The World’s Brightest Tree House

The World’s Brightest Tree House

Warning: Bold red ahead. At the Treehotel in the forests of Swedish Lapland, a treehouse is painted an unexpected shade of crimson.

The hotel is a cluster of five treehouses, designed by prominent architects, with the aim of helping guests reconnect with nature. In this cabin, designed by Stockholm-based architects SandellSandberg, the reddest of reds is coupled with a tranquil interior palette of white, light wood, and gray.

Intriguing. Tree houses are fascinating but this one is a bit too colourful for me in the serenity of the woods. A good idea if one gets lost easily, like a homing beacon.
