We're currently ruminating on small spaces of all configurations. But while small spaces often call to mind tiny urban apartments and compact cabins, how could we forget about another classic type of small space—the tree house? We took to Instagram for a dose of woodsy inspiration.
Wooden spherical treehouse

@treehousesapp: "A spherical treehouse, named Eryn @ Free Spirit Spheres. These spheres were designed to harmonize with nature and incorporate elements of biomimicry into their design. Notice the nut like shape, spider’s web-like suspension and double helix stairway."

Tents and tree houses on a creek in Slovenia

@hercegmedo: "In the beautiful country of Slovenia, there is a place like paradise, called Garden Village Bled, next to the magical lake of Bled. In this heavenly place, where a river runs through the dining hall, people sleep in fairylike treehouses or pier tents above the river, bath in the swimming pond, or the streaming river and play like they are the children they once used to be."
