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?
