It’s a normal part of the human condition to want to get away from it all. As these cabins from around the world prove that longing is a universal need. But just as home design has evolved over time so has that of cabins. While log versions of the buildings are still built there’s plenty of modern—and even future-thinking design happening too.

Exposed brick walls large glass windows with black steel frames and decor that complements the vintage aura of the home come together to shape a truly exceptional living area.
Even though the house adopts a distinct loft-style look modern elements and warm lighting help create a softer more inviting living space that is not a bit too edgy. With wonderful views of the city skyline from the top level and custom decor and accessories the smart conversion creates a clever balance between the past and the future!
As with the home above the residence below features a shingled roof a popular choice for traditional stucco homes. A tropical vibe is created by the white stucco of the home below the minty color of the shutters (which mirrors the deep blue-green of the pool) and the palm trees that surround the house.
Large windows bring in a certain sense of openness to the design of the contemporary structure while smart insulation keeps the winter chill away. The contrast between slate and cedar on the outside also helps shape a unique façade that lets the Watch Hill House stand out instantly with a personality of its own!
White stucco is a breath of fresh air—the perfect complement to tropical settings as a breezy vibe is created when lush greenery meets light-hued homes.
