The log home is an icon of American culture. Log home owners are characterized by a love of nature, coziness, comfort and an abiding self-reliance. Log homes have a wide variety of interior design options; whether you favor classic country or Victorian eclectic, there’s a way to achieve it in your log cabin home. Use color and pattern to define space. Most log cabins follow an open-space floor plan. Use a colorful braided rug to define the living room and a different flooring material to define the kitchen. Display antique lamps, tools, kitchenware and other everyday items from the pioneer era. The natural coziness of wood is one of the attractions of log cabin homes. But along with warmth, the dark wood tones create an interior that reflects less light.
