Color palette inside the residence is kept largely neutral with white wood and pops of light blue taking over in each room. A carefully crafted space-savvy kitchen and relaxing bedrooms complete this comfortable modern home set amidst a rustic backdrop.
The best part about the cabin is undoubtedly the way in which it stealthily stilts and leaves a minimal eco footprint even as it offers a mesmerizing window into nature’s ever-lasting beauty.
