hammock1

A hammock is the perfect place to spend a lazy summer day. I have selected 10 of the best hammock images that I could find to get you in summer mood. And if the weather isn’t that great, you can always try to find a place to hang a hammock indoors (images two & five)! My favorite hammock is a beige one with scalloped edging (like this one here). You can find an abundance of hammocks in various colors and designs in Etsy shop Hamanica.

This stunning modern rustic home is located on Ibiza, an island belonging to the Balearic Islands of Spain. The (very lucky!) owners have been visiting the beautiful island for years spending their holidays here. When they got the change to buy a run down old farmhouse they jumped at the opportunity without hesitation. Their aim was to create a home with had an authentic and pure vibe and in my opinion they very well succeeded in accomplishing their goal. Such a beautiful place, on a beautiful island!

AN ECLECTIC MODERN HOME IN DENMARK

Karen May’s beautiful home is filled with vintage furniture, flea market finds and objects found outside on the sidewalk. In fact almost anything you see is recycled. Karen May, who shares her home with her husband Ash and their four children, can not believe the beautiful and useful things people throw away. The result is a unique and eclectic home. I love the boucherouite rugs that are used a wall hangings. If you are after a boucherouite rug, I have two beautiful vintage rugs for sale from my personal collection. I once bought three rugs as I could not choose but I am using only one. Contact me if you are interested and I can send you photos and more details.

A BEACH COTTAGE IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

These images of a beautiful beach home scream summer to me. This lovely cottage on the beaches of Sydney belongs to stylist/photographer Sarah, who lives here together with her husband and their three kids. Their story is inspiring. They moved from London to Australia in 2005 and are now living the ‘Australian dream’. Having been to Australian a few times myself I know the lifestyle and I sometimes dream about a life in this beautiful country too. Perhaps one day… For now I just enjoy these images of Sarah’s beautiful cottage.
