Summary

Summary

Strolling past logistics, we turn to the pleasant challenge of interior decor and the wide, unfettered world of color, flooring, fabric, and furniture.Cindy Thiede peeks through doors into hundreds of uniquely styled and personally appointed spaces. Sometimes comfortably familiar, other times surprising and unexpected, each room may plant the seed of possibility for your own emerging vision of home and hearth.From the biggest notions of carefully styled rooms to the smallest comforts and delights of accessorizing a home with your favorite things, Inside Log Homes offers suggestions, understanding, and inspiration regarding the intensely personal and expressive world of log cabin living.


Excerpts

Excerpts

Introduction There is a log-cabin ethic at work in America. It is not all about curling wisps of smoke and one-room cabins--although, perhaps, some shared, uncomplicated memory cradles our collective soul. Conscious or not, it has inspired a renewed interest in log homes, one that started back in the 1970s when America propped open one dubious eye for a renewed peek at the ubiquitous log cabin. A few hardy souls grabbed their axes and headed for the woods. Excerpted from Inside Log Homes: The Art and Spirit of Home Decor by Cindy Thiede All rights reserved by the original copyright owners.
