Hello! I’m so excited to share some log home decorating ideas with you! I was privileged to be hired to decorate a client’s vacation log cabin. It has truly been one of the most rewarding jobs I have ever done!
I’ve got a ton of pictures and ideas to share with you. So, grab a cup of coffee and let’s spend some time together.
Before I show you all of the decorating pictures, I want to take you on a little tour of the place. This cabin sits on over 50 acres. It has a very steep and winding driveway that leads up to a gorgeous view of the Tennessee countryside.
The view at the top is unbelievable. Tennessee is really a beautiful state!
This guy greeted me whenever I came to work. I may have shared a few apples with him.
This is the view as you come up the driveway. The driveway actually ends in the back of the log cabin.
The new owners built this separate garage. The large cedar garage doors are stunning. My trusty Jeep awaits unloading.
Here, some spring flowers are nestled up against a wooden bench.
As you step off the driveway this rock path leads you to the cabin porch.
The previous owner left a lot of furniture. This was my first view of the living room. What a fabulous open area. I couldn’t wait to begin coming up with log home decorating ideas!
This is the view from the top balcony.
The dining room is directly off of the living room. The table was built by the previous owner. On it sits my notebook ready to be filled with measurements and log home decorating ideas.
The back door leads directly into the kitchen. And the kitchen opens up into the living room.
Don’t you love the vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom?
Here is the upstairs bedroom. This cabin has three bedrooms, two downstairs, and one upstairs.
The beginning of the story:
Before we jump into the really fun part, let me tell you what was actually the first job.
My client lives in Dallas. He called me at the end of October. The first job he wanted me to do, was decorate the cabin for Christmas, as a surprise for his wife and three teenage daughters. I had three weeks to complete this task! The shopping alone was exhaustingly fun!
In three weeks, with the help of my hard working mother, we decorated five Christmas trees, several Christmas wreaths, hung tons of garland, tons of bows, a total of six rooms decorated, and had outside lights installed. We were covered in glitter everyday!
On the evening the family flew in, I headed out to the cabin and turned on all of the Christmas lights, and had a CD playing Christmas music in the background. My client called me the next day to tell me that when his wife walked in and saw the cabin, she cried. I was happy.
This is the post all about “Christmas at the Cabin”, and the fun I had incorporating rustic decorating ideas.
