Decorating Plans.......

When I am not actively creating in my sewing room, then I am mentally working at interior decorating. If you have been following my posting on our farm blog, then you know that we are in the middle of building a log home. The process is enormously fun. There have been so many decisions along the way....down to each and every light fixture, switch plate, dook knob...not to mention the earlier decisions of where to place each and every wall. With the necessities out of the way, it is now time to plan the rooms. We will move all of the furniture in our present home into the farmhouse, but will need to supplement some of it....such as the bedrooms (the kids are taking their bedroom suits with them) and the loft library area (this is a new space for us and we have no furniture to fill it). I thought I would share some of my ideas with you.

The second floor guest room and loft/library area will be decorated in a cabin style. The bed is a rustic wooden bed and will have "Moose" bedding. Here is a picture of the grain of the wood on the headboard. The footboard matches. The moose bedding is actually a much darker green wool bedspread with a plaid flannel dust ruffle.











The loft furniture will be done in the style of this sofa and chair, but I am using the two fabrics on the right. The Indian blanket print will mostly be on the seat cushions and the seat back. The rest of the surfaces will have the distressed leather look.


I found these snowshoes on Ebay (they were a great buy...apparently no one else was on Ebay during the Superbowl to bid against me) and I will hang them on the wall in one of these rooms....along with outdoor themed artwork from a local painter.

I LOVE the loft furniture plan- the sofa is a lot like mine. The fabric you chose are perfect. It's sounding Lodge-style- at least in the loft, right?

What a fun project. DH has always wanted a log home but after building my current home five years ago, I had to promise to stay put for a while. Love the idea of the loft - can't wait to see your "after" pics!

I am jealous, I have always wanted a log home. I tease and say I want a 3 story log house with a basement. So I will just have to keep up with yours, and enjoy it vicariously. TTFN
