It’s not just kids who love treehouses. As an adult, a treehouse can provide the perfect escape, just like a mini-vacation. Add hammocks, a pretty view and some mood lighting. For a royal touch, arched windows and a spiral staircase are a must. And if you are going to share with the kids, swings, slides and flying foxes will turn it into the ultimate playground.

Every pooch deserves a little house of their own! Choose a design that reflects their doggy personality and what they like to do best – whether that’s perching up high, hiding out in the shade or getting cozy with their favorite blanket. You could even have one that matches your own house, whether that’s ultra-contemporary, log cabin style or industrial. Find inspiration in this gallery for your new dog house, today.

Give it a lick of fresh paint to brighten it up and suit your décor. See these ideas and more, right here.
