I have a very strong love for nature in design. More than anything, I love rooms that take the outdoors and bring them in. Where the boundary between interior and exterior is blurred, and you can visit the wilderness from the comfort of your own home. Bringing nature into the home can be achieved in many ways, but today I want to share some beautiful spaces where people have literally broken down the barriers that separate us from the wild.
This bathroom looks and feels like it is part of the woods that live outside. I love how they used natural materials and colors that mirror the forest outside the window! The log column and bamboo wall are great accents here.
This room isn’t actually a room, it really is outside, but I still love it! This is the porch of a treehouse in France built by a helicopter pilot and his son, and the small cabin fits perfectly into its surroundings.
If I had a dining area like this, I don’t think I would ever go anywhere else! I love how the walls are open floor to ceiling, creating the feeling of being completely outdoors, while the ceiling provides protection and the reminder that you are still in a dining room!
This little room looks so warm and comfortable. Would be a perfect summer escape!
This bathroom really is half in, half out! I absolutely love that there are plants and vines growing up through the floor and walls. Tropical!
This room brings nature in without being completely exposed. I really like the stacked log wall, and the opening in the center for the sun to shine through!
This porch looks like the perfect spot to snuggle up and watch the snow fall!
This last image might be my favorite. In this house, there is nothing between you and nature!
