Warm Inviting Living Room Decor
This warm living space, designed by Murray Arnott, is centered around an impressive stone fireplace in the middle of the room.
Wherever you look, your attention is automatically drawn to this feature piece due to the large, handcrafted ceiling logs which each meet the stones in the center. The spotlights are also a clever way of drawing our focus to the feature piece, shining onto the fireplace from every angle.
This warm feeling is created using different wood types, using both dark and light wood to contrast each other.
The rest of the lighting also adds to the ambiance of the room, with plenty of warm lighting, placed around the outskirts of the room, and a large centerpiece chandelier.
Many log cabin living rooms enjoy the benefit of having tall cathedral-style ceilings which make the space feel light and airy, this room has managed to achieve that while maintaining a warm and cozy feeling.
Kitchen Design Tips
This kitchen design creates a really luxurious feel, yet also manages to maintain a homely atmosphere.
By choosing quality materials such as solid wooden cabinets, cast iron light fittings, and marble worktops, you to can recreate this same look.
Another great way to achieve a well-balanced design like this one is to mix a range of rustic materials with more sleek modern ones.
You could also try contrasting woods for a homely feel. In this room, the difference between the cupboards and the logs is only very slight, however, if you wanted to create a more dramatic look you could opt for dark stained cupboards and lighter log walls.
Kitchens don’t typically need many soft furnishings other than the lighting, so make the most of choosing aesthetically pleasing appliances or cooking utensils to add pops of color to the room.
Dining Room Log Home Decorating
If you’d rather have a separate dining space, is there any better option than having windows like these to enjoy the beautiful views?
As with other rooms, ceilings can be a great focal point in the dining room, as this one is. The conical shape adds plenty of height to the room so that it feels large and spacious.
Choosing the furniture to decorate your dining room will depend on the feel and style you’d like to achieve in the room.
In this home, the owners opted for a simplistic yet inviting environment, and the two main focal points are the ceiling and the large windows to enjoy the view.
When choosing décor for your room, you’ll need to decide whether you would like solid wood rustic furniture to complement the logs, or whether you’d like to opt for a more modern feel?
The options are endless when it comes to the soft furnishings too, you could choose gentle spotlights around the edge of the room to create a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy your evening meals in, or you could go for something more impressive such as a large chandelier over the dining table.
Bedroom Furnishing Tips
This cozy bedroom could be replicated into any small log cabin, with some warm fairy lights, a lamp, and a large snuggly throw.
Bedrooms are the place that we all go to for rest and relaxation, so your décor must match this idea.
Color has a huge effect on our mood, so opting for light calming colors such as white, grey, and pastel colors can help to create a calm room to relax in.
Keeping your bedroom clutter-free is another great way to ensure that your bedroom remains peaceful. If you know you have a lot of stuff, try to work storage into your bedroom so that everything can have a place.
Many people opt for a specific theme for bedrooms, an extremely popular choice is the western theme.
You can easily create this by choosing solid sturdy furniture and throwing in some western-themed bedding, a rug, and soft lighting.
If you’re lucky enough to have large windows and a spectacular view in your bedroom, make sure you make the most of this by placing your bed on the opposite wall so you can enjoy the views every morning.
Bathroom Layout Tips
The options are endless when it comes to bathroom log home decorating. From small intimate bathrooms to large rooms with a huge tub as the centerpiece!
The thing we love about this bathroom is the wide variety of materials it incorporates to create a luxurious spa-like feel.
Storage is important in bathrooms, and this one offers an abundance of storage space. If you have a smaller bathroom, you could think about hanging wall cabinets, or even open shelving.
If you opt for open shelving, make sure you have nice bottles to display all your cosmetics in!
Greenery can also bring the outdoors, in and has many benefits. You could choose a lush plant or some smaller potted plants to sit on the window.
The entrance hall is often an underlooked area when it comes to your home, however, it is actually one of the most important areas.
It is the first room you step into when you come into a house, and so it’s important that it feels like a home! It’s also the first view guests will get of our cabin, so you want it to be an inviting space that sets the tone for the rest of your home.
The beauty of log cabins is that the log walls themselves are a welcoming and unique feature. If you can, make the most of the planning phase and add in some eye-catching features within the walls or staircase, such as the upright logs in this cabin.
The flooring is another place you can add some variety to your home, you could choose tiles, carpet solid wood, or even marble!
Think about what you’d like the rest of the cabin to feel and look like before you decide on the décor for your entrance hall.
