Decorating with a Lakeside Cabin Feel

Whether you’re looking to decorate your summer camp, family cabin or just want to evoke a lakeside feel in your home for the coming months, for summer or any season, you’ve come to the right place. At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, we offer many ways to achieve this decorating theme. Cabin decor features dark colors, as usually accomplished by stained wood paneling, high wooden ceiling beams, and a combination of hardwood flooring and braided area rugs. Natural elements such as birch bark accents, pinewood cabinets, and stone fireplaces go a long way too. The more distressed, worn or handmade items appear within the camp inspired home, will only add to a feeling of true natural beauty. Let’s take a look below.

Set the Scene

Bringing a sense of the outdoors into the indoor environment should be the goal alongside an overall sense of “cozy comfort” throughout your entire home. Our Heritage Plaid Star Quilt collection offers warm colors and a classic country pattern for a lakeside guest or master bedroom in your rustic cabin. Classic Country Check Curtains and coordinating Chair Pads work well in a rustic kitchen or dining area, and never go out of style.

Sit Back & Relax

Remember relaxed, comfy living is key within this decor theme and that means putting your feet up, perhaps on our Bear Foot Rest, shown here to the right. Spoil tired, aching feet with a place to “hibernate” after a long day of work, fishing or hiking. Handcrafted of plush 100% polyester “fur,” this bear is proudly made in the USA.

We also recommend cuddling up to a hooked wool pillow, or kicking back in rocking chair to be comforted by a stylish and plush Rocker Pad Set.
