Finishing the Log Cabin Loft

We had the log cabin loft carpeted and we are another step ahead in finishing our log home. It's hard to tell from the photos below but I picked out a color darker than cinnamon toast - more beige w/ brownish flecks. I probably should have gone darker. One of my blog readers had pointed out if you go too light - then the carpet looks pink against the wood walls.

Now I have to buy some "stuff" to put in the loft. I'm having visions of a comfy seating & reading area, a rustic desk and much more. Black Forest Decor has great rustic furnishings and accents for the log home. Greg is pretending not to hear me right now when I show him the catalog and ask "what do you think about this honey?" It's only a matter of time and oh yeah, how about that Bernese Mountain dog?

I really love your loft. I think the carpet looks great, and will certainly lessen the footstep noise coming from above. I think it will also lessen the dust coming down from people walking up there!

Looks like things are coming along nicely! It is a beautiful cabin.

Sandy said...

The sample wasn't my favorite but this looks great.

Really makes the wood stand out.

Dianne - You're right about lessening the noise!

Michele - Reliv - Exactly!

Bobbi - Yes you can!

Jonathon - thank you and thank you for visiting!!

Sandy - I'm ok w/ the carpet - but not in love w/ it. Should've had you pick it out!!

Well, the carpet is wonderfully neutral. You can certainly add some color with the furniture, throw pillows and wall decorations. And depending on how you will be using the room you could also add another area carpet on top of the wall to wall. Or even just runners for the heavy traffic areas up there.

Sometimes the neutral is best to make the rest of the room "pop".

I know it's going to look great no matter what...

WOW! It looks really nice in my opinion! Black Forest Catalog is one of my favorites wish books!

pretty! It will match everything you put in there. That's what is good about neutral.

Shellmo said...

Dianne- I was thinking darker furniture would make it "pop" like you said.

Connie - thank you! I'm always waiting for Black Forest's sales...

Wendy - you're right about that - neutral doesnt clash!
