Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Log Cabins and Country Decor

Posted on: March 28, 2009

Log cabins and summer vacations are a wonderful way to escape the fast paced life you deal with daily in the city. From New England’s woods to the Northeast to the many  lakes, both large and small,  of the Midwest, log cabins are the rage. The log style of these cottages and cabins can be round or plank siding, but are almost always small, simple, rustic havens.

Comfort and practicality are the keywords in cabin and summer cottage dwelling. You’ll walk past a couple of adirondack chairs or rockers,  through a screen door,  onto the wood floors of a large room with an open kitchen at one end and a fireplace taking up much of one wall.

Your kitchen cabinetry may well be plain painted wooden shelves, the table, a large wooden picnic table with long benches, and a braided rug on the floor.  A graniteware kettle for brewing the coffee  and a cast-iron skillet for frying fish will complete the picture.  Big, comfortable, and well-worn sofas, chairs and ottomans will be casually placed around the room. Lamps might be made of metal, wood, or duck decoys!

You’ll find home-made patchwork quilts tossed casually over beds and bunk beds in the bedrooms, with wooden or metal storage chests for clothing, books and toys. The furnishings  should be unpretentious, eclectic, and unmatched. Birch, pine or cedar are the woods of choice.

Accessorize with your sports equipment…fishing poles, rife mounted on the way over the fireplace, photos of the “great catch,”  the kids water skiing, or making s’mores outside over a campfire.
