The In­side Scoop

Log Home Living - - FLOOR PLANS -

“Dar­lene and I didn’t want a stereo­typ­i­cal log home with antler chan­de­liers,” Roy says. A retro ski chalet vibe was more their speed. Logs can be a great back­drop for a wide range of styles — so be sure to talk about your pref­er­ences with your ar­chi­tect or de­signer. Here are a few de­sign el­e­ments that the cou­ple mixed with an­tique fur­ni­ture pieces to help them pull off a dis­tinctly eclec­tic look:

Unique rail­ings. Dar­lene and Roy spec­i­fied black wrought-iron rail­ings for the home’s deck, not the rus­tic wood spin­dles of­ten used for log homes.

Brick ac­cents. In­stead of fac­ing the walk-out level’s walls with stone, the cou­ple picked a brick that matches the ex­te­rior of their pav­il­ion.

Global in­flu­ences. Dar­lene chose Mex­i­can-style tile in teal for the home’s floor­ing.

Plenty of glass. A prow-front de­sign cap­tures the view and fea­tures expansive fixed-pane win­dows.
