The rosy roof of this log cabin goes amazingly with the gentle look of the light wood. The entire setting feels very coherent and serene perhaps due to the rocking chairs and the swing on the cabin’s deck.
A wood cottage can easily pull off a more modern look and still hold the title of a remote getaway that represents a serene atmosphere. The A-frame design is a strong rustic element and provides a great balance to the all-glass front wall.
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 wooden log cabin normally blends in with the natural environment but when that environment consists of mostly stone and big trees the dark wooden cottage absolutely stands out with its distinct brown color among the green and gray backdrop.
It is both the searing heat of and durability of composite timber that encouraged the architects to use it while shaping both the timber screening and the generous outdoor decks. It is the deck that connects with both the living area on the first level and the bedrooms on the second level and usher in the outdoors.

The bunker is not the only upgrade that the Brighton Residence acquired with a new outdoor living area being added next to the living space inside. Extending into the backyard and pool area the new extension houses a portable lounge TV fireplace and even barbecue zone. A timber landing connects the spa and lap pool with the rest of the setting and the entire backyard seems like a world in itself – an ideal retreat for a stylish staycation!
