The only thing I don't like about this home is its location, high up in the mountains, where there's lots of snow.

I think this is a beautiful great room. I like the mantle above the fireplace and the picture is slightly appealing. I like the way they have the room decorated too. That dark blue couch is interesting and unique. I also like the leather one. The throw pillows are pretty nice too.
I also like the lighter colored wood used in the walls instead of the traditional darker tones. They also made sure that there was a variety of colors in their decorating, so you don't get bored.
My favorite thing about the room is the backgammon game on the large wood coffee table.

I enjoy this log cabin bathroom because there is a large tub with rock work and pillars, with a fireplace right next to it to keep you warm. Anytime a bathroom has a fireplace, I'm game. I almost missed the beautiful stained glass windows behind the tub. They are gorgeous. I think that the only way this bathtub could be better is if the back of the bathtub had a fountain trickling down the rocks. I am not sure about the light fixture hanging above the tub though. Do you really need or want a chandelier hanging above your tub of water? Doesn't seem too safe to me. But anyhow, I liked this bathroom enough to post it.

Here is a cute little "staged" cabin room. Even though it's just an advertisement for Hobby Lobby (I LOVE HOBBY LOBBY!!!! but am not affiliated with them in any way...), it still has some great decorating ideas. It has a great use of color, which is my favorite thing about this wall. I like the green "fishing supplies" rack, which is the perfect shade of green in my opinion and a great place to hang your fishing items. I like the barn wood wall paneling and the ladder up against the wall. I like the red lantern on the table and matching thermos on the table. The colors were very intentional in this photo. I like the wall art too. It's very "cabiny".
Cabin art tends to be more fun and relaxed. I found these pieces at an online store and thought they were fun.

I love this bathroom for some reason! Maybe it's the pale colored woods used in this space that gives it a lighter, softer feel. Well, the lighting probably helps. Natural sunlight is a huge help in brightening up a space and can't really be replicated easily. Any artificial light on the market is going to be slightly different than natural sunlight, but there are bulbs that claim to be more natural looking and it's probably worth the time to search these out if that is the look you are wanting to achieve.
The lighting features they used here are pretty great too. The chandelier over the beautiful bronze tub is wonderfully accented by a couple of sconces by the windows. The sinks have some quaint lamp style sconces as well. The water faucet for the sink matches the tub, which is a nice touch. It's always a subtle design choice when you can match metals throughout a room or even the whole house, but is worth the trouble because it gives the home a feeling of continuity or unity.. Like if you choose brushed nickel for all kitchen door and cabinet pulls, it can really unify the space.
Overall, I think this room was wonderfully executed in color scheme, materials used, and the rustic chic design they chose. Let me know what you think!

Well, if this isn't an eyesore, I don't know what is! I'm not sure what made me post this really...it was just interesting I guess. My apologies if this is an annoying post. It's kinda funny to me. Anyway... What would possess someone to build this thing...that is the real question. Is it photo shopped? Or is it real?
Anyone care to weigh in on this one?

Gotta love this cool room! My kids have always enjoyed the loft style bed because it provides them with extra room by making best use of the space available. The loft bed provides them a bird eye view of everything around them and the little homework/office area underneath gives them a super cool space for their business affairs. Haha.
I know these loft beds can be bought online or they can even be made from scratch if you're a handy person. Some come with dresser areas built in and extra storage.
Well, I hope you've enjoyed my post for today and that it has given you some inspiring ideas to implement in your home.

Hi y'all! Hope you're having a great weekend so far! I thought I'd post something fun for today. This is something my kids would dream up, even though it's not one of their creations. I wouldn't know how to get a picture of any of their awesome designs onto my laptop!! And believe me, they have come up with some insane buildings and creations!
This cabin has it all! From insulated ground level living for maintaining cooler interior temperatures, to a rooftop party area complete with disco lighting feature. I could totally live here. There's even a separate guest quarters on the top level for when your friends stay over. And I think that's a garden area! What cabin wouldn't have a garden area anyways?!
Well, off to enjoy the day! I hope you enjoy yours as well!!

Now, this place was probably professionally decorated. I mean, come on. Everything is perfectly placed and matches the rustic cabin theme.
The things I like: I like the use of leather in the furniture. That gives it a rich feel. I like the log beams overhead and high vaulted ceilings. I like the triangular shaped fireplace. It reminds me of Aztec design, or ancient times of the Pyramids.
The things I don't like: The decorations above the fireplace are too simple, as to not draw too much attention. In fact, everything in the room is trying not to draw any attention. Everything is the same color basically, so nothing stands out, except for the fireplace maybe. Everything in this room is subdued if you ask me. I just think it's too safe for me. I like a room with a little risk. More color. Bolder design choices.
I'd put some accents like this in there. It offers a bit of color but still falls within the design of the space.
I like this table lamp too. It's more Southwestern in design and a bit more colorful.
So, overall, do I like this room? Yes, or I probably wouldn't have included it in my blog posts. I definitely think it needs some improvements though. Like some more interesting accents, and more color.
Thanks for stopping by!
I don't think I would like this cabin much. It seems too unstable for me. I like things on solid ground...but it IS interesting!! I guess I could tolerate it for a swimming hang out, like these folks seem to be doing. It definitely has a good view! Haha. That is the perfect swimming hole though, for sure. It looks like nice, clean water, and is pretty remote looking so not many people will be around. If it's privately owned, then you would have the place all to yourselves. I wonder what would possess someone to build a cabin like that, perching on some rock? Maybe an architect or designer, or art enthusiast.
I am in love with this non-traditional cabin bathroom!!! It breaks all the rules, as far as regular bathroom design goes! Most bathroom...
This is quite the bathroom. I don't know of any cabin with this much extra space to have a bathroom this large, but what the hey... ...
My Oh My! This one takes the cake for the week! What a beautiful great room! Looks like they just got done snow shoeing! And I noticed i...
