Monthly Inspiration: Adirondack Style

February is the perfect month to be inspired by Adirondack style.  Cottages and cabins in the Lake Placid area of the Adirondack mountains especially.  I used to live about 3 hours away!  When I visited possibly 3 or 4 summers ago, I thought the area was beautiful.  A great place to do water sports, snow sports, and hiking.  Plus the towns have cutest shops.  The decor inside our furnished cottage is what I'm inspired by this month.  Adirondack style is a mixture of greens, browns, reds, and any tones from nature.  It's arts and crafts furniture, moose and deer decor, and leather couches.  Plus who would've guessed that homegirl Lana Del Rey was from Lake Placid, NY?

I found all of these images at Adirondackstore.com.  You can buy a ton of cool accessories if you are trying to emulate the style.  If you're not so good at putting looks together yourself, I found that the site also offers interior design consulting.


Love these map coaster. Don't want to ruin the wooden tables.

Not for hiking, but looking fashionable when walking around the forest.

Hot chocolate or mulled wine by the fire?  Yes, please.

These are awesome for fitting everything you need for a hike or pic nic in the woods.

The quintessential Adirondack style outdoor chair.

Cosy up with this lovely plaid throw.

Because they are cute and warm.

You aren't really camping unless you've used one of these nostalgic wonders.
For the fashionistas, I found this runway version of Adirondack Style.

  4. Now I know more about Adirondack style. Living in Australia, all I knew about it was the chairs which we first saw at our friends home in Vancouver. These chairs are popular in Australia now. I like the style, minus the animal heads.

    1. Yea, these chairs are everywhere, but they originated in the Adirondack area. And I don't think I like the real deer heads either, but I'm not a hunter so that's probably why.
