Practical shelving makes the most of the alcove space in this living room, with a large space on the bottom shelf to store logs to fuel the traditional wood-burning stove. Light wooden flooring is teamed with a fresh white rug to match the sofa.
I like the way they did this harth and the color painted behind the stove. I also like the wood beams framing the stove in. Maybe have similar framing and the make a gate around the stove out of the same wood.
love log cabin / with pot belly stove Good idea if no heat present during winter. (We cooked on our stove and heated our house & water for showers/cleaning, one winter when we were w/o electricity for 9 days.
