Cabin Decor Ideas: Rustic, Lodge & Mountain Decor
If you’re having trouble figuring out how you want your cabin to look, below are 3 popular styles. You can hone in on one of these styles to create a cohesive look for your cabin.
Some of the most popular examples of rustic decor:
- Antique furniture
- Farmhouse accents
- Whitewashed wood accessories
About Rustic Decor
Earthy-looking rustic cabin décor continues to be extremely popular. Creamy white-toned colors will go with all your furniture and accessories. Distressed, whitewashed, or antiqued furniture adds an air of authenticity.
Furniture that incorporates both wood and metal is also very striking. Natural greenery, such as fragrant evergreen branches, makes an ideal organic accent.
Some of the most popular examples of lodge decor:
- Solid wood furniture
- Rich colors
- Wildlife themed accessories
About Lodge Decor
If you’ve ever spent time in a cozy mountain lodge, it was probably furnished in classic lodge decor. A lodge’s color scheme tends to include dark green, rich burgundy, and cool cream shades. Solid wood furniture is a lodge decor mainstay.
Patterned textiles might include a patchwork quilt and throw pillows on the sofa. Accent pieces such as deer antler lamps, bear motif figurines, and other wildlife-themed pieces are common features of lodge decor.
Some of the most popular examples of mountain decor:
- Neutral tones (like greys, tans, creamy whites)
- Cozy textures
About Mountain Decor
Well-coordinated mountain decor has a cozy appearance and an informal feel. Neutral tones such as grays, tans, and creamy whites work well as background colors.
Velvet or chenille throw pillows, and other textile accents, provide splashes of color. Table lamps feature warm-toned bulbs and natural fabric shades.
Cabin Decor Tips: How to Decorate Your Cabin
Create a Focal Point
In the great room (or living room), create a gathering spot by placing an area rug near the fireplace. Arrange a comfortable seating group around the rug, making the area both functional and welcoming. Add a sturdy wooden coffee table, plus a matching end table or two, to complete the look.
With Cabin Decor, Less is More
It can be tempting when first decorating your cabin to want to decorate every inch and every corner. Instead, it’s also OK to decorate over time, adding things as you find them and simplifying your style.
With less decor, what you DO have is more likely to stand out. You’ll have less clutter, less decor to dust & clean, and the pieces that you add will be more meaningful.
