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.
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.
