Therapeutic voyeurism, right this way

Grab a mug of cocoa and get ready to satisfy your “bungalust.”
Let’s start with something traditional
A garden hideaway with a shabby-chic spirit, from the land where it all began (that’s California, y’all).
But then let’s head East
When you’ve got a Hawaiian beach shack
Part of the fun is letting it get a little bit scruffy.
But we’re not against that swanky “bungaluxe” life, either
Unclear if this place has a door.
Bungalows blur the lines between the indoors and outdoors
Whether you’re living it up in a floating hut in the Maldives…
Or taking a reading break on this placid lake
It’s in Kiev, in case you were wondering.
Bring your A-Game
To this A-frame.
And don’t fear the split level
This Swedish retreat utilizes vertical space with an open, barn-style second story.
Happiness is a bright, airy beach cottage in Nantucket
That’s also somehow sand-free.
A Minnesotan family of four inhabits this 207-square-foot house on wheels
One question: Where does Mom escape to scream get a moment’s privacy?
Speaking of privacy
This place is all about sweet, sweet solitude.
We do love a pool party
For a party of one.
Not to mention foor-to-ceiling windows
On the façade of this L.A. dwelling.
And we never oppose a super-contemporary addition
This Belgian farmhouse bends the rules--and we like it.
Oh hi, dreamy little hobbit house
Tucked away in a Mediterranean inlet.
And hello, floating haven
That sunset, tho.
One final word
