This piece of Mexican art adds a touch of nature by combining colour, shell-shape and an amazing green space indoors. This sort of house reminds you that housing has no stereotypical boundaries. An indoor space to relax amongst ivy and rolling greens sounds like the perfect place to enjoy sharing a drink, listening to music or even curling up to a book.
