Happy Friday, lovelies!
When it comes to summer time, I’m stuck on slow days and spending as much time outside as possible. I want to sit and savor and soak in every ounce of summer. I’m still slowly working on our outdoor areas (it takes so much time – and energy) and I’m finding the grace to just let myself work at my own pace so there is time for play and relaxing, too.
At any rate, my mind, and pinning pattern, seems to keep pointing to relaxing spaces, both, outdoors and in.
Although, we have no plans to build a play-fort right now, I keep wishing for a really cool one (probably more than my kids, even do). How cool is this little window top retreat (above), complete with a basket to pass up and down. I adore the idea of just being able to crawl out the window.
I’m taken with this This Midsummer night’s dream by Eye Swoon. There is something about this outdoor / backyard that very much reminds me of my home. My home is not modern like this one, but the deck wrapped around the house with the pool close by is very similar and the woods look almost identical. Besides that, I’ve always wanted to have a lush outdoor dinner party like this. Maybe this is the year to not wish, but to do.
Lastly, hammocks. Love them outside and indoors. This tiny indoor porch is big in style and has huge relaxing potential.
Do you have any big plans for the weekend? For Father’s Day? I hope it involves a space that invites you to sit back and soak in summer!
