Bringing The Outdoors In – Top Log Cabins

In a fast paced and technologically reliant world, it can be nice to get back to basics with a stay in a rustic log cabin. The most charming and attractive aspect of today’s log cabins is the fact that nature is all around you.

Whilst many of the homes we explore tended to leave behind nature as they closed the door, many others have embraced the surrounding forests and rivers and even incorporated them into their log homes, creating a truly unique and breath taking property. Some of the following homes used tree branches as an alternative to room dividers, whilst others have made use of glass and windows to frame the picturesque views and bringing light into the cabin.

Moreover, when creating their dream log home, one couple decided they would not be put off by a creek running through their desired plot of land, and so decided to incorporate it into their home with glass floors running throughout, giving a truly unique feel. If you are thinking of building your own woodland paradise, then the key is choosing good wood materials and a good joiner company such as Allstar Joinery, which can make your log cabin truly  natural paradise. And don’t think you have to sacrifice comfort to be close to nature; nowadays log cabins can come with central heating, modern plumbing and a fully equipped kitchen meaning you can get away from it all without sacrificing life’s little luxuries.

Different interior design projects can totally transform a property no matter where in the world you are, for great property in the UK take a look at this estate agent.

A Zen Like Forest Escape

While we’re about living in nature in rather intimate surroundings here at Creatosity, when you see a home this beautiful and designed so well, it has to be shared.

 

 

It seems as though there’s a level of serenity where the sun plays a massive part in lighting the home. It might not be the wooden wonders we’re used to, but this structure has been made from completely sustainable materials. Lighter oaks indoors help create a quite soothing environment to be in. Just look at how the decking outside compliments the interior. A simple wooden panel keeps the semblance of woodland living alive. The home is also thoroughly heated despite having such a large glass front due to a combination of heat resistant triple glazing and highly efficient delonghi radiators which add character to the interior space.

The beautifully made chandelier in the living area made from thinly cut wooden strips really helps secures that this is still a natural home, even when surrounded with slightly dulling tones. It’s a million miles from homes in Chichester (where our little blog is placed) but we like a few of the ideas we’ve seen in this video and think there are some takeaways that could be used in redecorating everything from a little lodge to a garden shed.
