More Mysteries of the North Country- #6
Piney views, inside and out. The warmth of pine, aged to a deep amber, coupled with a wood fire (more pine, if only for kindling) in a cabin surrounded by pine, birch cedar and poplar- a rhapsody in wood, as it were. Ever since I was a child, staying in a flimsy motel cabin on a trip to the north shore, I've been attracted to this wall covering material. When I was a little older, I had a bedroom furnished in it. Endless hours where spent imagining what creatures the knots and grain suggested.
I've got three rooms of my current house covered in it (and a fourth with birch paneling and a porch with cedar shakes.)
The outdoors comes in.
