Summer is at its height, and today, we’re celebrating the porch swing’s easygoing counterpart: the hammock. From portability to comfort, these carefree contraptions are perfect for stylishly lounging as you make the most of the season’s warm and sunny weather. Take a look at some of our favorite setups that’ll have you ready to install a hammock in your own backyard!
Head outside where a pillow-plumped hammock awaits, inviting you to spend the afternoon lost in the pages of your favorite novel.
Fresh & Fragrant
For a setup that’s as vibrant as it is cozy, add colorful throw pillows and a soft quilt. Arrange a bouquet of freshly picked blooms on a garden bench nearby.
Keep It Simple
Inhale the salty sea air as you feel the sand between your toes in this beachfront escape. With the sound of the waves crashing against the shore, you don’t need much more to create the perfect hideaway.
The cerulean blue of this hammock mirrors the calm waters of this coastal locale, while a pile of fluffy pillows ensures ultimate comfort for an afternoon spent swinging in the sun.
Frills & Fancies
From potted plants to a porcelain tea set, this elegant setting pulls out all the stops. A stack of leather-bound books provides endless entertainment while blending in with the stylish scene.
Sit back and unwind from the day’s demands as you enjoy a breathtaking sunset with a glass of wine and a bowl of summer berries. Keep a light throw on hand to stay warm as the evening progresses.
