Children’S Activity Desk And Chair Set – It seems the rustic cabin and lodge seem decorating motif has gained much popularity nowadays. Picture yourself here: A rustic log home, standing among the pine trees, so it is steep metal roof dripping with dew from the morning’s sharp air, a swirl of smoke spiraling up from the chimney, the birds chirping in the trees, the morning sun rising over the distant hill. A small breeze blowing, just enough to set the wind chimes into a soft soothing motion. The odor of pine trees, the meadow alive with newly opened wildflowers, in yellows, whites, and purples, the sky a crystal clear blue, a hint of wood smoke in the air. You are sitting in your cozy chair, gazing outside upon this royal beauty, a crackling fire dancing in the rock fireplace, you are sipping a steaming cup of hot cocoa, the golden honey tones of your log home, giving you a sense of warmth, calmness, tranquility and comfort.
For those people that are fortunate enough to live this lifestyle, there isn’t any better feeling. For all those of you who only dream this lifestyle, there is hope. You do not need to live in a subtropical forest or nestled alongside a distant lake to provide the inside of your home a warm cabin feeling.Not only are we seeing log homes getting more and more popular, we’re also seeing more and more contemporary homes decorating with the cabin décor theme.There is not merely one ideal decorating design for a home. Your style should be anything makes you feel comfy and protected. You want a place to unwind, a cozy hang-out, a place where you could feel at ease. Carefully consider your lifestyle and customs, as this may play a great role in your decorating theme. Incorporate what you like on your decorating.
Can you long for the cozy cabin feeling throughout your home, or can you just want a couple of rooms that reflect that rustic cabin charm? There’s 1 item that plays a major role in the rustic cabin feel, this item being wood. Oh, the joy of wood! Bringing Mother Nature’s beauty into your home. There’s an abundant variety of beautiful wood products to choose from, some of the most frequently used for interior decorating are: Pine, aspen, maple, hickory, alder, cherry, oak, weathered barn wood and red cedar. Wood flooring can create that country feeling, wood countertops and wood walls add warmth and coziness to your home. And then, we’ve got the furniture and accessories, coffee tables, end tables, dressers, dining room tables and chairs, desks, kitchen cabinetry, log beds, rustic rocking chairs, and the list goes on and on.
Other important facets of cabin/lodge decorating are colour, texture, and lighting. Introducing colour and texture is vital. I’ve discovered that there are no bounds here. I have not found a shade that doesn’t compliment the woodsy environment in a log home. Anything goes, from the light hues of sage green, buttery yellows and powder blues into the dramatic forest greens, rich purples, and deep reds. Accentuate your home with colours you love. Add braided area rugs to the ground, lay Indian blankets across the backs of furniture. Contain rustic touches by adding colorful plush cushions. Gather a bucket of pine cones and match your wicker baskets. Strategically place pottery on tables and alongside furniture.
Place vibrant colored placemats on the dining room table. Add handmade items throughout your home. Scour estate sales and garage sales for antiques and things from previous eras. Think beyond framed art to decorate your walls, anything around the walls can be a captivating display. I’ve a seven-foot aspen log on my bedroom wall over my headboard. It appears remarkable. Carpets and window coverings can also help to enhance the lodge feeling and can be handmade in a fraction of the cost if you have your own sewing machine.
