It’s no secret, I’m the ultimate sun worshiper. And I’m a self-confessed nature girl (plus my own kind of country girl too). And as an adopted SoCal gal, I’ve developed a borderline obsessive love for all things indoor/outdoor, both from an architectural and lifestyle standpoint. Though I currently live in a modernist glass and concrete dwelling, its seemingly-endless windows feed my insatiable thirst for life-giving natural light and I’ve been steadily transforming my own private landscape into a green jungle of sort (my deck is dangerously morphing into the playground of a mad experimental botanist). That said, I’d never before experienced a totally open-air lifestyle (complete with private outdoor garden bathroom) and I have to say, I was blown away. Combine this brilliant architectural concept with beautiful earthy and sustainable wood decor (I adore this statement Thai tree branch canopy bed, reminiscent of my luxe glamping tent in Ubud) and you’ve got the making of a fabulously unique eco-chic hideaway.
