Mountain Living

What is it about rustic cabin lodge bedding that people find so attractive?

This bedroom look isn't fussy, it works for men, women and children, and it offers a cozy retreat feel. It reflects being in the mountains where people experience a feeling of seclusion along with the beauty of nature.

What is cabin decor?

Imagine a vacation house or second home in the Rocky Mountains, the Northwoods, the Great Smoky Mountains or on your favorite lake. If you're lucky the home features large windows and extended decks which offer a breathtaking view of the sparkling water or the spectacular mountain peaks and ranges.

Inside there are exposed wood beams and comfortable rooms with vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and stone fireplaces. The decor is simple. These are spaces that celebrate nature, mountain and/or lake living and traditional furnishings.

Updated mountain living features cozy expanses where relaxing is encouraged and comfort is appreciated. Most rustic cabins detail traditional quality and may include some or all of these components:

  • Natural color palette accentuated with spots of accent colors
  • Folk Art or vintage inspired accessories
  • Quilts, pillows, knits and woolens
  • Hardwood floors, wool and patterned rugs
  • Leather and wood furniture
  • Metal art sculptures and metal accent lamps
  • Arts and Crafts furniture
  • Snug spaces with window nooks
  • Simple patterns that celebrate nature
  • Soaring river rock fireplaces or enclosed wood stoves

The sets create a warm cabin feeling for any bedroom in the house even if you don't live in a mountain house. If you or a family member loves the outdoors, nature, the mountains consider these comforters for a change!

How to inexpensively create the look of rustic cabin

  • Wood floors
  • Display your vintage pieces and collections-even something as simple as a stack of wool Pendleton blankets
  • Vintage books in wood bookcases
  • Soft colors that complement the wood
  • Cozy nooks
  • Period appliances
  • Nature themed artwork
  • Gently used vintage furniture
  • Focus on the fireplace, wood stove or gas insert


Lodge Cabin Bedding for your rustic mountain home, dorm room or cabin

I moved to Colorado 15 years ago and before that I'm not sure if I even considered this look for my bedroom. A visit to Aspen, Colorado and a rental of an amazing mountain condominium changed my mind. The large space with vaulted pine ceilings was decorated with upscale log furniture, antler chandeliers, river rock fireplaces in the bedroom and Great Room and high end coordinated bedding accented with Pendleton Woolen Mills plaids and quilted nature scenes. It was charming, comfortable and cozy.

While the look isn't for everyone and every decor, it works really well for a mountain cabin, log house, ski house or summer cottage by the lake.

While not as expensive as my Aspen retreat rental, one of my favorite bedding sets are these rustic cabin or lodge sets.

Lodge bedding sets generally consist of sheets, pillow cases, shams and comforters, there are even lodge bedding sets in a bag for your college student who is looking to coordinate a dorm room with these comforter sets.

Think high country bedding: mountain cabin, ski lodge or outdoor theme. The sets might feature pine trees, bear, moose, geese, deer, elk, sport fishing or the traditional vintage plaids of a mountain cabin. Cabin lodge bedding sets offer cozy, comfortable choices for your bedroom.

Colorado Mountain Bedding

Carstens Hinterland 5 Piece Bedding Set, Queen

I purchased this set for our Woodland Park, Colorado cabin guest room. Mixed with our Arts & Crafts style vintage wood pieces it creates a beautiful atmosphere for out-of-state guests who are new to our Colorado lifestyle. I like the stripe design with the natural pine cone accents and wildlife of the mountains. Although I didn't use the bed-skirt all other pieces are well-made and will last for years. Perfect for any season.

 

A Mountain Retreat

The idea behind the lodge look is a place to renew, relax and rewind. The goal of this decor is comfort and simplicity so that you and your guests feel welcome and serene. Creating a quiet retreat is the goal of many people who love mountain living or dream about a second vacation home in the shadow of mountainous peaks.

If you're looking to create a mountain or lodge style bedroom theme, you should start with lodge cabin bedding. Accessorize your bedroom with natural wood or log bedroom furniture and hand crafted lamps. Choose paint in earth tones and keep the window treatments simple.

      No but they are gorgeous. It's amazing what a change of scenery does for one's perception of life.
