When I was little, I was captivated by the Disney film "Swiss Family Robinson." I loved the storyline and the characters, but what I most loved was the idea of living in a treehouse.
Treehouse life seemed utterly romantic and adventurous, and I can remember thinking that Fritz and Roberta were wise when they decided to stay and begin their joint life on the island.
While I can't say that the idea of full-time treehouse living seems quite as fantastic as it once did, I still love the idea of a treehouse escape.
It seems like a perfect tranquil place to step away from the hectic pace of everyday life, whether in your own backyard or perhaps even as a quaint vacation home. I would happily load up with books, magazines, and snacks and sneak away to read and nap in this treehouse featured on Cote Maison.
Should you tire of being among the leaves, a daybed close to the ground would be a perfect accompaniment to your getaway in the trees.
