There are telltale signs in every home that hint at its owner’s secret dream home. Sometimes dark wood finishes and leather furniture hide a desire for a rustic, lodge retreat. Other times, a hint of sand and starfish reminds an owner of their favorite beach cottage. Whether if you love coastal decor, or you long to have a lodge home draped in cabin decor, then look no further! We have the decor you need for any home.
If you dream of warming up by a wood-burning fireplace and spending your days looking at spectacular mountain views, then you probably appreciate cabin decor. Cabin decor is about embracing your love of the great outdoors and bringing nature inside. In fact, it’s probably the closest you can get to camping without sleeping outside! Our cabin decor collection gives you the opportunity to embrace your love of lodges with natural wood tones and rich finishes. Whether your dream mountains are Smoky or Rocky, there is a cabin style to fit your space.
Don’t be afraid to choose deeper, richer colors to start your cabin and lodge makeover. Try combining shades of berry red and pine green which look great next to deep shades of blue and brown. Antlers and animal decor look natural as a part of any rustic cabin decor. From lodge lamps to cabin furniture, there are plenty of accents to choose from to personalize your dream cabin experience.
Embracing a coastal theme can mean different things for different people. Sandy beach lovers in the south may want to show off their love of the ocean with seashells and starfish. You’ll find plenty of neutral colors and pops of blue or teal that mimic their surroundings. Living along the east coast might mean embracing the bay feel. You might find nautical pieces that highlight a sailing hobby and the various boats that you see gliding past on the water. And don’t forget the west coast where the surf is high, the colors are bright, and the sun seems never to set.
All of these coastal locations are ripe with coastal decor traditions that can be applied to land-locked homes in any city or state. You simply need to pick the lifestyle that speaks to you. No matter which style you pick, it is good to start with a neutral color pallet for your walls and furniture and build from there. Add pops of color with coastal art and statues, or with brightly colored pillows. Coral and red look great with sand tones, and you can never go wrong adding sea-tone shades of green and turquoise. Your home will look relaxed and beach-ready in no time!
The Best of Both Worlds: Decorating Your Lake Home
If you love the water, but you prefer it fresh, not salty, and you like your view with a bit more green than blue, you might want to try the lake house look. This look takes the oars from the coastal collection and puts them on a canoe while it takes the dark cabin colors and turns them into accents against softer coastal shades. Pop the sandy tones of the coastal collection against the dark wood tones of your cabin decor for a rustic touch. Spend your days out in the sun on the water, and your nights curled up by the fire. The lake house look is the best of both worlds for decorators that just can’t choose which style they love more!
So, which look is your favorite? Would you rather cuddle up in a cabin, or cruise down the coast? Spend your days surfing the waves, or hiking the trails? With the endless possibilities across the country, you don’t have to choose, and neither does your decor. Check out all of the styles here at Kirkland’s for plenty of inspiration for your next dream home.
