A rustic retreat, the mountain lodge may be nestled in the woods or beside a lake. It might be a fishing cabin or a ski lodge or a family vacation home. In fact, the lodge look fits almost any place where you want a ‘get away from it all’ atmosphere in harmony with nature and the great outdoors.
The mountain lodge is casual and comfortable. The color palette is warm and inviting, often using deep red, burgundy, greens and rich earth tones harmonizing with the natural surroundings. Curl up with a good book on oversized upholstered furniture sofas and chairs. Lodge & Lake House decorating combines natural, rustic and primitive design elements – distressed and reclaimed woods, hickory twig furniture, stone and slate. Decorate with vintage items that reflect your local heritage – old photographs, carved duck decoys, nature paintings and memorabilia. Add warmth with blankets, pillows and throws.
