If there is one genre of books that I could peruse for hours, it would be coffee table books. Especially ones about decor! Now that we finally have room for a big book collection, I’ve been building quite an assortment. Naturally, my current favorites are books about cabins and the Americana decor aesthetic. So today, I wanted to round up a few of my favorites that are inspiring me lately, especially as I tackle another makeover soon in our own cabin (stay tuned!).
Coffee Table Books about Cabins Inspiring My Next Makeover
Hide and Seek: The Architecture of Cabins and Hideouts by Sofia Borges
I could page through this book for hours. It’s all about people who have given up city life in the hopes of living in nature. One of my favorite aspects of this decor coffee table book is that it doesn’t exclusively cover minimalist, modern structures, but instead also includes rustic structures, too.
Modern Americana by Max Humphrey
I am always on the look out for new books to inspire my decor aesthetic. These days, I’m really into the curated Americana aesthetic with schoolhouse-inspired accents and camp details. Think tons of plaid, brightly colored powdercoated metal, and woolen blankets. Max’s decor work is some of my favorites, so I turn to this book often for inspiration. We even incorporated some of his wallpaper collection into our bathroom vanity area!
The New Design Rules by Emily Henderson
While not exclusively about cabins and cabin decor, Emily’s newest book features her own cabin which I am personally obsessed with! She’s always such an approachable resource for inspiration and info about renovations and making design decisions with confidence. Highly recommend!
Cabin Porn: Inside by Zach Klein and Freda Moon
This is probably the quintessential coffee table book about cabins. So many of the homes featured are built by hand by the owners and it reminds me so much of our own quirky cabin. I especially love the overall feeling of warmth and coziness that the homes in this book evoke.
The Maine House: Summer and After by Maura McEvoy, Basha Burwell, and Kathleen Hackett
Just because our cabin is in the Pacific Northwest doesn’t mean that inspiration can’t come from other regions! As someone who grew up on the east coast, New England will always hold a special sort of nostalgia for me. This coffee table book is full of SO much styling inspiration, especially if you’re like me and love to get a peek into people’s collections.
Still: The Slow Home by Natalie Walton
This interiors book is more about the philosophy behind slow living, which plays such a big part of choosing to move to the middle of nowhere and live in a cabin full-time (in my opinion…). The book details 12 different homes and homeowners who have chosen a path of living more sustainably, focusing on living a more holistic lifestyle, and supporting the smaller, local communities.
This book goes so much further than cabins! In it, you’ll find inspiring yurts, houseboats, treehouses, huts and more from all over the world. The photography is gorgeous and I love how so much of the focus of the book is about connecting with nature.
