In trying to spruce up our backyard and add some life to it, I have looked at hundreds of pictures of gardens, patios and landscaping in trying to get some idea of what I like. In doing so, I have become slightly obsessed with hammocks.
My in-laws bought us an over-sized hammock for our first anniversary a few years back and it’s my husband and mine favorite place to relax on a nice evening outside. It has always sat by itself on our concrete patio and now I have made it my own personal project to create a quiet, private haven for our hammock in the yard. I love the romantic, whimsy feel of a hammock, a place of retreat to read a book or take an afternoon nap.
Here are a few of my favorite inspirations – I love the comfy pillows and blankets but I just wish Ohio wasn’t so rainy all the time.
