If you're a hearthless urbanite who craves the rustic charm of a wood pile in your home, then allow us to present a practical solution for nabbing the look. We first fell for this log-cabin-inspired wall-covering in our quest for wallpapers that create a cozy optical illusion. Imagine a panel of these faux logs underneath an exposed staircase!
Starting at $104 for the smallest size, owning it becomes a pricey project, even if you frame a minipanel, which is why I flipped when I discovered this Ikea fabric!
It's just $7 a yard, so the adventurous among us could upholster an accent wall with this Margareta fabric and still not break the bank — or you could create a hemmed wall panel. I opted for instant gratification by picking up a Ribba frame and applying fabric glue to the white mat with the extra fabric folded behind. And, voilà! A large piece of affordable art that lends a ski-chalet vibe to any bare wall.
