Raw Materials

Let natural materials take center stage by limiting finishes and keeping the paint palette neutral. Here, wooden shelves (with hidden supports) sit above concrete countertops and wood cabinets. Go further by letting your dry goods sit pretty on shelving (rather than hidden in the pantry).

Reclaimed Furniture

Choose furnishings and accessories that are reminiscent of their past life. These tables are made from naturally fallen Cypress trees, each solid wood and one-of-a-kind.

Outside In

Whenever possible, make use of weathered materials inside. Here, upcycled oars become handrails for a cabin's stairway.

Denim Accents

Nothing says cozy comfort with a hint of nostalgia like denim fabric. These beauties are fashioned from distressed premium denim that's hand-finished in Los Angeles.

Cabins call for layers with a handmade vibe. Whether made by grandma decades ago or purchased new, quilts should always be at hand.

Rustic Look

You can't overdo it with rustic materials. Here, whitewashed reclaimed wood and corrugated metal wainscoting line the walls while rough wood frames the mirror and serves as backsplash.
