SHOP THE CABIN


LIVING ROOM

 

At the cabin we wanted unfussy finishes, comfortable fabrics  and plenty of seating for our family and friends to stretch out even with the smaller footprint of a cottage. I chose fabrics with neutral tones (as usual) that would wash well even with sandy, dirty kiddos coming in from our little beach and playing in the yard. The styling is complete with white pottery, natural fiber baskets, special walnut wood tones and touches of black to ground the room. 

If you’re like me you love a good before and after. Check this out for what the cabin looked like before it met me and the paintbrush.

KITCHEN

 

This hardworking kitchen was carved out where there once was a bedroom and completed for $1,600. That is a challenging budget for the hub of any home, but we chose simple finishes that were very functional, kept the space feeling open (like the open shelves). The countertops are a less expensive option and add warmth to the space with the wood tone surrounded by all the white. Little pops of black with the plate ware, decor and cabinet hardware add another layer of visual interest to the space. The result of this mix is a functional room that’s not short on character.

Our Cabin Story

This little cabin is not far from home, but was a dream to be able to purchase for our family. The cabin is a place where we can slow down and live simply. Focus on family and relaxing. I’m convinced you can carve out little areas in your own home that will encourage you to do the same. 

I share some favorites here, but it’s focusing on quality time with family that truly makes your place a retreat. 

 

BUNK ROOM

 

PAINT: Color-matched to BM Simply White

BEDDING: Swapped for Beddy’s. I love these for the bunks. Beddy’s make the bunk beds look great at all times without the workout of making their beds!

Every kid loves a bunk room, right?! This is such a great way to make a private bedroom even in the smallest of areas. This space actually used to be the kitchen area before we built the new kitchen. This space even has storage – proving no matter how small your place is it can be functional and good-looking. 

I added a sconce over each bed with the (magic light trick!) and paired that with the pipe guardrails we built. The rails are spray painted flat black. Ryan did a great job building this bunk out and I had fun painting and decking it out so the kids could crash after a day of play at the cabin.

The bunk room is another great before and after to check out. We redefined the space – as in, ripped everything out that was here!
