Summary

Summary

Peek through doors into hundreds of uniquely styled and personally appointed spaces. Sometimes comfortably familiar, other times surprisingly unexpected, each room in Inside Log Homes plants seeds of possibilities for visions of home and hearth. From the biggest notions of carefully styled rooms, to the smaller delights of accessorizing, this book offers suggestions for the intensely personal and expressive world of log cabin living. Even those who may never own a log home will find inspiration in these insights of homeowners and professional decorators.


Author Notes

Cindy Thiede has authored and co-authored numerous books, including The Log Home Book, American Log Homes, and Hands-on Log Homes. She and her husband have spent 20 years photographing and writing about log home architecture. They have designed, built, and restored log homes for themselves and clients.


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.
