A small white birch tree was brought inside to live in a planter on this fully carpeted indoor terrace — a peaceful, pretty and very retro addition to a home that was decorated in the mid-1960s.
The textured low-pile wall-to-wall carpet in a goldenrod color covered all of the floor in this area, including fully wrapping the three floating steps leading to the upper portion of the split level, along with the sides of the raised area.
Up there on a landing, in the relaxing little elevated seating area that had been created, a yellow and white floral fabric had been perfectly tailored to fit the simple cot-style mattress resting on top of the white bamboo chaise-style sofa.
Extra comfort was provided by a clutch of colorful toss pillows. Nearby, two matching end tables provided space for flowers and decorative objects, and on the wall, a square abstract painting helped unify the space.
In the foreground of the terrace — likely part of a hallway or entryway — the birch’s simple planter was clad in wood, and made wide enough to have room on top for several flat cushions that provided yet more seating.
