Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: We have a beautiful cabin that we purchased as a vacation home. We rent it out on Airbnb when we are not there. We are a family of five: husband, wife, and three young children. The cabin is located among beautiful pine trees. We lovingly refer to it as the treehaus. The great forest treetop views from the front deck are the epitome of relaxation.
This home serves as my retreat, and I am blessed to share it with others. The space represents what I was looking for. At the time, mid-pandemic, I wanted an escape — one where I feel relaxed, peaceful, and comfortable.
The home represents these feelings as it is welcoming with a warm color palette bringing in earthy tones and vibes.
What is your favorite room and why? My favorite room is the living room/dining room. I love these rooms because they really complement each other. The rooms flow and they are inviting. The rooms are cozy, accommodating, and charming.
Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Warm and cozy
Any advice for creating a home you love? My advice for creating a room I love is to incorporate colors that make you feel good, personalize the space with items that mean something to you, and make sure each item has a function and that it all flows.
