Summer is finally here, and we are ready to leave the hustle and bustle of daily living behind! We are traveling up those winding roads of the Northwoods to get to the lake and escape the hot and sticky Wisconsin air. Who’s with us?
You’ve probably done some spring cleaning already and taken time to freshen up your outdoor living area. (If you need an outdoor furniture refresh, check out this blog post.) But have you thought about freshening up the inside? Adding decor and accessories to your lakeside cabin can create a cozy, homey feeling with fresh new life. The kind of feeling that renews your spirit for making memories in this new season.
As your interior design guides, we like to highlight a few pieces each season that will help you transform your cabin into a place where old and new come together in a welcoming and cozy way. Which elements are perfect for updating your cabin for summer?
You’re in luck, because today we are sharing our new summer arrivals…
Iron Candlesticks made by Texture
These hammered iron candlesticks are effortless and beautiful. You can add instant interest to your space by decorating with a grouping of three candlesticks at varying heights. We particularly love how their rustic yet timeless feel help set an intimate mood.
We love these newly arrived and unique floating shelves. Lakeside decorating is all about bringing the outdoors in, and these live edge floating shelves are the perfect way to do so. We also have a reclaimed wood option, perfect for displaying decorative accessories, your Old Fashioned-mixing essentials, or even photos of past summer memories.
Pro Tip: Use floating shelves as a night table in tight bedrooms!
Made by Laura Zindel
This nature-inspired feather vase is simple yet lovely. Perfect for holding a fresh bouquet of wildflowers, a large candle, or some colorfully wrapped sweets to tempt your grandchildren. This hand-crafted ceramic vase is available in a variety of designs to fit your unique cabin’s style.
Collective Feathers color print by Barloga Studios
Celebrate the beautiful natural birdlife that surrounds our lakeside with a print depicting various feathers. Hanging in a unique metal and leather frame, this print will pull in the warm tones and textures in the room around it. It’s also a great gift for the birdwatcher in your family!

Decorative Pillows by Ryan Studio
These gorgeous decorative pillows are the perfect addition to a sofa that’s ready for some summer freshness. They are comfortable and made of beautiful fabrics, adding color, sophisticated textures, and filled with high-quality down inserts. You can’t go wrong with a well-made pillow to freshen up a neutral space.
Bicycle Statue by Uttermost.
This bicycle statue expresses the joy of summer! The figure is aptly named Freedom Rider. We love that you can sense the liveliness and life this statue brings to a space. It’s the perfect piece to add to an end table or one of those reclaimed wood floating shelves we shared above. 😉
Bed and Bedding
Bed by Four Hands and bedding by Lakeside Living Design.
Refresh your bedroom with this unique headboard with leather accents and an upholstered frame. It pairs perfectly with these custom pillows in leather and patterned fabric for a touch of luxury and tranquility while you sleep. Read about bedding basics in this blog post.
