HOW TO TURN A HOUSE INTO A HOME

SOMETIMES IT’S WHAT YOU PUT IN THE HOUSE THAT REALLY MAKES A HOME

When it comes to homes with spacious interiors, it would come as a challenge to really find out what to fill the space with. Here are a couple of ideas from popular interior designer Layne Kula that can help bring out the full potential of your home based on a home she worked with. These ideas can work well especially for homes that are of a log cabin design.

One of Kula’s focuses is making sure everything blends naturally in the home. The colors, the furniture, and the decorations should complement each other rather than compete with one another. For the color palette of the home, she emphasized the importance of using neutral and earth tone colors to balance the already rather dark logs of the house. Her usage of soft materials such as sheepskin rugs and lightly-built furniture such as woven stools also help in off-setting the rigidity of the wood log design.

To generalize Kula’s design choices, she gives emphasis on balance. Using materials and colors that help contrast what the house itself already projects. This healthy balance is what really brings out the coziness of a home. Apply this concept of balance to your home and you’ll surely see and feel the difference.

“So much of this house lived in curating the details,” says Kula. “I spent a great deal of time scouring flea markets, vintage stores, antique markets, and more and was fortunate enough to find a treasure trove of unique pieces, namely a set of vintage wooden ice skates that double as art and an amazing pair of old snowshoes,” she reveals. “They add so much character to the space and really elevate that log cabin feel.” Quite frankly, if this were our lodge, we’d never want to leave.
