Why Don’t You…?

…decorate the exterior of your house – all year long?

A creative landscaping job on the side of a home can make a world of difference, yes? Imagine walking by this house on a daily stroll; peering up to be welcomed by a cheerful sign that all we need in this world is love, love, love.

With a cloud-shaped exterior and an even more unexpected interior complete with wood paneling and a bright red kitchen, the Cloud House comes fully equipped with enough inspiration to last a lifetime. (Bonus? A breathtaking pool!)
