When Debra decided to make over her backyard, one thing was certain…it had to be a place full of beauty and imagination for her three-year-old granddaughter, Brianna. Inspired by the overgrown, woodsy look the yard had when they first bought their home, Debra knew that with a little clearing, it would be a perfect retreat.
The family hired a crew to clear some bushes and trees and create winding paths that would lead to the playhouse, fire pit area complete with decorative mantle, dining area, and butterfly garden.
As for the playhouse, it was designed with a whimsical, curved door and window for that storybook look and was actually built adult-size so that the entire family could enjoy it for many years to come.
What an absolutely perfect space that now has me daydreaming of cozy little backyard cottages.

This is so perfect and makes me want to leave the city so I can have this back yard for my girls!

Forget the kids… I just want this for me. 🙂

I am beyond jealous of this. I don’t have a house yet, but I have big dreams of what I want for a backyard. This house is amazing! It makes me think of the Renaissance festival. Hopefully I can do this for my own children one day… or something similar.

Isn’t it adorable? Heck, I want my actual house to look like this.

My grandbaby would love this! I want to make it my size! Thanks for sharing

This is way too adorable! I love the space so much. Currently wondering if my next house should have a bigger backyard for this…

How adorable! I kind of want this for myself… do I have to invite kids?
Seriously, though, I love how every little detail is thought out. The color scheme is great, and I love the fireplace outside for parents to hang while the kids have fun playing house!

This is adorable! My girls are very much into American Girl Wellie Wisher books and this reminds me of the play house in the book, my girls would love this! Thank you for sharing such a cute idea!

Everything looks so nice! We have a little house for our daughters too but want to change some decorations and you have great ideas. Thanks for sharing!

This is amazing. My daughters are so jealous. We don’t have a big enough backyard for this. However, we are hoping to add a treehouse for them – one day.
