Stylish Logs

October 24, 2011

Graphic, colourful and perfect for folks like me who don't have a working fireplace, painted logs are showing up in stylish places everywhere.

I love the way these log ends were painted with bright colours and artfully stacked next to the hearth.

Or in a dormant fireplace...

If you're not crazy for colour, paint the log ends crisp white or soft grey — perfect for wintery decor and at home in a neutral room scheme.

For more ideas, see Andrea Mills' post on Decorating With Wood Logs.
