The Cabin

A place in the woods

The Friday Cabin was love at first sight: tucked away in the trees with a small creek running through the yard. The bones were solid but everything was dated…and brown. Giving new life to this cedar-clad gem was a thrill.

Modern 70s Living

RETRO + MODERN

With the 70’s top of mind, simplicity in color and shapes were prioritized: pinks, greens and creams balance the wood clad walls and floors while squares, circles and a touch of scallops and other soft shapes add contrast to the rough natural rock hearth and diagonal indoor siding.

DETAILED UPDATES

Beige carpet was replaced with classic Red Oak solid wood, typical for 1977 when the home was built. Linoleum floors were pulled out of the bathrooms and the entry and replaced with tile from Pratt & Larson and Clé. Light fixtures from Etsy makers and Cedar & Moss helped boost the modern vibe (with 70s flare) and wall sconces were added for ambient lighting.

Kitchen & Dining

GATHER ‘ROUND

Updating both looks and functionality resulted in the perfect cabin kitchen and dining room combo.

An oversized custom table, made locally and stained black to match the kitchen cabinetry, can seat two larger families with 8 Ton chairs. An additional 3 counter stools maximize seating and bridge the dining and kitchen areas. A black buffet stores glasswares and table settings as well as a retro record player.

SWEDISH FIKA VIBES

Refreshed with bespoke cabinetry stained black created a simple profile and offered contrast to the wood interior and white matte marble countertop. Adjusting appliance size and placement allowed for a more functional space (hello narrow but tall Euro fridge).

WOODLAND PANTRY

The adjacent pantry and laundry space got special treatment with Swedish wallpaper from Svenskt Tenn, designed by Josef Frank. Washing towels never felt so relaxing.

100% REFRESHED

The main floor bath features a trio of tiles: beautiful green squares by Clé Tile, creamy fan-shaped tile from Pratt & Larson, and oversized pink penny tile from Bedrosian’s. The open concept shower gives the bath a spacious feel.

Creamy-white marble and unlacquered brass fixtures create continuity from other rooms and a concrete vessel sink in pink adds to the uniqueness of this bathroom (complete with sauna, no big deal).

200% REFRESHED

The upstairs primary bath continues the cabin color scheme of pink and green with deep green hex tiles on the floor and elongated subway tile in blush pink on all four walls. We love consistency. The concrete sink is the perfect shade of green.

SLEEP JENGA

Cabin time is meant to be shared, so space for sleeping many visitors was a priority - make that one dozen. Ski Bowl consists of a queen bed + full size loft bunk with a closet clothed in more wallpaper from Svenskt Tenn designed by Josef Frank.

07b Meadows

The big bunk room, named Meadows, has a tower of sleeping power - a triple bunk with a pullout trundle, as well as a queen bed. And, finally, the primary has a king bed with views of the forest.
