17 Ways to Make Your Tiny Apartment Feel Like a Tree House

New, 8 comments

There is a smug sense of superiority that comes along with transforming a 250-square-feet-of-gloom apartment into an arboreal hideaway. After all, it's no easy task. There are bright green prints to pick out, refurbished wood chairs to haggle over, and the beckoning calls of your dehydrated flora to answer. But, these 17 objects might make it a bit easier.

It's no secret that Curbed has had a lifelong love affair with tree houses (Read: 92 posts in total, but no one's counting), which means that we're perfectly poised to curate any evergreen aerie. And, in case you're wondering, we firmly don't believe that tree houses need an actual, well, tree. In fact, these products are for anyone who believes that the tree house is merely a state of mind.
