Into the woods

If you're adventurous at heart and always wanted to know what it feels like to sleep in the middle of the woods, now you can head to Sweden's boreal forest and stay at the magical Treehotel. Inspired by the film documentary “Trädälskaren” (Treelover) by Jonas Selberg Augustsen, the seven room-size structures are if nothing works of art. They were built and are run daily with ecological values in mind. The Bird's Nest, one of my favorites, plays with the contrast of a rough exterior and a very slick modern interior. And if you're wondering, people can access it through a retractable staircase.

If I had to choose, I would also love to stay at the Mirror Cube. This lightweight aluminium structure would be the perfect hideaway as it almost disapears amongst the towering trees. It might not look too big, but the room has a double bed, a bathroom, a living room and a roof terrace. And keeping the safety of neighboring birds in mind, The Cube was built with an infrared film  —visible to birds only— to prevent them from colliding with the structure. Now, sit back and relax and imagine how it would feel to live in harmony with nature surrounded by this majestic forest. Breath deeply!
