……………….. DESIGN AND INSPIRATION

Glamping…roughing it in style!

We are all anxious to get outside and enjoy outdoor activities…the Winter has been tough and punishing…it makes the brain think of what One can do outdoors…

This week I was at a seminar by Robin Siegerman, who presented a very thorough and enjoyable talk about outdoor design. She mentioned the word Glamping. To be quite honest, I had not heard of this till Robin mentioned it and I LOVE it!!!. I was instantly inspired to share this concept.

Below are pictures I found on the website: 50campires.com..

Wow..This place is ‘finished’ without compromise.

I like this..off the ground to discourage unwanted critters as guests.

Imagine the fresh area and stunning view at dusk and dawn..all you need is a horse to ride around during the day to explore the area.
