Has it happened yet? You know that sense that winter has been here forever and spring, even though around the corner, seems so far away? Do you have cabin fever? Instead of fighting this winter phenomenon, we want to suggest you embrace it! After-all there is much still to appreciate about the colder months. Especially if you make your home a comfy, inviting sanctuary.
Consider adding rustic or even cabin-themed furniture and accents to preserve the warm glows of winter, and a few well-selected pieces can have you enjoying the colder months indoors again.
A More Rustic Look― The Options are Endless
Traditionally, “cabin” furniture has been considered more masculine, rustic, and woodsy. Despite this, a variety of wood styles and colors can be incorporated into your room to catch anyone’s eye without going all out with actual log-hewn furniture. While log-hewn furniture is wonderful, it is also true, this type of furniture is not for everyone … or for every home. If actual log hewn furniture does not match your personal taste, solid wood furniture, such as those created by the artisans at Stickley, is sure to appeal to you and your family.
Speaking of Stickley. What could represent a more versatile design that dresses up your home with understated elegance like their Grand Lodge Collection? The beauty of the Grand Lodge Collection is its ability to fit comfortably into your winter cabin, urban loft, or suburban home. And, as with all Stickley furniture, the Grand Lodge Collection has that Stickley quality that never goes out of style.
Another Stickley piece that adds rustic charm to your kitchen or dining area is the Harvey Ellis China Top or a similarly styled rustic curio cabinet to your home. This Stickley design is rustic but is also oh-so classic and beautiful!
Stickley has been making quality American furniture since 1905 and both Stickley collections, the Grand Lodge and Harvey Ellis, are handmade right here in America.
Mix & Match Your Way
Other “cozy” materials such as leather do not just fit but add perfectly to a more rustic, warm look. Pick dark brown leathers, like those incorporated into this Hancock & Moor ottoman that will lend itself very well to a more rustic theme in your living room or family room area. Other design elements, such as wood accented wall art, lamps, area rugs, & warm bedding all should be used to round out your cozy home look & feel. As with all great home design, some anchor pieces, along with additional accent décor, can create a total environment.
While some might want to go all out and decorate an entire home with rustic or cabin-themed furniture and decor, focusing on one room is also a great way to create that rustic retreat you have in mind. Remember that the simplest elements such as warm, simple lighting are a sure way to set the desired ambience in your living space that leave both guests and family feeling like they are at a warm, winter retreat.
