That's why, lately, I've been more and more attracted to these gorgeous country cabins set somewhere far away and remote. Usually, this is somewhere in Wyoming (because I'm currently obsessed with Wyoming), but this rustic Idaho cabin, set almost at the base of a beautiful mountain range, definitely stole my heart.
Obviously, if you live somewhere surrounded by mountains, your home needs to have great views. And this family did just that considering that two whole walls are basically windows. That's right, you'll be waking up in the morning and seeing the sun rise over the mountains (if that's the direction the sun rises from, maybe not).
It's a smaller space, especially with a family of 4 (or 6 if you count the dogs), but you have to imagine that they spend most of the time outdoors anyway.
I love the commitment to the House on the Prairie lifestyle here. There aren't really any bells and whistles. Inside, you have everything you need and not more. Even the color palette stays perfectly neutral. Not only is, literally, the entire house made of wood, but earth tones also abound in the furniture and decor. Not that that's a bad thing. After seeing the massive leather couches that face the windows, I can't really imagine any other piece of furniture being a better fit. Of course, I am forever drawn to rustic decor anyway and this definitely fits the bill.
Wouldn't this be the perfect way to unwind after a long day? Is it completely wrong to have a life goal of being a stay-at-home wife somewhere with mountain views and time to craft? Although, having never lived anywhere rural, I'm sure there are plenty of downsides I'm not seeing.
