French Treehouse Envy

Envy is almost getting the best of me.  One of my favorite regular bloggers has recently gone on an adventure that I long to embark upon (again) myself.  In February, Gabrielle Blair of Design Mom moved her family to France for a year.  In addition to her regular posts, she is also now sharing the adventure.  The whole story sparks my ingrained wanderlust and makes me long to do the same.  It’s almost too much.  And then I saw this.

This tree-house is an ‘unexpected discovery’ that until they arrived at their new house in France, they didn’t know existed.  Talk about a perk on top of pretty present. I just don’t think I can take it!!

The owners of the house (the Blairs are renting) built the little house without buying anything.  Everything was found on-site, scavenger for or picked from nearby woods.  I love that it came with a key collection and a tea set already in side.  And a ‘frame’ for the view.

If these images aren’t enough make you envious too, Gabrielle has even more treehouse images over on Design Mom.  And if you long for this sort of thing too, you can make yourself sick with envy as well by reading about the whole France adventure.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
