Cabin Style in the Adirondacks

Style author Amanda Brooks' winter family home in the Adirondacks was designed by her mother, Elizabeth Stewart. Come this time of year, it is decorated as a rustic winter paradise! This is great example of a type of site specific design that works well in a particular setting, and all the elements here are absolutely perfect to ride out a snow storm in glorious style: rustic stone and wood, a smattering of Native American textiles, a few traditional antique pieces mixed in, and pine boughs...all elements that you can bring into your own home for a touch of classic holiday style.

It all reminds me of a lovely Christmas I once spent at the iconic Ahwahnee Lodge in Yosemite National Park. It's gorgeous...

Happy designing and Happy Holidays!
