We’ve rounded up 15 of our favorite rooms that absolutely nail cabin decor to a T.
No cabin-like space is complete without a cozy quilt or two! Why not get creative when it comes to incorporating such textiles in a space? Designer Lisa Queen chose to revive a set of chairs with beloved Kantha quilts for a custom, comforting look.
It’s All in the Details
When decorating a cabin-like bedroom, don’t forget to think beyond bedding and pay special attention to features such as lighting. In this space by Leanne Baud, a vintage looking lightbulb attached to the wall adds charm and makes reading in bed extra pleasant.
Make it a starry night! Hanging string lights and star cutouts above the bed will make any sleep space feel like a cabin retreat. Claire Knight kept her comforter simple and opted to focus on the area above her bed instead, where she hung these fun fixtures and also displayed art.
Think outside the box when it comes to wall art. Keara Sexton chose to hang up outdoorsy pieces such as a paddle, hat, and nature-themed scene. Bonus: Your walls can double as storage when you make your everyday essentials part of the decor.
Tons of Texture
Mixing different types of fabrics creates that welcoming, lived-in look that makes cabins feel so special. Angela Horwath mastered this setup by mixing a kilim-inspred pillow cover with a rustic-looking plaid piece that pop on her sofa.
Using a trunk as a coffee table, as Marta Dowling did, is an excellent way to create camp-like vibes in your very own living room. Better yet, large trunks like this one can make for extremely valuable storage. Stuff blankets, board games, and other night-in essentials inside, then sit back and enjoy a laid back evening at home. A sparkly chandelier will make you feel like you’re actually outdoors under the star.
Don’t be afraid to mix wood tones in a space, as Laura Coles did in this texture-filled bedroom. If you have exposed beams as Coles does, opt for furniture in a lighter hue to let this dramatic architectural feature really pop. Then soften up the look with knit throw blankets in soothing colors.
Feeling minimalistic? Incorporating a couple of sweet accent pieces will give your space personality without making it look too busy. Sophie Thurlow hung a beautiful butterfly print above her bed to bring the outdoors into this soothing sleep space. Smaller antlers on either side of the art piece complement the room’s natural beams.
