So what the heck exactly is cabin chic anyway? Requiring a little more attention to detail than just throwing some antlers on the wall, I would say cabin chic is defined by the juxtaposition of vintage or modern pieces with natural elements in a way that tells a story of escape. Pops of accent colors and bold textiles amidst rustic structural elements like wooden floors and walls help steer this look away from kitschy-cabin and give it a contemporary feel. Collections are also key. Vignettes like flea market treasures, small stones or shells in the window sills can assist in creating a dialogue about adventures had while fleeing the hectic, day-to-day life. Oh, and a cast iron stove in the corner couldn’t hurt either.
