Charming Log Home ~ Creative Cain Cabin

Are you ready to see the most charming log home ever? Today I’m featuring Dawn’s beautiful cabin home in this first segment of my new Charming Home Series brought to you every Sunday! I can’t tell you how excited I am to bring you the best of the best in charming homes! My goal is to share a variety of styles with you since charm isn’t confined to just one genre.

For my first feature, I’m showcasing Dawn who blogs at Creative Cain Cabin. I’ve been following her story for about 2 years now. I think you’ll find her home as charming as I do!

Creative-Cain-Cabin-Living-RoomHere’s a corner of Dawn’s living room. Note how she uses a mix of white and color against the earthy, wood walls and floors that are reminiscent of log cabin style. She has a knack for balancing the colors throughout her rooms.


Creative Cain Cabin Living RoomPart of the charm of Dawn’s home is the abundance of personal touches, like the big white star resting on the floor in the background and the custom pillows that add softness and pops of color.


Creative Cain Cabin Cow Print in Living RoomDawn has a creative eye for artful arrangement of beloved items, like the cute cow print (which I absolutely adore) with a mix of blue mason jars and other prized possessions.


Creative-Cain-Cabin-KitchenLet’s take a moment to ooh and aah over Dawn’s charming log home kitchen! Once again, notice how she uses color in this space … green bar stools, a yellow pitcher on the windowsill, and a red apron hung by the French door. The letters spelling BAKE add whimsy to the space.


Creative-Cain-Summer-KitchenThe use of white cabinets provides fresh appeal against the wood paneled walls, keeping the room bright and cheery. Doesn’t it make you want to invite yourself over for a cup of coffee?


Creative-Cain-Cabin-Dining-CornerVintage bakeware and dishes lend color and style in the corner cabinet of Dawn’s dining space. It’s easy to see she loves color. Part of the appeal of her charming log home is that you’d feel comfortable visiting …  it’s a bright, happy setting.

Creative-Cain-Cabin-BedroomMoving onto the master bedroom, you’ll see that Dawn has infused her colorful prairie style in this space, as well. Yellow, buffalo check curtains provide a soft backdrop to the green end table adorned with a galvanized bucket full of sunflowers. I’ll bet they were picked fresh from her yard.


Creative-Cain-Master-BedroomA ruffled bed skirt and simple quilt add softness to the master bedroom. Wouldn’t you love waking up in this room and enjoying breakfast at the simple green farm table just steps away? I can’t imagine ever waking up on the wrong side of the bed in this room!


Creative-Cain-Cabin-PorchDawn’s a girl after my own heart, with her love of wildflowers and simple textiles.


Creative-Cain-Cabin-Summer-PorchHer porch is ever-evolving from season to season. It’s always a joy to see how she changes it.


Side-Porch-Creative-Cain-CabinAnd lucky girl … she not only has her front porch, but this side porch as well. True to form, Dawn has styled it with the same charm you see throughout her home. Her style is truly refreshing and I always get a happy feeling when I visit her blog.


Creative-Cain-Cabin-Charming-Log-HomeHer home also has a world of beauty around it, too! Blue skies and green fields for as far as the eye can see. I think “idyllic” is the perfect word for describing Dawn’s charming log home.


A special thanks to Dawn for allowing me to feature her home in the first of my new Charming Home Series! Be sure to visit her at Creative Cain Cabin for even more inspiration! I know you’ll love all that you see over there! And stop by next Sunday to see yet another charming home!
