Get the Look: Marin's Cabin from Men In Trees

Get the Look: Marin's Cabin from Men In Trees

Although sometimes I can't decide whether or not I actually like the ABC series Men In Trees, I can tell you that I've always been a fan of main character Marin's charmingly rumpled cabin. It's so homey, and the fact that she's often found hibernating under a woolen blanket or stretched out in front of a roaring fire only reinforces this notion.

To find out how to get Marin's hibernation-worthy cabin's look, just

The charm of Marin's cabin is enhanced by its jumbled, comfortable, and Alaskan shabby-chic appearance. Marin probably bought most of this furniture from tag sales and the occasional Elmo, Alaska flea market, which is a perfect way to get this comforting, eclectic look. Marin paired a mix of unmatched dining chairs with a solid wood table, so take a cue from her and make this mismatched look work. She also successfully mixed feminine elements with heavier, masculine wooden furniture. For the bedroom, she chose a classic wrought iron bedframe whose starkness is tempered by lovely heirloom quilts.

To finish the look of Marin's cabin, choose a mix of warm and cool paint colors in eclectic tones. Pair damask or floral curtains with sheer white cotton panels for privacy from Elmo's mostly male population. Don't forget some cozy throw rugs and nature-inspired accents. While you're at it, make sure to keep your hearth ready for an impromptu snogfest before a crackling fire. And since the outdoors are so integral to this cabin, finish off the look with Adirondack chairs on the front porch and cute bird feeders in the back. Check the widget for even more ideas.

to me it seems like a lot of 50's/60's style. I think if you go for that you can acheive the look.

Seriously Casa? I LOOOOOOOOVE Men In Trees! I was so upset I couldn't watch it tonight, because there was a local Christmas special on. I love the Alaskan Shabby-Chic, would kill for the antique bed and branch table lamp.
