How To Decorate Your Home To Look Like a Cozy Cabin | the ReFab Diaries

If you enjoy venturing into the outdoors and being surrounded by nature, then decorating your home to look like a cozy cabin is just what you need. With this aesthetic, simply repurposing items that you find outdoors pulls in the natural cozy cabin feel. Even if you live in the city, bring a little nature indoors can hemp relieve stress and build a homey atmosphere.

How To Decorate Your Home To Look Like a Cozy Cabin

Emphasize natural materials

You cannot achieve a cozy cabin aesthetic until you add wood accents to the room. If your home is already a bit older, there might be some hidden wooden gems within the walls. If you don’t find shiplap or other wood to reuse in the house already, you can scour the woods surrounding you or visit a shop that reclaims wood so you can save money and achieve a more natural space.

Center the room around a fireplace

The staple of any cabin is a hearth that dominates the center of the room, creating the ultimate cozy aesthetic. Any fireplace can work for this, and you may even find an older one that you can repurpose for a more vintage feel.

Fireplace maintenance may be different for each; for example, the maintenance for a gas fireplace is far less than one of a traditional wood-burning fireplace; in the end, the decision is yours, and whatever option you choose will cozy up the space.

Bring in warm lighting

To make your space glow, I suggest using warm lighting. Cool lighting gives a clean and modern feel, something we are not trying to accomplish here. Warm lighting, however, is softer and produces the “glow” you’ll want to recreate in your living room or any other room in the house.

Use vintage furniture

Almost everything in the space should have a vintage feel, including the furniture. I find that upcycling older pieces of furniture not only saves money for your budget but implements the exact aesthetic you want with a cabin feel. Reupholster and alter the furniture you find to create the precise pattern and feel you want for your cozy retreat.

Display woodland treasures

You can find all the decorative bits and pieces you need for this aesthetic right in your backyard (or in a forest preserve nearby). Gather pine cones, feathers, stones, etc., and construct unique displays that reinforce the aesthetic. Foraging for treasures can be a fun, relaxing activity, and bringing these pieces of nature into your home makes the cabin feel more tangible.

What will you find to decorate your home to look like a cozy cabin? Keep in mind your style and personalize the space to accommodate your needs. Recycle elements and watch as your home comes to life with a woodland feel.
