With a stunning backdrop of vivid green, crystal blue, and warm, earthy brown, homes in the North Carolina mountains have a classic Southern vitality. Cabins and lake houses on Lake Nantahala infuse the natural beauty of mountain living with personal style to create elegant, rustic aesthetics. But with so many styles to choose from, customizing your cabin can be harder than hiking the Smokey Mountains. Here are 3 classic cabin decorating aesthetics we can’t help but love.
Country Style Cabins
From Farmstead décor to the classic touches of French Countryside, country inspired cabins capture the natural charm of the forest and fields. Handmade rocking chairs, floral prints, and family heirlooms all add to the timeless elegance of this lakeside cabin style.
If you’d rather relax on the dock than explore nature trails, make your mountain life warm and breezy with fresh blues, deep greens, and crisp white tones. Accent your kitchen with carved driftwood furniture and add an aquatic flare to your porch by incorporating sails and anchors into your décor.
Fresh and Modern
Marry the warm hues of the Nantahala National Forest with the crisp, clean aesthetic of modern decorating. Decorate with soft, neutral hues like cream, beige, and gray. Choose simple, smooth furniture in natural woods and brushed metals. Offset eye-catching geometric patterns with smooth wooden frames for a pop of visual interest.
Whether your Lake Nantahala cabin is home or a home-away-from-home, make it your own by mixing and matching your favorite decorating trends from each classic look. Add the final touch to any cabin style with early blooming flowers for the kitchen table and a warm fire in the hearth.
