It’s winter time and we know what that means! It means playing in the snow, gathering around the fireplace, and getting cozy in the cabin! At least that’s what we like to dream of because we really don’t have winter here in Southern California. Maybe some rain, but that’s about as winter as it gets for us. Since there isn’t much snow and winter is rather tame here, all we can do is dream of it! It does get cold for us Californians and that brings up one design tip that is directly inspired by cabins. Decorate and prepare for the cold!
That means extra blankets, cozy pillows and all the cottage feels you find in a cabin! Cabins always have extra ways to keep you warm. Whether it be a cute nook that gets direct sunlight or a sofa with blankets ready to battle the cold, you’re always prepared. Take this idea and use it in your home this winter! It doesn’t have to snow where you are to be influenced by the cabin life, but if it does than that’s one more reason to be prepared!
Take a look at beautiful cabin spaces! Do you have any pictures you’d like to share with us? Post a comment with a link, post it on our facebook page or just email us! We’d love to see some cabins you really adore!

A wooden ladder is a great design piece and an easy way to add rustic decor to your home. They’re extremely versatile and bring a great deal of eye pleasing interest to any space. How does a wooden ladder do this? By taking advantage of the vertical space.
They fill the room and give your eye something to follow through the space. This is as easy as leaning the wooden ladder up against the wall. Now if you want to take it a step further, you can add another layer of decor to continue building dynamic design. Decorate the ladder with throws or even hang art from them, the options can be as creative as you are (or, realistically, what you find on Pinterest). If you’re handy enough you can even convert a wooden ladder into a makeshift shelf. Just be careful what you choose to display, we can’t imagine those will be the sturdiest of shelves!
Take a look at what these designers have done and how they have decorated these spaces with wooden ladders. Plus let’s not forget, they’re a great excuse to go antique hunting. Oops, did we just plant that seed into your mind? Happy hunting!
