Every home lights up for the holidays, but there’s something about a log home, trimmed for the season, that’s a little bit more magical than the others. They’re eye-catching, warm and oh-so cozy. We offer you a gallery of festive homes to get you in the holiday spirit.
White Christmas. Could this be Santa’s Workshop? The understated elegance imparted by simple strands of lights against a snow-covered log home create a holiday scene worthy of good ol’ St. Nick.
Happy Holidays. From stockings hung by the chimney with care (opposite) to cookies and cocoa by the tree (above); an inviting entryway that welcomes family and friends with open arms (far right) to collapsing in the comfort of holiday-inspired bedding at the end of the evening (right), every space in a log home deserves a little holiday attention.
Deck the Halls. This magnificent home is the epitome of rustic Christmas elegance. Natural pine boughs wrap along the exterior timber posts and beams (opposite top and left) — a perfect complement to the rough hewn texture of the logs and trim. That naturalist vibe is carried inside with the whimsical tree, and mantel, decked out in golden pine cones, burlap and ornamental twigs and grasses. The result is nothing short of gorgeous.
The Most Wonderful Time of the Year. December is the month when nearly everyone brings a little of the outdoors in. Garland, wreaths, trees and poinsettias take center stage around the world. But no where do they look more natural than in a log home.
