Such a beautifully dressed holiday home, don't you think? A great blend of rustic elements and luxurious touches, this cabin feels effortlessly fresh, elegant and inviting. Christmas decor was kept to a minimum yet festive enough for the holidays. The bright and airy kitchen and the stone walls are particularly my favorite! I am truly inspired by this charming farmhouse, how about you, my lovelies? Are you a fan of his rustic chic decorating approach as well? What are your thoughts?
