Let’s face it: not all cabin decor is the same. How do you choose your cabin design aesthetic to be cohesive while also showing who YOU are? With that in mind, here is your handy rustic cabin decor guide for when you are doing some light online shopping! While beginning your cabin facelift inspo, I hope to guide you to your bliss. I’ll be breaking these down by where they go in the house.
Another great tip for changing the atmosphere in your space is switching up the lighting! Check out my 6 Top Picks for Cabin Lighting here!
Here are my top recommendations of deals, steals, and ideals for your special hideaway without further ado!
Kicking off with the Living Room…
1. Throw Pillows
Pillows make everything cozier and are one of the most economical ways to highlight your style without breaking the bank. Try mixing these soft fuzzy bear pillows with this charming compass design. Or be bold with these brilliant pops of color and this fun stunner!
You know I love those that cherish their space with fantastic watercolors or paintings they can do themselves. But, for the rest of us that are less gifted unless it is a wine & paint by numbers night, consider these options to brighten up your walls and be proudly displayed next to your trophy mounts!
4. Trophy Trinkets
I’m no Gaston, but I adore using antlers in my decorating! Less is more, but a few pieces here ground your cabin in a beautiful, earthy style without losing out on the pride of your rustic lodge: those showpieces! (Which, I also have to say, less is more when it comes to mounting trophies. A handful of great catches – instead of one from every season since you were seven years old – is the way to go.) Keep that rustic cabin feel with elegance!
5. Other Trinkets!
I can’t resist all of the beautiful details that are eye-popping and mood-setting that you can find online! Like this bear sculpture is perfect for a family feel or
The best feeling is curling up by the fire after a day out exploring the trails, swimming in the lake, having a hearty meal, and toasting marshmallows in the fire pit. I love cranking my fire love up a notch with having candles to put me in the ultimate relaxing mood when I read and unwind in the peaceful evening hours. Candles are one of those wonderful items that combine luxury with function is what I need at my rustic cabin.
Pro Tip: Whether you are led by your nose or committed to a color scheme, do yourself a favor and mix up sizes with your candle setups. It adds whimsy, charm, and extra meditative glowing light.
To paraphrase: a good rug really brings the room together. While this is often more expensive than throw pillows, this adds luxury and comfort.
Pro Tip: If your animals reside inside the cabin with you, double check the reviews to see if the rug is easy to clean before you purchase it.
Simple. Cost effective. Conversation starters. Never underestimate the power of coasters to set the tone of your living room in four delightful circles or squares. I simply can’t resist this coaster set that comes with the most adorable holder I’ve ever seen! We love to see it in our rustic cabin.
Moving to the Kitchen…
9. Pots and Pans Hanger
My kitchen is my heart and soul. When you spend so much time in a place (and it is a primary space in your cabin), you don’t want to overlook the impact it can have in making a space your own and providing warmth. That’s why I adore installing this pots and pans hanger. If you have a kitchen island or an L-shaped or galley setup, you can still use a hanger to display your beautiful pans. Speaking of…
10. Copper pans
I love the look and cleaning up using this simple pots and pans set (or try this 5-piece set option). If you only use your cabin as a getaway space, resist the temptation to only have the bare minimum cookware available and upgrade to keep you feeling fancy on your weekends off. Cookware is the investment you make of it. Which is why I always, always, always keep a stock of…
11. Cast Iron Cookware
The best investment you can make in your kitchen, a cast iron skillet grows with you. When you use your hanger, these continue to be art. I personally am a purist when it comes to cast iron, so I like a lot of the Lodge offerings to love on through the years. However, with all brands, read the fine print to know if they are copying a look or if they are the real deal. Go with the look and quality that is right for you and your budget. Pro Tip: Don’t forget to season (scrape off food with just water and use oil to set in flavors) your cast iron cookware when you are done instead of washing with soap and water.

12. Dining sets
I like getting whimsical with my cabin dining sets. With so many cute options out there, I like having a touch of extra personality, even with something as simple as using color. You may have noticed how much I love the bear trend right now, especially because I have littles who love Goldilocks, but I also am obsessed with this very elegant pine tree motif set.
Coffee. Hot chocolate. Tea. We go through mugs much faster than we go through glasses, so keep your cabin stocked in a simple style or collect whimsical mugs like this one.I love the rustic cabin feel while also having different colors so no one mixes up their hot cocoa.
14. Tea Kettle
Make your life easy by getting this water heater or keep up rustic chic with this charmer. Bonus: this kettle is also perfect for camping and open fires.
15. Dish drying mat
These were such a fun surprise and easy place to add a pop of personality in your kitchen! For a hunting lodge, try this. Or commit to #bearlife with this.
16. Storage Canisters
Spruce up your countertops with a more personal touch! Whether you are following a color scheme or keeping it woodsy, like with these canisters, don’t sleep on the opportunity to personalize! Flour and sugar never looked so good!
17. Soap Dispensers
Whether it’s a spa feel or playful, buy the soap dispenser that matches your rustic cabin’s functionality!
Never miss a chance to find an accent pop! I like matching a deep forest green bath towel with a character-filled hand towel like these.
19. Bath rugs
Don’t forget to pamper your feet with a soft bath rug like this one for when the nights get chilly. I like to keep the bath rugs more simple and soothing with an emphasis on comfort. Here’s to cozy toes!
20. Bathroom light
Add a little glow to the evening with this bathroom nightlight fixture certain to elicit smiles! I love the masculinity and earthiness of using the rock-like facade to complete your rustic cabin bathroom.
21. Bathroom mirror
Overlooking something like the mirror is an easy mistake. Up your rustic elegance with this mirror – I love the metal detail – or try playing with shapes with this wooden round mirror.
22. The Bed Frame
I can’t resist the earthiness of this wooden bed frame. What’s perfect for my retreat is not what I need to bunk a bunch of kiddos, so I prefer to maximize space for my little monkeys with this frame.
23. The Bedspread
Another time when we get down to what tone you are looking for in your rooms. I love this bedspread for your family lodge vibe, but I have to get this solid color vibe for my room in the cabin. Dealer’s choice when it comes to your rustic cabin!
24. Photo Frames
The most important thing about your cabin are the memories you share. I pepper my dresser with photos of our fishing and hiking adventures! Whether we are on the boat or on our feet, these rich wooden frames make me feel like home. Try this economical option if you have as hard of a time choosing which photos to print like I do!
25. Wall Art
There is something so sweet about this doe art for your little ones’ room that will have you smiling while at your heavenly rustic cabin.
