Modern Rustic

It's official, as of the end of this month Ed & I will be proud owners of a cabin in Montana (eek! and yay! see a couple pics here).

Good thing I have a memory like an elephant - because a long, long time ago Ed promised that if we ever got a second home, I could decorate it as I see fit (yipee!). 

Of course, we're poor now so I'm going to be doing a lot of thrifting and shopping at Ikea, and the cabin is actually a bit bigger than our condo (x2) so I'll have a LOT of rooms to furnish - but I'm up to the challenge!  My plan is to decorate the place "modern rustic."

Some inspiration:
 (the inspiring piece was the sheepskin rug you can barely see)

 (cowhide rug here I come!)

 (one room already has olive walls)


  1. ooh how exciting for you! i'm sure you will have a blast decorating!

  2. Let me know when you go shopping... And I'd love to go w/you! :D
    So far I love what I'm seeing!

  3. Congratulations! What fun to have a new space to decorate as you see fit. I feel like West Elm could have some great, affordable pieces that work w your modern rustic concept.

  4. Thanks Melissa! I've been lusting over a few things at West Elm. They totally have the modern rustic look going!
