IN LOVE WITH: Hammocks


"...Sunlit memories,
Where the hammock swung...
Only last July when the world was young." - Johnny Mercer

 

It all began with the latest issue of Elle Décor magazine and an objective. Finally relaxing after a long week, I flipped through the pages and came across an image of the most beautiful hammocks I had ever seen. Handwoven in Nicaragua, their charm was unmatched. Without much thought, I sourced them and jumped online to purchase one of my very own. Perhaps I should mention that as a renter of an apartment, I had no trees on which to tether my new bunk. So, the next logical option {of course} was to figure out how to hang it inside…genius! Surely my idea was so original, cool and bohemian in spirit that I was on target to set a new trend. Again online, I researched how to hang a hammock indoors. Bombarded with images from those who already had this idea and managed to bring it to fruition, I was in a familiar state: with the knowledge that there are times when I think I have come up with an imaginative concept only to be reminded that I am not the only one; and that the purpose of this blog is to continually be inspired by artistic and gifted minds. 

 

Think youthful, free-spirited, lazy days of summer...indoors.
