Though this cozy log cabin is located in the United States, by the atmosphere it resembles such popular in Russia wooden huts. Interior finish is entirely made of wood panels – the owners decided not paint the walls and ceiling leaving a natural shade of wood. It is interesting that the family of a jewelry designer lives here, so special attention is paid to elegant details and interior decorations. Beautiful house!
Everyone knows that best winters are in Norway, with lots of snow and real frosts. It is no wonder that Norwegians know a lot about winter rest, and their wooden cottages are always so cozy and warm.

Real dream!
This old house built in the 40s once was a home for current owner’s mother, so the main goal for the renovation was to carefully preserve the past while creating comfy modern interiors for a young family. As a result, there is such a noticeable contrast between the facade and the interior design. Outside, the house is dark and even slightly gloomy. But inside you will find a whole variety of textures, material, and colors. The interiors are noble, stylish, there are many different prints, retro furniture and vintage accessories. The perfect combination of past and present.
It is hard to think of a better place for a tranquil family weekend than this picturesque glade in Vermont: there’s nobody around, only wild untouched nature and the rustle of trees.

Western celebrities usually do not like to expose their well-being to the show, so their homes are rarely filled with garish luxury. And this wooden cottage of Hollywood actress Amanda Seyfried, that is located two hours from New York, proves the rule. The old barn built almost 100 years ago looks rather modest on the outside, and inside the emphasis is on cosiness and natural materials, though not without fine design from General Assembly studio. Here the romantic comedies star comes on weekends to recharge, ride horses and reunite with nature. Let’s have a look!
Designer from Canada Lynne Knowlton is a real romantic as only romantics can create such interiors. “Sleep under the stars, listen to the rustle of the treetops, smell the scent of pine trees” – together with her husband they created this fabulous cabin in the woods of Ontario so that from time to time they could run away from the world and spend a day or two amidst a serene nature. And although they built this tiny house for themselves, it was later decided to rent it out – now anyone can experience these incredible emotions. Amazing!
Architectural studio Zrobym offered a fresh and modern approach to the traditional Russian dacha architecture, creating a very stylish and contemporary wooden house in the suburbs of Minsk, Belarus.

This cottage is modular, that is, it was manufactured by parts beforehand and assembled directly on the site. Great small home!
In this project everything was right from the very beginning: the couple asked TS Design studio to create a home that would perfectly blend into the local nature without cutting down a single tree.

If the house should be a reflection of its surrounding nature and make a harmonious tandem with it, then this Wisconsin home is almost ideal. A wonderful family cottage by the lake seems to have absorbed all the best that neighbor nature has to offer: gorgeous wooden beams, natural stone finishing, textiles in neutral tones, live plants. And designer Martha O’Hara just very skillfully combined all this into one beautiful design. Hope you’ll love it!
