my everyday likes and findings


This awesome arboreal dwelling is the Living the High Life Tree House created by Blue Forest, a British tree house design and construction firm. It’s a luxury family-sized complex featuring two separate tree houses, one for kids and one for their parents. The elevated dwellings are connected by a network of rope bridges which also lead to an adventure play area and an assault course, the latter of which is also accessible via an 80-yard zip line.

It may look rustic, but this is a top-of-the-line tree house. The kids’ house features three medieval towers, and inside one of them a concealed hatch in the upper floor leads to a secret game room containing a plasma TV and video game console. Meanwhile the grown-ups’ treehouse features a conical thatched roof and interior walls made of hand-split oak shingles and cedar tongue-and-groove boards. Inside there’s a kitchen (complete with plenty of wine storage), bathroom, and a large open living area for treetop entertaining. The complex also features accommodations for guests of the family.

Head over to the Blue Forest website to check out more of their amazing custom-built tree houses.

The Art of Matthew Grabelsky

Facebook | Saatchi Art

A native New Yorker, I grew up surrounded by artists. In college I studied astrophysics, which taught me how to observe the world, and art, which allowed me to express my relationship to it. After graduating from Rice University in 2002 with both a BA in Art and Art History and a BS in Astrophysics I moved to Florence, Italy where I spent four years studying the techniques of classical drawing and painting.

Since completion of my studies in 2006 I have focused on creating meticulously rendered oil paintings and carefully modeled wire mesh sculptures that juxtapose the “real” world with that of the subconscious. My work blurs the line between what we see around us in contemporary society with that of the imagination and dreams, bringing attention to the numerous and yet often unnoticed absurdities of daily life.
