A simple shelter, somewhere peaceful, surrounded by nature … wherever you dream of having your quiet place, these rural escapes are for anyone yearning for a different kind of existence.

It’s no secret that I’m pretty cabin obsessed – I built one in my back garden last year, I’m always on the hunt for the perfect wall cladding, and my nickname for our Abigail Ahern Flowers store is “the cabin”. So it probably won’t come as a surprise that I adore this book, Cabin Porn by Zach Klein and Steven Leckart.

Incredible photography, the most amazing rural spaces you ever seen, along with stories of people who have created their dream. This is my favourite book to get lost in. This book honestly makes you want to slow down, walk in the forest and hang out with nature. None of the homes it features are blingy or sleek – they’re projects, they’re handmade and they are all incredible. Chocker full of idyllic settings this book makes me want to go pack a bag and head to the forest in a cabin. It’s a dream that one day may just well become a reality.
