Lake house furniture and lodge furniture combine natural, rustic and primitive design elements – distressed and reclaimed woods, hickory twig furniture, stone and slate. In fact, lodge furniture fits almost any place where you want a ‘get away from it all’ atmosphere in harmony with nature and the great outdoors. A rustic retreat, the mountain lodge may be nestled in the woods or beside a lake. Lake house furniture in a fishing cabin or a ski lodge or a family vacation home is casual and comfortable.
A cabin on a lake may have duck decoys or oars as decorative accents and reflect the surroundings of the cabin.
It’s not uncommon to see exposed beams in cabins or lots of woodwork. A great way to soften up the roughness of the wood is to add cozy accessories like large throws, soft pillows and warm lighting.
A mix of rustic elements, like reclaimed wood tables, matched with a brightly upholstered chair or a few colorful pillows creates a feeling of a home away from home. Driftwood and stone or rock accessories also go well with lake house decor and tie in the outdoor elements with the interior.
Mixing wood and natural textures with primary reds, burnt oranges or deep browns help create the warm, fuzzy glow that is quintessential of lodge decorating style.
A lodge should feel like a place to rest and relax. Accessories should be cozy, comfortable and have ties to the nature right outside your door.
