After recently taking my first excursion to a snow-covered Lake Tahoe, I was reminded of how much I love the look of a wintery cabin – when done well. Case in point, Scribner’s Lodge in the Catskills. Once a kitschy 1960’s motor inn, the space has been completely reimagined into a alpine-inspired cool kids hangout.
A modern cabin looks relies on the simplest of elements. Pine. Whitewashed walls. Strong injections of black. But there’s nothing overly complicated. Utilitarian comforts are all you need, but there’s also no need to sacrifice style.
While we probably can’t live this simply all the time, it’s such a relief – a breath of fresh mountain air- when we do for even a few days. As I make my way through the Marie Kondo show on Netflix, I’m going to being taking a good look at what is absolutely necessary to have around.
So while your inbox may be inundated by brands who want you to think spring has arrived two months early, I say escape to a cozy cabin while you can still can. I’m making my reservation right now.
