This mirrored home only looks like it's floating in a forest. The first floor of the two story house is wrapped in paneling that reflects the surrounding woods. Designed by Polish architect studio Reform, the Izabelin House has a chameleon-esque quality that would make it ideal for reclusive folk looking to get away from the city.

The paneling of the ground floor is what gives the upstairs the appearance it's floating. The mirrored home is located outside of Warsaw, Poland. Intended to strike a balance between "an appreciation for getting back to nature with the desire for a comfortable dwelling," the camouflaged residence barely stands out among the green around it.

Even though the mirrors would be difficult to clean, it might be worth leaving dirty so people don't walk straight into the walls.
