Hey all! Sorry it’s been a bit radio silent – it’s been a busy summer full of taking care of a busy 4 (now 5!) month old, starting a new business venture, and taking lots of trips! One such trip we took recently was to the southern part of Washington state for a weekend with some of our very best friends! We all rented out a huge designer cabin that fit 10 adults and 5 kids comfortably. It was super fun, even if a little chaotic haha; full of playing games, hanging out, eating yummy food, and our sweet girl got to have her first time in a big swimming pool! Check out the photo below:
She wasn’t quite sure about it – she had fun splashing but then got miffed when she splashed herself in the face – which was 99% of the time! Anyway, on to the designer cabin tour. I’ll warn you now – the pictures aren’t that quality. I had to take them with my cellphone and had to do it at warp speed before all our friends arrived and claimed their rooms with their stuff! And there aren’t photos of every room and space, just some of my favorites. So these photos are more to give you an idea of what an awesome space this was vs. showing it off perfectly. Anyway, here goes!
Here’s the entrance to the cabin. I say “cabin”, but it’s basically a super nice, big house:
My favorite part of this house was the kitchen – huge big windows, gorgeous marble countertops and backsplash, room enough for everyone around that massive island (there was no additional dining space in the house) and the cool light fixture.
This is where we spent most of our time hanging out. I love the marbling on the island countertop and it’s fun how they brought it up and used it for the backsplash instead. I’m not usually a fan of dark cabinets (I prefer white or a color like navy or green) but these worked surprising well, helping to ground the large airy space.
I really liked the pendant light fixture! While I don’t think it exactly fit the vibe of the rest of the kitchen or the designer cabin itself, I do think it is a beautiful light fixture in general. The rustic wood and Edison bulbs would be perfect in a rustic industrial or modern farmhouse space!
The kitchen was connected to the great room, which had a large sectional, TV, and open air gas fireplace. The rock fireplace column was really stunning and added a lot of great texture and a visual focal point.
I absolutely adored the coffee table they had chosen for this space! It’s made from wood rounds, all adhered together and set under a heavy plate of glass. I feel like this coffee table fit the cabin/woodsy vibe perfectly and it was a stunning piece of furniture that was also functional. We had kids playing with their toys on top of it all weekend and it held up beautifully.
There was lots of storage space in this house, and a lot of ENORMOUS TVs. I know this TV doesn’t look that big in that picture, but it was ginormous. Like literally huge.
Next is the master suite – some of our friends stayed in this room, so I don’t have a ton of pictures. But it was a beautiful and open airy room with vaulted ceilings, another giant TV, and a painting that also happened to glow in the dark haha.
The master bathroom was a super cozy and beautiful piece of craftmanship:
The floors had river rock tile interspersed between the wood grain tile and were also heated – perfect for winter trips up to this wooded chalet! The walk-in shower also featured the same rock tile, which I feel like would be a dream on tired aching feet!
I feel like the cabin vibe was well-played in this bathroom. Not all of the bathrooms had the same finishes, and this one was by far the nicest/most on-theme.
I would’ve loved to have taken a soak in that bathtub! Doesn’t it look just divine??
Next are a couple quick views of some of the other bedrooms (there were 5 sleeping quarters in all). First up is our bedroom, which featured a queen bed, en suite bathroom, and was right off the kitchen in the main area. It was cozy, spacious, and well-furnished. But the one negative that trying to put a baby to bed while people are rambunctiously playing games 5 feet away is a bit difficult!
There was bunk room, which is great for kids, and also featured a TV with an Xbox.
This space below was above the garage – sort of a mini mother-in-law sort of space, if you will. There’s the bed seen here, then another bedroom with a queen/twin bunk through the door on the right.
It had it’s own little kitchenette, which was super cute and functional, as this space was actually a fair hike away from the main living area – you had to go through a long corridor, then up some stairs. Again, all the finishes in this house were great and very high quality!
And that’s the designer cabin tour I have for you! Apologies that there weren’t more/better photos, but I just wanted to take a few quick snaps to share with you all as I will never own/photograph a house like this as my own home haha.
Just for funsies, here’s a snap of some our friends (and my hubby and daughter!) hanging out in the kitchen. It really was the perfect place to share meals and play games and we had a load of fun being together. Can’t wait to plan our next trip! 🙂
If you had a designer cabin, what would design features would you have?
