About the Project

A cozy log cabin in need of some love ♥

Making the main floor reflect the true essence of the clients’ log cabin was the primary goal for this project. The clients were looking for an old-world European feel they so loved and experienced during their travels – but with a twist – coming in the form of some industrial elements.

The original interior was minimal at best in terms of materials, storage and any design flair.

20 years ago the clients committed to invest in the important structural elements of the home, knowing that they would eventually re-do the interior when they were ready. That philosophy was adequate to get them ‘in the door’ so to speak but it was definitely not the final vision they had for their forever home. Fast forward to 2018 and we were invited to work with the client to create the vision they held dear in their hearts. A little over 9 months later the re-birth of this log cabin is everything they (and we) dreamed of.

“Anne-Marie has a great eye for design and conception while being very patient in providing helpful suggestions. Working with Anne-Marie solidified the benefits of having a professional designer to make our vision into reality. Having a designer like Anne-Marie take on all the creativity and make everything fit together, has been instrumental in realizing the look we were seeking in our log home; a non-traditional home. Throughout our project, Anne-Marie and her team were truly creative which resulted in a superior final design. Our kitchen is exactly what we envisioned and even more! I would not hesitate to recommend Sheridan Interiors to anyone in need of a designer who is creative and meticulous.”
