Megan Pflug’s Woodhouse Lodge might be every designer’s dream. But with her keen take on design striking the perfect balance between country and contemporary chic, it’s every guest’s dream as well. Though the country cabin is usually associated with skiing and snow, there’s more than a few benefits to visiting while the weather is warm. A hammock stretched between two strong trees is the perfect place to take a break from the world and spend a few hours watching it all pass by.
Take advantage of vertical space in your outdoor living room by suspending hammock chairs from rafters and joists. These add an element of fun to the area and are just as fit for kids as they are adults.
Is there anything better than a hammock on a summer day? Here is a hammock idea that doesn’t require perfectly spaced trees. I love this swing chair from Rachel Denbow and wanted to try my own adding a mudcloth design.
This backyard has plenty of room to lounge: A hammock strung between trees contains pillows to provide added comfort, while a suspended daybed beckons in the background, as seen on The Outdoor Room With Jamie Durie on HGTV.
