"Load Up on Logs"


I love old homes. I have dreams about buying an old farmhouse and renovating it.

Sure, they have their issues but they also have so much charm.  Part of that charm is typically a beautiful fireplace and mantel.  Problem is, in an old home many times they're non-working fireplaces.  I'm amazed by all of the ways homeowners and designers can come up with to conceal a fireplace that's not in use. 
 
Chalkboards....
 
 
Mirrors....
 
 
Stone....
 
 
 
However, my favorite is stacked logs.  I'd actually seen this trend before but never really paid any attention to it until I read about it last week on The Mustard Ceiling blog.
 
I love this organic look.  It makes use of the space with a functional item that suggests its' use even though it's not usable. Genius!
 
 
 
The round logs, all cut at the same length creates an even more symmetrical and modern look.

So, what do you think?  I'm thinking about using this in an upcoming project in a coastal room like the one above.  Leave me a comment, I would love a second opinion.
 
Also, if you're on Facebook and Twitter be sure to "like" and "follow" me.  I'm starting a new Holiday Household Tips series where I'll be posting/tweeting a tip a day (or close) for the holidays.
