The log homes are originally simple and small, usually consisting of only one room of modest size and included a loft for sleeping. Settlers built these types of homes themselves as shelter for themselves and their families. They had to be built quickly and efficiently due to weather, enemies and predators.
A small cabin with a sleeping loft would be similar to the early, historic examples. However, unlike the early models, these modern dwelling places would have indoor plumbing, a real floor, and divider walls or separate rooms for privacy. The location might be somewhere tucked deep away in the woods, near a private lake. Serene, peaceful surroundings like this make for a relaxing getaway, far from the cares of the modern world.
Decorating a log cabin can be a lot of fun while scouring the local antiques markets. You can look for hand painted wooden signs, rustic decor and wooden furniture. Fine details such as wildlife inspired serving pieces for the table, art that includes botanical themes and other decorative details that compliment the theme of the outdoors are perfect for a home such as this. Decorating this type of home is easy and enjoyable, as the overall decor is fun and casual.
Small or large, the interior of these types of homes are cozy, comfortable and appealing. Log cabins are a perfect way to get out and enjoy nature, get away from the concrete jungle and enjoy your family and friends in an enjoyable atmosphere. Consider the location of your home as well, since having skiing, shopping, or water sports nearby are a wonderful way to spend time relaxing. The possibilities are endless
