my scandinavian home: A retreat in the Catskill mountains

A retreat in the Catskill mountains

Thursday, 26 June 2014

With the summer holidays fast approaching it's important to plan the perfect downtime. For me it's to retreat to nature, at least at the start. I would love to say I'm a camping kind of girl but sadly all I could muster under canvas is about one night (two at a push!). I'd much rather stay in a lovely cabin by the sea / or lake. If you like your wood cabins too I think you'll love this country house in the Catskill mountains owned by Amanda Bupp (and captured by Maxwell Tielman). Decorated in monochrome and neutrals you could almost believe you were in Norrland, Sweden and not the Southern part of New York state. I could wile away my summer here, how about you?!

For more information about this lovely cabin and where items are from check out the full article over at Design Sponge.

In case you missed them I'm also dreaming about this Stockholm archipelego cabin, a lighthouse-keepers cottage on Gotland and all the other home-tours under rural retreats! *Sigh* I feel relaxed just looking at them!

How do you like to spend your holidays?


  1. I love this place! Such fabulous simplicity. And so funny to see you post it today as my Catskills inn just got featured on D*S this afternoon! Small world. Btw, I've been loving your recent round ups of summery cabins! Lots of great inspiration.

    1. What a coincidence! I'm off to check out your inn now! :)

  2. I love the simplicity and elegance of scandinavian design. I enjoy camping but I agree with you, there is nothing like a cozy stay in a cabin. Either way, being in the woods or by the lake and enjoying time with close friends and family is what makes it special. Lovely post.

  3. How beautiful and calming this retreat is.
    Only worry would be no curtains in the bedroom .....?

    1. Well spotted with the curtains - I looked really close to see if there were black out blinds (sometimes you can't see them in the picture) but no.....

  4. Nice interior designing and interior furnishing!
