If you have some decorating plans for your home this year, then you should consider including an outdoor-space makeover. Summer will be warmer than usual this year – perfect for lounging around the backyard or the patio, enjoying new outdoor furniture.
And outdoor furniture doesn’t get much better than a comfy swing seat, right? Extend the depth of your seat and you have yourself a relaxing daybed!
The mere sight of a daybed – part sofa, part mattress – is enough to conjure reveries of lazy weekend lounging. A perfect perch for reading, it’s also comfortable enough for a relaxing nap!
Just imagine enjoying the breeze while it sways you gently to sleep! A swing seat is also ideal for simply lounging around while spending time with family and friends, or just reading a good book.
Think you could add one in your backyard? 🙂
