Be it a rustic log home, rugged mountainside retreat, or New England camp, there’s something about this natural aesthetic that just feels hygge. Pronounced “hoo-gah,” that’s the Danish term conveying coziness, simplicity and happiness.
In a frenetic, technology-driven world, the humble, often wifi-less cabin becomes a retreat that reconnects us to nature. It’s a symbol of resilience, an opportunity for contemplation.
And it’s no surprise that bright, open timber-frame homes – built with interlocking wooden beams, posts and braces – have enjoyed a renaissance. Look no further than @cabinlove or @beautifulcabins to see how small spaces inspire people around the world.
Today’s cabins are much more than strategically stacked logs. Many are luxurious, meshing high-end accents with easygoing style. Even tree houses, those nostalgic childhood hideaways, are enjoying a comeback, albeit with adult amenities like plumbing and electricity.
Cabin style always embraces wood, whether a chair or rustic railing, a crackling fire in an old woodstove or fireplace, or the natural appeal of a smooth, wooden floor.
A home in the woods isn’t essential to adopting the conscious coziness of cabin style. Here are a few ideas.
A lightweight wool throw adds warmth to any room, regardless of the season. In addition to adding a pop of color, it’s the ideal accompaniment when curling up with a book and cup of tea.

Rustic simplicity is key to cabin style. This serene Danish-style bedroom, with its wooden bench, comfy bedding, and soft color palette, is an idyllic retreat after a day spent exploring the woods.
