The Scenic Idaho Home

This year nearly 11 million fans voted online to decide how the DIY Network Blog Cabin 2015—a run-down ’70s mountain house set on 8 acres in Coeur d’Alene, ID—should be renovated and decorated. After builders reduced the home to its foundation and rebuilt it from the ground up, a team of designers—including HGTV and DIY Network stars Matt Muenster, Josh Temple, and Alison Victoria—and HGTV Magazine editors were invited to bring the fans’ decor choices to life. 


Classic and casual, the approximately 12-foot-by-16-foot space gained pizzazz after we painted 7-inch-tall blue stripes on the off-white walls (Bracing Blue and Creamy, both by HGTV HOME by Sherwin-Williams). Furniture with staying power, like the upholstered bed and the streamlined dresser and nightstand, will look stylish for years. Abstract art prints, a mirror, and a vintage basket hung above the dresser have a collected-over-time feel. A plaid wool throw pulls together all the room’s colors. 


Rustic-luxe touches, including paneled walls, a soaking tub clad in mildew-resistant ipe wood, and wood-frame mirrors with a walnut finish, give the bathroom the feel of a posh alpine spa. Loaded with storage, the 5-foot-wide double-sink vanity has a bottom shelf for help-yourself towels and toiletries. 

Handy “Closet”

A pair of luggage racks and a convenient row of hooks handle spillover from the closet—and transform a corner into an easy-access packing and unpacking station.

Mini Office

Tucked in a nook painted the same blue as the wall stripes, this compact desk is perfect for jotting postcards or plugging in a laptop. We revved up the curved-back beech wood chair with tart lime paint (Green Citrus by Rust-Oleum) to play off the greens in the art.
