Mountain Cabin Decorating Ideas

For natural beauty and relaxation, it's hard to beat a cabin in the mountains. This can be the perfect getaway spot for a romantic weekend, a family vacation, or just some R & R to recover from the stress of everyday life.

When decorating a mountain cabin, one of the challenges is striking a balance between the simple, rustic look appropriate to the setting and creating a space nice enough to make the indoor experience as pleasant as the outdoor scenery. A recent Southern Living article entitled Dreamy Mountain Retreat featured a couple who decorated their house in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. The thoroughly modern living space featured many indigenous touches, especially around the fireplace. The rough hewn hardwood mantel and designer fireplace screen fit well with the contemporary amenities of the house while providing the rustic feel of a mountain cabin.

Just as the fireplace should be the centerpiece of your living space, the fireplace is an absolutely essential element for a mountain cabin--the focal point and gathering place after a day of hiking, exploration, or relaxation. Be sure to spend the time and energy to decorate it accordingly.
