    Cool idea. But far too cold looking. I would paint the interior a deep warm colour and have lots of thick rugs on the floor. But the concept is fascinating!

    I like the idea that they poured concrete over logs to achieve the log patterns in a null-space log design.
    The bath tub with the window on the forest looks inviting; great for a good long hot soak.
    However, I’d add some patterned rugs and a two cushion sofa with club chair; maybe in leather, and dot some scented candles around. Nice ski-weekend getaway.
