Cabin Decor Lighting
(ClickArt by Broderbund)

Log cabin decor is rustic and cosy. The interior design comes from the surrounding area. A log cabin decor in the West is much different from a log cabin decor in New England. Western decor will pull in earth tone colours and themes will focus on cowboys, horses, buffalo and Native American tribes. New England decor will pull in the pine greens and bright blue skies of the East. Themes will be fishing, hunting, pine cones, bears and moose. Cabin decor lighting reflects the themes of the surrounding area.

Materials

Log cabin lights are made of brass, wood, glass and wrought iron. Lamp bases may look like small logs or have carvings to represent the chosen theme. Wrought iron may have intricate designs or cutouts of deer, horses or moose. Brass is usually antique brass and simple in design. Glass is milky white or may have etchings of nature themes.

Types

Chandeliers are interesting log cabin lights. They are not crystal, but rustic and unique. Some use antlers along with wrought iron to create a focal point for the room. Table lamps are popular choices for carrying the theme throughout the house. Wall sconces are used as lights and candle holders. Floor lamps add a cosy feel in the living room. Look for vanity lights with frosted shades.

Themes

Antler lighting is a fun cabin theme. It can take the form of chandeliers, table lamps, floor lamps and wall sconces. Table lamps come in every possible theme such as cowboy boots, trout, moose, deer, horses and pine cones. Look for matching floor and table lamps in themes on fishing, hunting and snowshoeing. Ceiling lamps with metal cut-outs of nature scenes can match table lamps with the same rivers, lakes, and mountains along with centrepiece candle holders.

Bathroom

Vanity lights consist of wall lights, ceiling lights, and sconces. Look for wrought iron or antique brass. Consider a dimmer switch in the bathroom to soften the light or brighten the light. Candles are important in log cabin decor. Pillar holders and wall sconces work well in the bathroom.

Manufacturers

American Rustic Lighting has a large theme base and a variety of lights. Rocky Mountain Decor has elegant log cabin lighting, for those who want a less rustic look. Another manufacturer, 100 Mile House Log Homes, has Tiffany lamps, antler chandeliers, lampshades and switch plates.
