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. For booking information, visit Treehotel.
(N.B.: The treehouse is featured in Taschen's new book Tree Houses, Fairy Castles in the Air.)
