If you love being at one with nature, relish adventure in the great outdoors or simply crave natural beauty in your life then you’re going to adore this modern rustic cabin in the forest. Entitled ‘Treehouse’ by visualiser Tomas Sciskala
, this hideaway home looks the perfect place to bring promises of outdoor escapades before long evenings in front of a crackling log fire. You could argue that you can do that in a tent, but a tent won’t bring you glorious design, a family sized living room and dining room or a full sized kitchen, not to mention a breathtakingly impressive master bedroom with a rather quirky ensuite bath.
- There’s not much call for decoration with a stunning view like this, people would and do pay to get wallpapers and mural decals to emanate this kind of natural beauty. The huge feature windows take up much of the wall space.
- The largest wall area is built in stunning raw wood that extends up and over the ceiling, where it is supported by massive wooden beams.
- The remaining walls are rustic stone, with a dividing wall picked out in deep teal paint where these concrete planters hang.
- A selection of rugs warm up a wood floor in the living room area, next to a green upholstered sofa and a child’s rocker. A single suspended shelf holds a few personal treasures.
- Over in the very generously sized kitchen a large dining area seats the head of the table on a colourful stool, two diners on modern outdoor chairs at one side and offers flexible banquette seating at the other. A large pouffe by the glass provides a soft window seat (or a large dog bed).
- The eclectic decor of this contemporary cabin creates a magical air. Against the backdrop of fiery hued autumnal trees this home looks like its fresh out of a fairytale.
- There is a duo of matching pendant lights over the dining room table and a large woven shaded pendant brightens the lounge along with the warm glow from a log-burning fire.
- The bedroom pendant lights are a collection of clear orbs of varying sizes and positions, which hang like a small glass art installation above the centre of the sleepspace. They prettily reflect light from the window by day.
- The teal dividing wall on the bedroom side is covered with a design that features exotic wildlife and fauna.
- Bespoke furniture fits into the tier-fall of this room. A set of shelves have been carefully cut to fit around chunky wooden ceiling beams, and a bench seat runs below the sill of a huge window.
- A recess in the dividing wall holds bookshelves for the bedroom. The headboard of the wooden platform bed features detailing that melds it beautifully with the intricacies of the wall decoration behind. A grey and bronze wall sconce is mounted to the headboard feature wall, directly over a simple bedside table.
- Bringing the outdoors in, a large indoor planter beds a line of shrubs and wildflowers. Various examples of art hang on the bedroom walls, though it is tricky to decipher what is a picture and what is a picture window. Both are equally as eye catching.
- Reading chairs make a nice addition to any bedroom, and this cosy upholstered design next to a simple black reading chairs floor reading lamp would be well used in a cabin that appears to have no television or computer desk. Afterall, it would be sacrilege to be glued to a screen when you have all of this on your doorstep.
- The indoor plants make you feel that you could reach them and keep on walking into the trees, as though the window pane were an open doorway.
- The wardrobe is an exposed closet system of garment rails, shelves and decorative storage boxes. A pendant light hangs next to the clothes to aid in easy selection. The back of the closet is made from frosted glass. Beside the wardrobe, a clear glass wall and door openly reveal the ensuite bathroom.
- The transparent wall makes soaking in the tub a sociable event if other family members are present in the home. Perhaps more alarmingly, the toilet is located directly on the opposite side of the lightly frosted glass that backs the closet… This makes things a little up close and personal if one partner is selecting clothes whilst the other is using the facilities!
A section of the closet opens out as a cubby on the bathroom side, next to the toilet that’s installed at a jaunty angle as though it were a casual accent chair – a nearby bookshelf even accessories it as a reading chair. It really just needs a floor lamp now to complete the look but the homeowner has to make do with a pretty yellow glass pendant light that is suspended over a peacock blue vanity unit. A vessel sink sits on top of the blue high gloss drawers, which is filled by a wall mounted antique look faucet. A huge round frameless mirror completes the look.
