I am currently working for a client putting together their mid season collection which they have called Nordic. The set that has been built for the shoot is a log cabin, complete with stone and timber clad walls and floor. It’s all about comfy, cosy, knits, throws, cushions and lanterns. I was a little bit worried at first that all that wood was going to resemble a swedish sauna but it actually looks amazing.
It seems there is a trend for log cabins, as my favourite salvage hunters and designers, Retrouvius have just show cased one of their latest projects on their blog, a beautiful Swiss log cabin, which has been given a contemporary spin, with their clever use of salvaged materials.
To give me some inspiration and transport my mind to the Swiss Alps or Aspen,which isn’t always easy when it’s only July, I have been looking at log cabin style on my favourite site for sourcing ideas, Pinterest.
