INTO THE WOODS
How to channel the summer-camp vibe
Maybe it’s been a few summers since you and the rest of the Chickasaws snuck over to the boys’ side of Lake Winnipesaukee. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still get in on the stylish summer-camp vibe we’re seeing everywhere, from the hippest Montauk hotels to the latest Wes Anderson flick.
Here are a few ways to get the look:
Go prêt-à-porter. While we wouldn’t condone any coonskin-cap purchases, we’re totally into rope necklaces ($395), feather earrings ($12), retro hiking boots ($80) and classic bandanas ($6). How awesome would these embroidered badges ($12 for four) look on a weathered denim jacket?
Embrace accoutrements. From fishing lures to lanyards, camp is quite the place for accumulating kitsch. In small doses (no elk heads, please), such treasures make for quirky-cool decor: We’re talking gorgeous arrows ($95), pocket-size field guides ($26), leather-crafted key chains ($32) and old-fashioned play sets ($28).
Get log-cabin chic. As we mentioned last week, we’re all about wooden interiors. So naturally, we love the camp-cabin aesthetic at home. These branch candleholders ($32 for six) and tree-stump side tables ($200) would do the trick, but we’re most coveting Robert Norman’s handmade sassafras rocking bench ($480), which is stunning indoors or on the porch.
