno, the couple renovating this log cabin in Minturn, Colorado was interested in bringing both rustic and modern designs together to make the home of their dreams. The clean, white tile, grey stone vanity and grey patterned and mosaic tile, the modern style is greatly represented. To incorporate the rustic design, Trista used natural wood in places like the exposed beams in the ceiling and natural wood baseboards.
Industrial Wood Great Room and Kitchen With Lake View
Designing a home for one family can be a challenge, but designing a home to be shared by two brothers’ families? That’s another proposition altogether — and one architect Matthew Collins of Uptic Studios met with the help of an open layout. “The goal of the project was to create a modern log cabin on Coeur D’Alene Lake in North Idaho,” he explains. “Uptic Studios considered the combined occupancy of two families, providing separate spaces for privacy and common rooms that bring everyone together comfortably under one roof. And we not only had to take into account the space itself, but also all of the people who would be living there. One of the brothers in the family is a chef, so we kept that in mind when designing the open kitchen and living room. We made sure to create a common room just off the kitchen, to bring everyone together. A delicate balance of natural materials and custom amenities fill the interior spaces with stunning views of the lake from almost every angle.”
The rustic living room of this Wyoming family retreat is oriented to take maximum advantage of the stunning, sweeping view. A raw-edge coffee table mixes with clean-lined furnishings to give the home a modern vibe despite its rustic locale. Meanwhile, a tall stone fireplace and beamed ceiling tie in with the log cabin architecture. The house was designed as a cabin retreat for the owners and their siblings and extended families, and it offers both public and private spaces for relaxation. The home is packed with space but has a cozy cabin feel.
