The Venice cottage of a famous muralist is the subject this unique Home Tour from the LA Times. The resident is an artist whose work can be seen above. This bedroom is actually a converted garage where the walls have been painted to resemble fake wood paneling.

The result is doubly romantic because the couple that lives there met in an Aspen cabin. Finally a storybook ending!

There really is nothing like the rustic lodge style for creating warmth and cozyness. To recreate the log-cabin ambiance check out our selection or see this style guide on the origins of this all-American style.
