How to decorate winter cabin - achieve the ultimate coziness

The cozy mountain cabin is a definition of all winter joys and part of everyone’s wish list. Whether you have your own winter cabin or you rent one, you’ll need to bring that feel of cosiness and warmth by decorating and preparing interior design.

In order to create this carefree feeling that we all love when it comes to winter cabins, it is important to be creative, sustainable, to follow good advice, but most important - to follow your idea of an ideal winter fairytale in the mountain cabin.

So, let’s take a look at these helpful tips to bring the cozy ambiance to your abode.

Bring in natural materials - keep the touch of nature

Whether you prefer the appeal of large timber log cabins or you lean more toward modern detailed mountainous homes, natural materials are always at the forefront of the interior design. When it comes to walls you can choose the wood ones, or try something new with decorative concrete wall panels, and create a contrast from all the wooden details you will put inside.

Floors and artisan furniture can be brought into the cabin to recreate the look of a ski-lodge or rustic cabin. Large boulders or stones are popular for fireplaces, walls, and accent areas that demand a commanding presence. Don’t forget the windows, they should be big enough to show your beautiful natural surroundings. Natural material will merge with the great view of the mountains creating a unique feeling of coziness.

Add a fireplace - synonym for winter happiness

Can you even imagine a beautiful winter day in the mountains without drinking tea, coffee or hot chocolate next to the fireplace in your perfect accommodation? One winter cabin needs to have a rustic fireplace, or the modern one if you prefer so.

Whether you prefer a traditional brick, rustic boulder, or even a modern flagstone fireplace, all of them are ideal to bring in the cozy nature of a mountain cabin. Choose wisely where are you going to put the fireplace, because it needs to be approachable and in the center of the room. Also, a good idea is to arrange all the furniture around it.

If you want to be even more creative you can use colorful pillows, textiles and comfy rugs, and put them on the floor near to the fireplace. You will make a wonderful place to hangout, that will be tempting for all ages.

Add a convenient reading nook

Winter cabins are all about delightful moments of enjoyment and time with family, or time just for yourself. So, there is another thing you can add alongside a hangout place next to the fireplace. It is a reading nook.

Choose a window with a great view and design a small but inviting space where you can relax with a good book. A classic window bench piled with plush throw pillows is an easy task that really can bring a difference. If you don’t have a proper window in the cabin, you can replace it with a hanging egg chair or a comfy loveseat near to the window.

Use warm light colors - create a safe place to relax and enjoy

If your cabin feels a bit cramped, you’ll definitely want to decorate with lighter colors. These shades help to reflect light, which creates the illusion of more space. In case your cabin is in the forest you will have a lack of natural light, so you should compensate it with furniture and design in light colors, without stepping too much out of the natural and rustic vibe.

If your cabin has an abundance of wood everywhere you turn, you can consider whitewashing walls or ceilings to brighten up the room. To retain the traditional mountain cabin vibe, leave the beams untouched so you still see wooden elements among the white surfaces.

What a joyful image is a comfortable winter cabin in the mountains and you with your family or friends having the most relaxing weekend, bonding, talking, reading, or playing board games next to the fireplace. Either you can arrange it for yourself, or you can prepare this kind of accommodation for your guests - do it. And spread the winter magic.
