Being Canadian, I've spent my fair share of time in dark, oppressive log cabins, and have a tendency to recoil from the words "wood panelling"..
But this couple took the challenge of an old wood cabin head on..
with a few extra windows, an liberated floor plan, and loads of white paint,
this log home becomes the perfect escape.
Windows, windows and more windows - the view becomes the art.
Truly a great room.. isn't that sliding privacy panel on the loft fantastic?
Love the use of complementary red and green here -
because complements intensify each other, they are best used in small doses.
Just enough colour to anchor this grouping in the massive space.
I wanted to see around this cornaer - alas, no pics.. but I do spy a screened in porch - love it :)
The den and bedroom were painted in subdued, nature-based, cocooning tones - restful and relaxing.
Note the lack of window treatments anywhere in this home, such a luxury to not need them.
I'd happily head here on the weekends..
til next time..
