How to Transform your Home into a Rustic Cabin

December 14, 2014 by | David | There have been 0 comments

There’s something magnetic about rustic cabin design. Perhaps it’s the connection to a bygone era, or maybe it’s because of the irresistibly cozy appeal. Whether you live in the heart of a forest or on a bustling city street, you can bring the feel of a country cabin to your space. Tap into these decorating ideas from Altrufir to get started!

Incorporate Natural Elements
Rustic cabin décor is all about creating a vibe that’s reminiscent of the countryside. The most powerful way to achieve the coveted cabin feel is by tapping into natural and reclaimed wood. Recycled flooring, wood paneling, and exposed beams go a long way to create this affect.

Mix Patterns and Textures
Whereas modern design is all about clean lines and uniform style, rustic décor should feel more like a labor of love. Mix and match pillows and blankets with different patterns and textures to create a lived-in mishmash. Consider mixing a soft beige and white chevron patterned couch pillow with a muslin ranch style blanket. You can also blend photography, local paintings, and sculptural elements to further your unified-through-disorder design.

Incorporate Soft Lighting and Warm Colors
Lighting has the power to make or break the mood. Choose lamps instead of overhead lighting. Purchase candles in varying sizes to accentuate the cozy appeal in the evening.

Natural lighting will complement your rustic design during the day. Warm colors, or colors with a red base rather than a blue base like red-brown, auburn browns, and deep orange, will bring your cabin to life.

Think Cozy Elements
When you’re cultivating a rustic cabin atmosphere, you are creating your own oasis. As such, comfort counts! Invest in a sumptuous leather couch that you can sink into, or add plaid woolen blankets to keep you warm.

If you’re ready to fire into your rustic cabin renovation, the team at Altrufir can help you get your project off the ground. Get in touch today and bring your dream to life!
