Eastern Washington Cabins

Inspired by their client’s energetic and outdoor-loving lifestyle, Swivel Interiors designed a hardy and low maintenance aesthetic while still exuding a good dose of eclectic spirit for a pair of Eastern Washington cabins.

  • area / size 900 sqft
  • Year 2020
  • Type Multi-Family,
  • Approximately 900-square-feet each, the cabin’s locally sourced, durable material palette includes salvaged wood, exposed plywood, concrete flooring, metal siding and tin roofs among other materials. Colors used were inspired by nature. Throughout, authenticity was a must—materials and furnishings were sourced from a mix of family collectibles, vintage stores and selected new quality, multi-generational lines. Each cabin has a wood burning stove to gather around. All of the cabinet hardware, bathroom accessories and drapery hardware were custom crafted by Black Dog Forge. While the dwellings have under-counter fridges and coffee machines, the focus on meal time is at the main house or one of the impromptu barbecues.

    Interior furnishings are mix of Old Hickory (in business since 1899), bright powder-coated metal furniture from Room & Board, and some custom designed pieces mixed with legacy pieces (literally salvaged from the client’s storage locker). Other selected interior elements of note include: Ralph Lauren outdoor fabrics and bespoke pillows; vintage Ficks Reed lounge chair reupholstered in a spunky Bretano outdoor plaid; rugs from Driscoll Robbins; Dekton countertops; Etsy vendors for both shower curtains; Pratt & Larson tile; and, pendant lighting by Barn Light Electric.
