This great room’s handsome, rustic decor includes natural materials and neutral colors. Texture and patterns keep the color scheme interesting. Woven chairs contribute to the homey look. The homeowner designed the space with three sets of glass-paneled French doors and rafter-high windows to better connect the space with the outdoors.
This great room has a breathtaking wall of windows and a cathedral ceiling, but the main focus is the fireplace. Predominantly made of Cultured Stone, it also has a few real rocks collected by the homeowners over the years. The ceiling fan helps to keep the room comfortable.
Dark colors pop against the light wood in this great room. The furniture arrangement and rug placement adequately separate it from the surrounding spaces as well, while the plush ottoman and myriad blankets and throw pillows create an inviting setting.
This cabin was designed to accommodate six adults and seven children. The great room and upstairs loft are perfect places for rolling out extra sleeping bags and air mattresses.
The floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace provides an impressive backdrop for a variety of antiques showcased in the great room. A train clock, viewable from both sides, sits atop a carpenter bench purchased at a local sidewalk sale, while a Buddy L train set from the 1920s is perched next to an antique quilt at the base of the loft.
The great room’s cathedral ceiling is highlighted by a moose-and-elk chandelier. The room looks out onto a scenic lake, where moose can often be seen swimming or enjoying a salt lick.
Stacked Tennessee fieldstone makes for a stunning focal point in this great room. The golden hues in the stone pick up on the rustic pine flooring. An off-center furniture arrangement with open traffic areas creates an inviting conversation space.
All the doors and trim in the house are distressed knotty alder. The homeowners accentuated the character of the logs by dabbing black glaze in some of the nooks and crannies of the wood.
The interior of the prow is just as dramatic as the exterior. The massive logs, which are softened with a cheerful honey stain, frame a beautiful view of ponderosa pine trees and protected forestland.
The antler chandelier in this cabin’s great room fits the room perfectly, as do the various mementos personalizing the space. Trusses supporting the cabin’s roof are made with a mortise-and-tenon joint system.
