Lodge décor

For people who love to spend their time outdoors, incorporating lodge décor at home will mean translate their living space to represent the vast outdoors. Lodge style décor originated from the concept of the hunting lodges that were located in the Midwestern and western parts of United States. The furnishings and the construction were chosen to match the environment and over time log type furniture became a trendy home décor option. Pine, oak, fieldstone etc were chosen for construction and making furniture as they were easily found in the locality. These days lodge décor includes furnishings with pine cones, acorns, moose, deer's, bears, mallard ducks, trout and bass etc.


Realizing the lodge décor effect

  • The wall colors enhance lodge décor thus choose colors matching the earth tones. Either wall papers or paint to this color effect can be used. Choose the wall colors such as green, brown, rust or yellow, colors that match the external environment and match the colors of nature.

  • Alter the windows, walls, furniture's and flooring of the house to blend well so that in every respect they project a perfect lodge décor.

Deep green, rust, and brown colors are popular colors and festive bandana prints, wildlife motifs are the most popular prints used.
