9 rustic-home design ideas that transcend trends and will never go out of style.

Written by Donna Peak


You’d think that log and timber houses would be immune to outdated design trends. After all, their singular, distinctive beauty has been around for centuries and will continue to endure for centuries more. 

But even timeless wood homes can fall into the fad trap. If its lucky, a trend that really takes root has a lifespan of roughly a decade.
