  1. You are so very creative, I love every element! I LOVE your mantel, those trees are perfectly winter! I’m terribly sad I missed this round, next round.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Laurie! I hope you can join us next time, too!

  2. I think my favorite part was your new pillows! Cabin style is not my home style, but I jokingly tell my SO, “Oh, honey, wouldn’t that be great for the summer place (which we don’t have!)” when I see a lake/ocean/woodsy treasure! If I had a second…or third home, I’d been right there! You did an awesome job and I can understand why the guys in your household like it!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Wouldn’t that be fun to have several homes to decorate all in a different decor style, Kathy? But when it came to cleaning multiple places:( We are all enjoying our cozy cabin look for a bit!

  3. Oh wow, Lora, do I LOVE how you styled your fireplace! I never thought to use a small footstool as a riser for decor until seeing yours. I have one collecting dust in the basement and it is so coming upstairs this weekend. Dang, regretting packing away my tabletop Christmas trees too! Love the pillows you made too. Nailed it!

  4. I can’t tell you how honored I am that you chose my cabin as inspiration!! I am in love with what you did and how you thrifted the look! You are so creative and talented! Can’t wait to share this!!

      When I heard we were doing a cabin theme, I knew right where I’d go for inspiration! Thanks for letting me use your pic! I know my cabin-loving readers will love your blog!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Cindy! The whole room feels different with the cozy, cabin look!

  5. Marlene Stephenson says:

    I love this look really has some nice color and winter decor, those skis and pillows made the difference.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      It’s amazing what a few different accessories can do for a room!

  6. Wow! Lora, you did such a great job with this challenge. There’s definitely a wintery cabin feeling in your space and what a great job on all of your pillows. I really liked your wood storage idea – now that’s a fun way to use a magazine rack and present wood for the fireplace! Beautiful job!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yea, that kinda came to me right at the end, Sheila; it gives great rustic texture & I love the magazine rack!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks! We’re enjoying the cozy look, right as a winter storm is knocking on our door;(

  7. Lora,

    You did a great job . You made such a cozy cabin feel and your pillows turned out great, love both.

    You’re a talented lady.


    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks for your sweet compliment, Cindy:) I do enjoy making things to beautify our home!

  8. Wow wow wow! You captured this look so well and those pillows really are the stand out element. They make it. Nicely done!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Heather! Yes…I knew it was all about the pillows;)

  9. Oh this is wonderful, Lora! Kristin has a lovely home, and you captured the look so well and made it your own! The pillows are so beautiful! I love all of the winter touches you brought in…it’s all perfect! Great job!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Linda! It’s a totally different look for us, but we’re really enjoying it!

  10. Really cute. Love that plaid pillow made out of an old jacket. What a great idea.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, that jacket was beautifully made, Karen. It was hard to cut up a Pendleton, but I knew I’d actually be able to enjoy the beautiful fabric so much more! And I still have more of it for future projects!

  11. Your living room looks perfectly cozy for winter. Love the pillows that you made! I need to start looking for decor books while thrifting. I love to look through a book and I’d rather buy a used book than spend $10+ on a magazine.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I know, right? I figured I can send them back to the thrift store when I’m done. I always feel guilty throwing beautiful magazines away/recycling.
