Mix materials. When re-creating the warmth of a vintage cabin, I alway opt for wood floors. It’s softer than tile, both aesthetically and underfoot. Using reclaimed or distressed wood will take this look one step further. Then think about bringing in other interesting materials, such as a copper farm sink or hood vent. They're beautiful now, and they'll only get better. Pairing rough plank cabinetry doors with antique or mismatched knobs and pulls will keep the room primitive. To complete the look, turn to companies like Elmira, which produce period appliances.
