So… what’s your style? What will you be decorating the inside of your log home like?
Are you going for classic and rich looking? Modern and hip? Smooth edges & curves or sharpe edges and fine lines?
What about rustic? Have you considered themed housewares like moose… black bears… or other woodsy decor?
He considered “black bears” as a decorating theme.
I said I’d rather save the black bear motifs for the log cabin that we rent when we’re in Gatlinburg, but I would consider something non-traditional… like a songwriting-/slash/-music motif.
How To Pull Off A Music Theme
You see, we have a ton of close-up photographs that we’ve taken through the years of musicians, singers & songwriters — most of them have been quite popular. And we have a fair amount of “personal stories” to go with many of them, as well.
I thought it might be nice to frame some of the close-ups as black & whites in frames of varying sizes. Add a couple of Hatch Prints to mix it up a bit and add some nostalgic flavor. And then keep our eye out for just the right additions — like a sheet of music signed by someone famous, or a guitar signed by someone else… you get the idea. Music stuff!
I’m not going for a museum here, just a small collection highlighting our experiences with some of the more musically-inclined people who’ve crossed our path. (Living here in Nashville, there have been quite a few.)
The fact of the matter is… in a log home, anything goes!
Like… don’t think for a minute that you can’t decorate your log home with beachy, sealife decor if you want to either — even if you live nowhere near the water! (We almost did this, but I was afraid of looking too “cutesy”. I was going for more of “the rustic sea life” with ships’ wheels used as picture frames & clocks, navigational compasses, lighthouses, and such.)
With the right accent colors and furnishings, your log home could reflect just about any mood, activity, or style that you wish.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
