Blog Cabin Dining Area

Rustic cabin-style decor marries well with more ethnic-chic accessories: pottery, baskets and rattan furnishings. Vintage oars discovered in the barn are displayed to add texture and echo the design of split-rail fencing across the street from Blog Cabin 2010.

Blog Cabin Foyer

A feature compliments of Josh Temple and the House Crashers crew, the entryway is clad in bluestone, a material quarried just a few miles from Blog Cabin 2010. Vintage oars, horseshoes and a license plate, discovered in the barn, stand in for wall art.

Ridge Beam Bench

Crafted from the roof's original ridge beam, a bench creates a makeshift mud space in the front entryway and accommodates small storage baskets. A 75-year-old, two-man saw, discovered in the barn, was used to trim the beam down to size.

Cedar Shake Closet

The front entry, which lacks traditional closet space, benefits from a freestanding cedar-lined wardrobe built by the House Crashers team. The furnishing is clad in cedar shake; the closet door – a hinged barn door chosen by online voters – was fashioned from shiplap pine left over from the ceiling construction.

Entry Foyer

With the addition of iron scroll hooks, a piece of old barn wood finds new life as a rustic coat rack. Decorative pillows in the home's color palette of grassy greens, sky blues and earth tones soften the nook.

Blog Cabin Dining Room

A plush wool rug defines the dining space, where a 7-foot dining table in a dark-wood finish is paired with broad-shouldered dining chairs in a striped velvety fabric. Handwoven and hand-finished natural rattan end chairs, topped with button-tufted seat cushions, add texture.

Elevated Storage

The top of the cedar shake closet provides additional storage space or a surface to display artwork – in this case, glazed ceramic, mouth-blown glass and seagrass-wrapped glass vases.

Pine and Bamboo Console

A handsome solid-pine console, adjacent to the dining area, corrals serveware. Folding doors, faced with bamboo, open to reveal adjustable shelving.

Serving Platform

The console doubles as a staging area for entertaining. Sage green stemware and stoneware plates serve up style; a silver serving tray adds a hint of shimmer.

Cut-Glass Mosaic Mirror

Like the sparkling waters of Kauneonga Lake in Bethel, N.Y., a 42-inch-wide mirror, framed in cut-glass mosaic tiles, sparkles, shimmers and changes color as light conditions change in the room.

Dining Room Accents

Another subtle reference to the home's overall color palette, the dining table is topped with hand-crafted vases in sea-inspired blue and green, earth tones and natural textures.

Blog Cabin Dining and Living Rooms

The dining area extends into the living space and boasts a spectacular view of Blog Cabin's backyard. The 14-foot gabled ceiling overhead is clad in wide-plank shiplap pine; two eight-blade ceiling fans installed along the ceiling's dark-wood-finished ridge beam cool the space during summer months.

Cabin Wall Art

Wall art, nearly 5 feet wide, mirrors views from the living room and kitchen windows. The canvas takes on added dimension as the sun sets and light filters into the space.
