Contemporary and modern design elements come together beautifully in cozy living room. The checkered swivel chair, tufted ottoman and shag rug make for a nice place to kick back and relax. A glittering gold table lamp and gold log-shaped side table lend a shiny dose of style. Fun geometric wall art, fresh flowers and succulent plants add the finishing touches.
This living room incorporates uniquely designed furniture to bring about a huge wow factor. The curved green sofa sets the stage for the room’s modern style, but also offers plenty of practical seating. The log-wrapped coffee table adds a touch of nature and makes for a wonderful conversation piece. A traditional-style side chair is paired with a minimalist side table. A large photograph, a tall vase of greens and a few accessories add the perfect finishing touches.
Make It: Pick up firewood from a local vendor, then cut the logs into round or ovular placards. Once cut to size, use acrylic or latex paint and a detail brush to add names or holiday messages. For a more 3-D look, consider using wood or metal letters attached with wood glue. In keeping with the rustic motif, choose rope, twine or burlap ribbon to attach the bark to the chair, keeping it held in place with fabric weights stitched along the front edges.
This corner chair features sharp lines and a soft, velvet blue finish. The chocolate brown throw pillow echoes the dark coloring of the wood floor. A painted log stool adds a beautifully rough texture to the otherwise sleek decor. A tall silver floor lamp is equipped with a built-in glass tabletop.
This restaurant is contemporary and modern, clad in wood and earth tones. Large windows open up the space, which is important when darker colors and materials are used. Built-in booths on both walls plus leather upholstered chairs create a cozy environment, key in making diners comfortable during log meals.
A bench with multiple pillow and two dining chairs provide cozy seating around a table that resembles a tree. The tabletop is made from a large log slice, adding rustic charm to the space. A metal orb-shaped chandelier illuminates this interesting table while natural light streams in from the surrounding windows to keep the space feeling bright.
This charming great room wows with high ceilings, industrial metal supports and exposed ductwork. Stone walls give the space an Old World feel, yet contemporary sofas and animal hide chairs bring an amazing, updated element. Space to store logs near the fireplace is both functional and decorative, and the TV above the fireplace makes this room truly multipurpose.
In the living room of this Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna created a masculine, rustic design for the family to enjoy. A dark leather sofa and rawhide chairs provide seating in the space, while a metal and glass coffee table provides a bit of modern flair to the space. A live edge mantel piece mounted on a stone fireplace complements the rustic design, while a log end table and vintage sepia photograph help to complete the space.
Decatur is known for its distinct, historic neighborhoods, eclectic food, and vibrant downtown: it is not known for log cabins. My clients are the owners of this unlikely urban retreat and wanted to design a space that provided a TV-free zone to read, relax, eat, and play games as a family. Red chairs were the pop that this space needed. The table was custom made and can expand for guests. We lined store-bought curtains to make them look higher end and put a roman shade of the same material over the large kitchen sink. It pulls it all together. It's a cabin, yes, but that does not mean every detail needs to be rustic!

My clients are the owners of this unlikely urban retreat and wanted to design a space that provided a TV-free zone to read, relax, eat, and play games as a family. This little reading nook is my favorite vignette. It is my client's favorite spot in the house. She has her morning coffee there daily. The chair was hers but the shelves were added to have storage and interest go up the wall and showcase their family pictures and items I sourced in flea markets all over Atlanta! The pouf and blanket were "must haves" from the very beginning.
