For Today’s Lifestyle
Decorating a log home can be a fun and creative activity that might involve trips to antique shops, country stores and flea markets to find that special look which could transform your log cabin home into a comfortable, unique and personal retreat.
If you don’t live in a log home or cabin, you can still decorate as if you did.
Its your home, after all. In fact, having something as unique as a log home interior in the middle of the city might just be the personal statement you need to show!
Real log homes have the advantage, of course, because they have the walls, beams, doors and other elements that make anything you put in them look rustic. But, even with modern sheet-rocked walls and thermal windows, you can still make your interior bring about thoughts of the wild west!
THINK “NOW”, DECORATE “THEN”
The great thing about decorating a log home is that you can mix classic western antiques with modern, colorful accessories that add interest and high-tech toys and appliances that add convenience. In other words, let your creativity go wild!
Use modern accents which replicate the past in a new way. Mismatched accessories are reminiscent of classic log cabin decorating, so don’t be afraid to experiment with the things you already have. A western lampshade with a rustic base, an American Indian throw on your modernleather sofa or hand-made accessories in your high tech kitchen could change everything in your summer retreat log cabin.
While you’re thinking about adding a pioneering spirit to things you already have, think about your lighting options, including recessed lighting, silhouetting and other types.
Consider lamps or a chandelier with flickering, low wattage lights (they’re even made in economical LED versions) for those times you want to get your “pioneer” on! And kerosene lanterns make great decor items.
Don’t clutter your rooms, or “over accessorize” because you can lose any motif, color scheme or design statement you originally had in mind. The one thing the settlers, who popularized the log home, had was a gift for simplicity. Sometimes, less is more.
Personalized log home interiors are the most comfortable environments and the most unique interior decorating challenges. It’s a decorating opportunity to make your home your own, whether you choose a traditional “pioneer” look, a country western motif or a modern eclectic design. And it doesn’t matter whether you have a condo in the city or a log home on the range.
