Vintage Cabin Bedroom Inspiration

   Design elements for the perfect vintage cabin bedroom retreat!

What's the first thing you think of when you hear the word, cabin? 

Does dark wood paneling or rustic log walls come to mind?  What about antler furnishings and fixtures?

I combined vintage decor with a modern twist on classic cabin characteristics to create the perfect vintage cabin feel. 

Vintage modern cabin bedroom


1.  WALLS:  Calm sage green board and batten walls add a modern twist to classic rustic log cabin walls. 

2.  WOOD TONES:  A dark-stained antique spindle bed and rich wood floors keep the traditional cabin style.  Repeating the same dark wood accents throughout the room (ceiling fan, mounted antlers, globe) helps tie the room together.  Adding lighter wood tones creates much-needed warmth and contrast.

3.  PATTERN: Mixing plaid and stripe fabrics and textures adds interest and keeps the cabin bedroom fun and interesting. 

4.  VINTAGE:  Replacing traditional cabin furniture with an antique spindle bed and a stacked suitcase nightstand adds uniqueness and unexpected charm.  Vintage wool blankets and vintage home decor accents finish off the space and pull the room together.
