Tennessee Charmer

In the spirit of the holiday I wanted to share a fabulous house tour that I found in Country Living, it combines the warmth of Christmas with good old fashioned Tennessee charm. The couple planned to build a single room hunting cabin and through the process of collecting materials to build with they decided to create a cabin they could share and grow with as a family. The result is pure lodge love. This fabulous re-purposed bench that sits on the front porch was found at a local liquidation auction and was once part of a Whole Foods display.

The kitchen boasts rustic charm with industrial and vintage details. A salvaged industrial worktable serves as an island, the stools were from an old factory, a vintage icebox acts as cabinetry and Douglas-fir shelves hold dishes. This combination of industrial and vintage creates an eclectic hip feel in this cozy cabin.

The holiday decor is perfectly suited for this cozy family lodge. The owners used poplar logs that had once been part of another cabin and pine boards from an abandoned grain mill hiring an area craftsmen to bring their dream to life. The fireplace and mantel is made from Tennessee rock and reclaimed poplar.

In the dining area sharing some family time. The wall gallery even has character, it is made up of wooden foundry molds. The fabulous chairs were found on a trip to Montana.

Below, this beautiful ceiling was created using reclaimed logs from a barn and a smokehouse. The overall feel is warm and peaceful combining a vintage settee with one of my favorite iron beds from Pottery Barn and a soothing color palette. This home inspires me to want to build a cozy retreat for my family, how about you?
