My parent's are wanting to do a little sprucing up of our northern Michigan home and asked me to pull together some ideas for the living room. Our home is used primarily as a ski house, however, it is not a cabin or A-frame chalet. In thinking about what direction to go in, I immediately thought of the iconic Hudson's Bay point pattern. It is rustic while not being overly woodsy and works well in all seasons (second homes in northern Michigan tend to be very summery or very wintery).
For those who are perhaps unfamiliar with Hudson's Bay point pattern, it is trademarked under the historic Hudson's Bay Company and is distributed by Woolrich. The blankets are 100% wool and made in England. The origin of the blankets date back to the late 1700s when they were used as a form of currency in trading between trappers and Native Americans. With such history it is hard to go wrong with this pattern, however, I like it best when mixed with more modern elements. See below for some inspiration images.
