Porch – Welcome to Christmas at the cabin, made to feel like a north woods retreat. Kick off your boots and enjoy a relaxed, festive atmosphere among comforting hues of grey, black, and red.
Dining Room – Our handsome tabletop accents usher in sophisticated holiday dining, alongside a whimsical touch of artistic plates adorned with woodland friends.
Living Room – Get guest-ready with the shimmer and glimmer of the north woods. Galvanized tin and natural elements set the tone for this rustic, yet refined decor.
Sunroom – Birch tree wallpaper transforms this space into a winter wonderland full of nature’s beauty and luxurious accents.
Kitchen – Honor a traditional style of red and green with a new, botanical twist. Festive dishware patterned with vibrant amaryllis puts one in the holiday spirit.
Master Bedroom – This room pulls together a mix of metallics, feathers, patterns, and natural elements of the southwest.
Sports Den – From football to baseball, this tribute to Minnesota sports teams is a sure win! Faux tin wallpaper creates a casual atmosphere to play a board game or cheer on your favorite team.

Girl's Bedroom – Made to feel fabulous, colors of rose gold, accented with white and gold for a style that is sophisticated and on trend.
Warming House – Sure to be the neighborhood hangout – warm up with a cup of hot cocoa after playing in the snow.
