Cabin inspiration

While I usually prefer decor that leans more toward modern or transitional, our current house has elements of a cabin. The setting (in the mountains) and the cedar siding, as well as the wood ceilings in the house all scream cabin!  

I've been torn about how to decorate. Do I go full-on cabin or do I mix modern elements in with the cabin detailing? Or, do I gut it and go all modern despite the exterior and surrounding landscape? Okay, so a major gut job is not in the budget and truth-be-told, the cabin style is growing on me. Take a look for yourself at some of the amazing cabins that are out there. 

I love the railing on this one:

It's a lot of wood, but the high ceilings and ample lighting keep this living room looking spacious.

Love the deck!

Is this a cabin powder room or what?! (Are they still called powder rooms in cabins?)

Wow! I would love to have breakfast here!

There is nothing like getting cozy next to a cabin fireplace.

This cabin kitchen mixes in painted cream cabinets to break up the stained wood. 

Cozy cabin bedroom.

A modern take on the cabin.

I think it may be possible to sway my decorating style ever so slightly to the rustic side. I can't commit to a completely rustic cabin with floor to ceiling wood, but I do plan on keeping some of the existing elements in my house and possibly even incorporating some new cabin charm into the decor.
