Eclectic style encompasses the grand as well as the cozy, as displayed in this log cabin decor. The key to the home's unique style is that it balances awe-inspiring architecture with warmth and livability.

Handcrafted logs add the necessary warmth, while the interior decor brings color and comfort. The vaulted great room comprises the living room, dining area, and kitchen, but each room has its own elegant identity that complements its neighbors.

For example, the bar in the kitchen is mirrored by a low wall that defines the dining area. Wood flooring and the log posts and beams tie the whole room together. The kitchen's stone walls are repeated in the master bedroom, where round log beams give way to ornate timber-framed trusses.
