It doesn’t matter whether you live in balmy Cali or icy Michigan: When January rolls around, it’s cabin fever time. Often cabins and country houses are more rustic than chic, but there are a few exceptions. Cabin classics like textured wood and natural hues get an updated spin with Scandinavian decor and hints of luxury (hello, velvet). The resulting vibe makes you want to light a fire, brew some coffee and try one of those outdoorsy dates. If you’re looking for ways to get the rustic-chic look in your home or you just want to take a visual vacation, here are 15 gorgeous spaces to satisfy all your mountain-loving cravings.
1. White Washed Wood: Texture, texture, texture! This room has it going on. From the white-washed plank walls to the woven chairs and cowhide rug, the dining room in this cabin is too chic to quit. (via My Domaine)
2. Rustic Spa Space: Trade the traditional cabin kitsch aesthetic for a more modern look with a sleek freestanding tub. Even though the rough wood planks are more on the traditional side with a warm pink rug, the white towels and porcelain fixtures keep the space bright and fresh. (via Lakber Magazin)
3. Planking Headboard: If salvaged materials make you giddy, then you just may be a fan of the modern rustic style. Pair a wood plank headboard with bold patterns and minimalist furniture. (via My Domaine)
5. Faux Fur Everywhere: For instant cozification, just add fur. Fur throws or small rugs can soften up more modern furniture and add inviting warmth to the room for when the temps get chilly. (via Hunted Interiors)
6. Layered Rugs: This colorful cabin has so much personality with a warm color scheme (hello shades of pink) and mix of textures. Sheer curtains and woven chairs give the room a contemporary, open feel to balance out the heavy wood ceiling. (via Domino)
7. Shades of Gray: Yes, that is cinderblock and yes, it looks incredibly stylish. Contemporary furniture and bright green seating offer an unexpected but welcome change from the traditional plaids and antlers. (via My Domaine)
8. Neutral Tribal: With a neutral color palette, you can trickle in bits of color with smaller accessories like throw pillows and light fixtures. Smaller accessories allow you to change the way your room feels from season to season. (via Ward Young)
9. Blue Velvet: The unusual furniture color here has just the right amount of glam. Since the wood beams and stone fireplace bring in a lot of texture, minimize your use of patterns in the decor for a more natural, back-to-basics look. (via Elle Decor)
10. Bold and Dark: Dark leather keeps a wood-paneled room from looking too stiff. If you don’t want to splurge on a leather arm chair, bring the same luxe look into your room with leather accents like a lampshade or even a throw pillow. If you’re going with a dark accent wall, make sure to bring in plenty of lighting with bedside lamps and white bedding for contrast. (via One Kings Lane)
11. Stacked Firewood: How about that “Oh” factor? For those of us who prefer not to hunt, a gallery of twig antlers totally nails those wild vibes. A low wall of stacked wood to back a fuzzy come-hither couch adds a chic texture to the room. (via Tuvalu)
12. Moody Farmhouse: The use of dark walls and vintage finds turn this cabin bedroom into a woodsy, but classic space. If you’re bold enough to go dark, add some big metallic pieces to keep the room from feeling to cave-like. (via Farrow and Ball)
13. Pastel Palette: We wouldn’t mind going Dutch on this lovely, pastel-colored cabin. In keeping with traditional Scandinavian decor, this minimal dining room has very few color accents, resulting in an open and airy feeling. (via My Scandinavian Home)
14. Norwegian Chic: Deck out your space with chunky wood furniture, like this solid slab dining table. No space for big pieces? Capture that rustic feel with reclaimed, unfinished wood accents: A wall of salvaged barn planks is a wonderful way to get a rustic, warm look in the room. (via Popsugar)
15. Cozy Dining: Modern dining chairs get a plush treatment with faux fur throws. A colorfully patterned area rug brings the room together. If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace, keep a stack of wood in a log holder at all times — even if you never use it. You can also get a similar look by just stacking wood against the wall.
