in my dreams i live here: cabin fever.

like a lot of people, i dream of having a little cabin off in the country to get away to. that’s why i made the teepee! the home away from home in my head though, is perhaps not what typically comes to mind when you think ‘cabin’. i dream of a light and airy space maybe more like a tree fort, with loads of zen-like white, and cozy bedroom with lots of knit blankets and a fireplace to keep me warm at night.

i’ll decorate with lovely old prints, mementos and family photos — like this great gallery by hilary walker. but i’d like to keep clutter to a minimum to help clear my mind, so i’ll leave big empty spaces, too, with nice slouchy sofas, like these via family living.

dining will be keep simple like this pretty dining room with all white dishware (below), and little white dinette, photographed beautifully by bieke claessens, too, with fresh foods and home brewed coffee like this from Benjamin Bergh. i’ll sit quietly and peruse ideas from kinfolk magazine and serve fresh bread on my dip-dyed baguette board from terrain.

  1. All of these images look so peaceful. I want to grab a good book, my cup of tea and move into a cabin too!

    I moved to Portland excited to live in the city. Now I want to live off in the mountains… and this is essentially what I envision.

    The neutral color palette is so soothing….I love that the decor is simple but still so cozy!

    Oh dear. I don’t know which image I like most. I absolutely understand your dream!

  5. Such an elegant take on a cabin in the woods. I dream almost daily of having a cottage by the sea…sigh.

  6. It’s this off white all around that makes my knees weak. And the concrete floor. That too..

  7. Yes! I can’t handle “woodsy” decor. It makes me feel sad…it’s so dark and cumbersome. This is beautiful and very freeing, like a fantasy house/cabin should be!

  8. I’ve stayed in that tree house!

  9. that cabin is completely gorgeous………….what a wonderful retreat

  11. I can’t afford to live in a cabin in the woods currently, but I love to dream about it. For now I’ll have to settle for a tent in the yard…

    You always have such a great aesthetic. Thanks for sharing your beautiful eye for style–

  12. This is one of the most beautiful photo posts I’ve come across in a while. I grew up in a log home in the woods, but I still dream of a tiny little cabin I can call my own. Thanks for brightening my day, Victoria!
