Overview

Whether at camp, at the lake, in the mountains or high off in the backwoods, we all cherish our memories of summer vacations at the cabin. Maybe it was enjoying the coziness of log bunk beds, playing games with cousins and friends, diving off wooden-plank docks, fishing from the riverbank, being lulled by the rustling breeze or mesmerized by the riffling stream or slapping waves—whatever, these experiences linger in our memories.

The homes and camps presented in Cabins are making new memories for today’s families. Some are contemporary homes that incorporate rustic furniture; some are traditional cabins with great rooms and high ceilings. All exude the warmth of wood railings and stone.

Engaging, impassioned, and always entertaining, Kylloe has an eye for rustic detail and signature style of photography that makes this, his thirteenth design book, exquisite in every regard. These homes feature idyllic settings for family fun and entertaining, masterfully crafted rock fireplaces and sensual rustic furnishings to covet.

Featuring homes across the upper United States, from New England and New York to Montana and Washington.

Read an Excerpt

I've spent the past thirty years in the rustic design business. Log cabins and all the natural surroundings and furnishings that come with them thrill me. Rustic homes have come a long way in the past few decades. There seems to be a much greater concern for "green" considerations than there was just a few years ago. And along with that, many designers of traditionally built homes are incorporating rustic elements into the their structures. Builders are adding a rustic porch or a rustic den or living room. Designers are adding a piece or two of very high-end rustic furnishings to traditional residential settings.
