white hammock

Hammocks have long been an obsession of mine. Something about the way they cocoon you in and their gentle swinging motion makes them so soothing. Plus if you have the style that curls up at the edges, it’s almost a hiding spot for getting lost with a good book. (Sticking point: I can’t see how cups of tea and hammocks can coexist without spills and scalds. Anyone have a solution?)

The thing is, I’ve never lived in a place that’s been big enough for one. But we’re about to move house, so I’m allowing myself to dream of finding a nook in our new place where a hammock could go. Somewhere for reading, daydreaming and maybe snuggling with a baby or two. And how perfect are the ones pictured here, which are all indoors? You wouldn’t even have to contend with the mosquitoes that seem to go along with many garden-based hammocks.

I’m thinking sturdy wall fastenings are a non-negotiable.
