Cabin Chic

Thinking about the weekend, a long weeked, I thought how nice to do a take of design from the perspective of cabin living. Why not add a modern twist or add charm to a space that is typically left with a mismash of furniture.

Eclectic display:

Different take on uses for furniture:

Light flows:

Go with the flow:

Pretty prints with unexpected colors, large beefy trim, panelling in a unconventional scale:



A few things to add into the mix:

Find of the day: A little of this a little of that (designer Michael Penney)

A great link I would love to share with you along with some of my favorites from his site! Check it out (thanks Jenna :)):


Kitchen | Sarah Richardson Design

Pretty! : Kitchen | Sarah Richardson Design.

Here is a great idea for a small space that doesn’t allow an island. Stll feels roomy and the open shelves and clear glass fronts allows you to show off display items.

The two tones adds to the look but doesn’t take over the overall effect.

If you have a little nook of space…why not use it! Great little toast making station

In a small space its a good idea to incorporate as much storage as possible. Here the built-in cupboards are great for the items you use less frequently.

Overall this look is fresh, clean and not fussy. Notice there are little accessories as well as statement lighting. This adds to a seemless look that is both functional and nice to look at

In the Event that something catches your eye here is a source list (Note: I didn’t put the list together, just borrowed it from the site :)):


The inspired room: Bathrooms

What do you need in a bathroom. First you need to figure out the purpose of the room and what its main uses are going to be: is it a place to wash up, a busy family bathroom, mainly a guest space, a space for one or a space for 2.

Powder Room:

The first bathroom to focus on would be the powder room. You need to keep in mind that the powder room is mainly used for company or daily, meaning you don’t have¬†any need¬†for storage or large¬†cabinetry. Just a¬†small¬†functional space. The powder room is also a great¬†opportunity¬†to use more expensive¬†finishing’s, bold patterns and little¬†luxuries¬†that can add that little touch of glamour. Just remember to keep the room light, durable and relates to the decor in the rest of the house.

This small space feels cozy and roomy with use of a small pedestal sink and paneling on the walls.

Pretty half bath; A Sarah Richardson design

A functional sink with storage and pretty details such as the tiled inlay that creates a built in mat. A welcoming space that feels large and glamorous.

Family bathrooms/Ensuite:

The family bathroom needs storage! Use your imagination to create functional storage and ensure that you have a plan for all the things you want to display as well as the things that need to be under wraps. By making a plan your bathroom will stay organized, clean and show-home ready!

This vanity is a perfect example of having display storage underneath the vanity as well as covered storage on each side that flank the sinks perfectly as well as serve as plenty of storage within reach
