This large cottage mixes the stone and the wood creating a beautiful rustic piece within the natural scenery. The stone chimney is the most eye-catching element that truly sets the tone for the cottage’s aged presence. A charming cottage with a big deck and big windows is a wonderful getaway place for anyone who loves to have a great view of the nature even from the comfort of the indoors.
The concept of a treehouse can inspire a house set in the clearing among the trees still lifted above the ground but clearly setting itself apart from the nature with a noticeable sand-colored exterior. When the color scheme of the treehouse matches the surroundings down to a T the little house has the tendency to completely blend in and can usually benefit from an element that stands out just a little bit such as a light fenced deck.
A smart blend of contrasting finishes that include copper stone terrazzo and beeswax plaster create a fun interior where artwork and accessories add bright and vivacious color.
As kids we all loved treehouses. They were the exciting little escape into a fantasy world where we could play high above the ground and plot our adventures. As adults some of that adventurous spirit still lies within us but now it’s mixed with a dream of a luxurious home and a peaceful getaway.
