My dad grew up loving the 1960 Walt Disney film Swiss Family Robinson, in which a shipwrecked family had to build a large, surprisingly ornate tree house as their dwelling.
Now, our tree house was nothing like the one he grew up imagining, or the tourist replica you can currently climb at Disneyworld. Ours was as basic as it could be, but a British company called Blue Forest Luxury Tree Houses has now begun creating luxury tree houses that are nicer than most “ground” houses I see, and they aren’t just for kids!
The company was started by Andy and Simon Payne, two brothers who were born in Kenya and spent most of their childhood immersed in nature and surrounded by the great outdoors. They wanted to create houses that become one with nature, yet are fully functional. They believe people of all ages may enjoy living in tree houses.
They are now considered the world’s experts in luxury tree house consulting. They design their buildings around the environment in which they’re located. Clients have included governments, celebrities, The National Trust, and even royalty.
When you see inside these treetop dwellings, you’ll be wanting one, too. Thanks again to Simon at Blue Forest Luxury Tree Houses for giving LittleThings access to these photos.
