Outside in


While I often fantasize about being able to spend all day outdoors, by the end of the day I always crawl back to the classic comfort of four walls and a roof. Not always an avid camper, I find it hard to give up the comforts of home - hot showers and soft beds just can't be beat. I've realized what I really want is that seemless blend of indoors and out.

I love discovering clever design that serves multiple functions - like this beautiful 'green wall' by i29 Architects in the Netherlands. While aesthetically beautiful, this living wall provides green space and increase air quality and acts as a natural insulation. The perfect statement wall in an all-white space.

These are amazing! My kind of camping, all clean white lines and just screams fresh air!

I like the IDEA of outside, lol. Naw, I like being outdoors during the day but you'd never catch me at a campground overnight :)

This reminds me of Walter Gropius's glass houses in the midwest! These are so fabulous!

Zhush and CraftyFox - and even a lovely hot shower right at hand!

Brandi + Cristina - isn't that the best blend of all?

Looking forward to getting some new house plants for our new place, unfortunately nothing quite so extensive.
