Design by Terrain: A Winter Woodpile

Even if you don't have a wood-burning fireplace, a well-stocked woodpile can add rustic appeal to winter gardens and porches after the growing season comes to a close. To brighten the decorative woodpile at our Styer's location, the creative team at Design by Terrain added a splash of paint to the end of each log. Emphasizing the unique, geometric shapes of the split logs, the pop of paint elevates this traditional garden accent. (For those with fireplaces-- keep in mind that the painted logs shouldn't be burned later.) Our designers chose a sophisticated, all-white palette to match winter's snowy landscapes, but they also recommend painting a few logs in brighter hues for a more festive appearance during the holidays.
