Rustic living

So we are spending this week exploring West Wales and everything that Bluestone has to offer, starting off by staying in a lovely wooden lodge. We are getting a real dose of fresh air and it's made me think about how much I love rustic living and interiors and thought I would share some of that inspiration with you, especially since it's winter there seems like no time better than dreaming of sitting in front of a log burning fire with a thick blanket and a cup of warm hot chocolate.

I would love to one day be able to have a getaway log cabin somewhere in Scotland, a place detached from the manic life we sometimes all lead. I lived in Scotland for more than 2 years, mainly in Edinburgh but also on the West Coast near Fort William in a small village with 300 people, for a few months and loved being that connected with nature and I think that is why I always have a soft spot for rustic interiors. There are a few pro's to living a more natural and rustic lifestyle

1. Bringing nature into the home
2. Keeping things simple
3. Enjoying handmade textiles, fabrics and the imperfect nature of wood
4. Having a chance to slow down.

What would you dream getaway/holiday home be like?

  2. hope you have a lovely time! and i love the bathroom in the last photo - looks so cosy.

  3. Oh these photos, they are really making me long to escape to a frontier-style log cabin and live in the middle of nowhere!! x

  4. There's something so cosy about rustic living! There's nothing more that I'd like to do then stay in a cosy cabin for the winter months. In fact I'd love to get a cabin in Lake Tahoe this year! x

  5. Love these photos, I want to go and stay in a log cabin now. Have a fab time at Bluestone x

  6. Those images are so beautiful! Wow... I think I'd like a rustic cabin too!
