Anyway, in all this craziness the roommate and I have also been planning a getaway to my parents' cabin in Wisconsin in August and I am starting to wish it was coming a lot sooner. I could definitely use a break, but I'm sure we all could right? Of course the cabin in Wisconsin looks nothing like this amazing getaway home in Michigan I found, but it's helping me daydream so who cares! I actually found this home on a Chicago design firm's site. Alan Design Studio has done a lot of work in and around Chicago, but this was one of my favorites. I love how the wood in the kitchen and livening room really brings in that rustic cabin feel, but it's still completely sleek and modern. Perfect for those of us that like the idea of getting away to the woods, but would rather not fight off spiders and mosquitoes all day.
I love this bedroom! Big bright windows, a cozy bed, and a fireplace? How perfect for a winter getaway. I hate snow and cold, but I think I could survive it if I were holed up here for the winter. Don't you agree?
I actually really love the design of the bedrooms. They're simple and easy. Perfect for a summer home because there's no clutter so you can make it your own for the summer. Like playing with a blank slate.
I can't wait to take a small weekend vacation. I know Wisconsin and Michigan do not sound exciting, but it's where us Chicago folk go for weekend breaks. Anything to get out of the city for a bit, you know?
