When it comes to decorating a cabin, most people prefer conservative styles. This makes sense, especially if we think that we are raised to think in cliches, so our ideal image about cabins is pretty much the same as our parents’ and grandparents’ ones. Anyway, here are a few cabin decor ideas that are classic, yet cool. Take your inspiration from them, then go out there are create your own style and enjoy that cabin together with your friends and family.
The Cool Hunter Style
Fur is the main keyword in this cabin decor idea. You need to have the floors covered with furs instead of carpets and perhaps you should have a few deer heads or antlers hanging on your walls.
The fireplace is a must have. The coffee table and chairs could be made from unpolished logs. If you have firearms, you could display them in a nice showcase on a wall. Get massive wood furniture, preferably in a dark color and showing some wear signs.
The Evergreen Forest Style
This style works best for log cabins. Choose old furniture, made from wood. Find a rug that matches it, but doesn’t look too fancy. Ideally, it should have only three four colors in it, only one or two of them being more striking. The charm of this style lays in the accessories. You need pine cones and evergreen branches placed everywhere. If you wish, you can replace the floral centerpiece on the main table with a mixture of such branches and cones. It will look very good and it will bring the fresh smell of the forest inside your cabin.
The Relaxed, Yet Refreshing Style
A good way to give a bit more life to a dull log cabin is to choose a contrasting decor. Pick some comfortable armchairs and ottomans, get some fancy antique stools and a few wooden cupboards and the decor is set. The fireplace wall could be covered in stone, for a more dynamic effect. You can choose a merry rug, with vivid colors and cool patterns.
Folk Art Is Always Modern
If you fancy folk art, it’s a great idea to choose your cabin decor to match this style. It shouldn’t be too complicated. All you need is to make use of the power of ornaments and paint the walls in stripes of pink and beige. If you wish, you can choose a cool wallpaper and stick it on the walls instead of painting them. This setting could be ideal for Christmas, so if you intend to spend your winter holidays at your cabin, give it a serious thought.
The Playful Style
If you have children, it could be a good idea to choose a playful decor with plastic reindeer figures, oversize gardening tools and cute little dolls. You could even bring in a toy log cabin, so your little ones can have fun while you put another log on that fire and prepare them a nice and tasty dinner.
