The Cabin Porn book came out last week. Late to the game like me and not sure what Cabin Porn is? Well, Cabin Porn started as a digital scrapbook of building inspiration for a group of friends preserving 55 acres in Upstate New York. It grew into a ridiculously popular site with over 10 million unique visitors, 350,000 followers on Tumblr and as of today roughly 59,000 Instagram users (Amazon). 

The tagline of the site is "inspiration for your quiet place somewhere" and features small structures constructed throughout America and across the world. Check out a few of my favorite buildings/photographs.

The site also premiered Greenwood, a mesmerizing 15 minute film by Adam Newport-Berra about the construction of a traditional post and rung stool. 

home feature: the smitten studio michigan cabin

Emily Oster

In March of 2012, Sarah Sherman Samuel - creative director of LA based Smitten Studio - and her husband bought a cabin on Lake Michigan. Pre-renovation I would probably classify it more in the shack/bunker category which is only one of the many reasons that its transformation is so incredible.  It started looking like this...

With a kitchen to match of course...

On the inside Samuel wanted to keep a very neutral, black and white color palette to really give the feeling of being at a retreat.

Samuel did an amazing job transforming this tiny space but its real asset is this view and outdoor living space.
