Contrary to popular opinion, treehouses aren’t just for Peter Pan’s lost boys and similarly high-spirited kids.
Adult treehouses have been making recent waves among the treetops, with many taking the literal high ground when it comes to dwelling within the birds and branches.
An adult treehouse can be a place to escape the stresses and burdens below and relish a bit of carefree time up above. For some, the treehouse acts as a studio and/or study room, while others view it as a miniature couple’s retreat. Many view their treehouse as a second home or vacation getaway, and go one step further to outfit their leafy abode with modern amenities and considerations.
In terms of design, these luxury adult treehouse ideas can be as opulent or simple as the inhabitant prefers. Bay windows and balconies to sip a glass of wine from, hammocks to nap in, and multi-level lofts–these are just a few components of the modern–and adult-only–treehouse.
If childhood has taught us nothing else, it’s that the simplest joys are undoubtedly the best, and quite often carry over into adulthood. If anything, we need those simple, childish joys more than ever, and the updated treehouse is the perfect way to invite the best of your youth into your grown-up realm.
