Room Refresh // Summer Lodge Bedroom

Although we’re approaching summer and the idea of a cozy cabin isn’t as strong as it was a month ago, who can resist a bedroom that is one with nature and has comfy fabrics to boot? People should be opening their summer homes and cabins for the season soon, so think more along the lines of linen sheets, vintage wall paper and breezy windows – pretty great huh?

And of course we know that there is a fine line between old & dated, and cool & vintage. It’s about mixing actual vintage with updated vintage looking items, adding the right amount of texture and pattern, and the quality of your pieces. Vintage blankets are nice until the mice got to it and you now have huge holes…toss it, you won’t look more authentic, you’ll look scrubby. So keep up with your cabin look and people will be inviting themselves over summer after summer!

Room Refresh // Masculine Lodge

Hey all! For our final installment of our living room Room Refresh series, we’ve chosen a slightly masculine, earthy cabin style – because at the end of the day, everyone just wants to be all cozied up by the fire in a place that looks straight out of a story book.

To achieve this look, the most important characteristic of all is wood on top of wood, on top of wood. Just deck the place out in the stuff. If it begins to feel a smidge oppressive, feel free to brighten it up with some white paint. Next element? Leather and/or fur (faux, if you please!). The combo of these two textures creates the strong look you’re going for, and establishes the feeling of being a lumberjack. In order to soften it back a bit, add some linen elements and bit of metallic here and there. This will allow the place to feel a little more modern and homey, and less like you attacked a forest in order to decorate your place. See below for some inspiration of this lived-in decor:

Below, we’ve curated some items for you guys to achieve this lodgey look. It’s surprisingly easy to do, since all of these textures are staples in design (wood, linen, brass, etc.). It’s the way they’re combined that really give you that cabin quality. That, plus a few woodland creatures here and there.
