Cozying Up Your Cabin in the Woods

Getting ready to experience your own version of Walden can be something you look forward to as a part of your annual get-away, or something you do as a treat every once in a while with your loved ones. The one thing you need when taking time off in your vacation cabin is a home away from home, and nothing makes a place a cozy place to be more than the right interior decoration. If you’re a mountain man with a love for the North American wild then you may look into black bear décor, and if you’re just there for the trees and the quiet then you can open all your curtains and let the inside in. The options are endless.

One of the best ways to make a space feel cozy and warm is to play with lighting. String or fairy lights are a perfect way to light up a room just enough that you can see clearly but dim enough to mimic the warmth of a fire crackling in a hearth or candles set around the room. They also work well as night lights, bright enough to illuminate the way to the restroom but dim enough to allow for a restful night’s sleep.

If you truly want your cabin to be a home away from home, hang photos on the walls. Your family is making memories here, so display all the fun you’ve had for everyone to see and reminisce over. A cabin is meant to be a warm and welcoming place, and nothing is as warm and welcoming as the happy memories you’ve made in such an intimate and cozy space with the ones you love.

Also consider themed decorations. If you enjoy outdoor activities, bring those themes to your cabin. Hang up kayaking oars or paintings of landscapes. Remember to make the space your own, something you’ll want to come back to over and over.
