The festive season in Australia can sometimes become overwhelming. School holidays, Christmas and New Year’s all fall during the same period of often intense heat. It’s no wonder we all dream of a little escape, a few days of relaxing and recouping.
Although we’d all like to get away from the city or town during summer, we can often find it challenging given other commitments.
If you're unable to get away on a summer escape this season, don't worry - we've come up with the perfect summer escape solution! Even better, you don’t even have to pack a suitcase or leave your front door! At House Of Home we’re all about Summer relaxation, and we have created some unique ways to bring resort styling into your home this year.
What do you need most from a resort holiday? Restorative rest! What better way to do that than to have your very own hammock oasis for you to lounge in and take an afternoon nap.
An outdoor hammock hung on a balcony, on an outdoor patio or porch lets your take in the peaceful serenity of nature, whilst gently rocking you into an afternoon doze. A hammock is the perfect example of resort style relaxation. You can read your favourite books, magazines or lazily browse the web. A hammock chair provides a stylish alternative to a traditional hammock and, is ideal for those who may find it difficult to get in and out of the traditional style.
We loved Heavily Hammocks supportive and stylish Macramé Hammock Chair, which is perfect for creating that resort getaway feeling at home. As such, we created two stylish colour scores so you can shop the look easily!
Look One, Coral Style
Our first look is blushingly flirty and fun, warm and welcoming and iis the perfect summer palette for those who enjoy the summer heat. The Zohi Interiors crocheted circular rug mimics the hammock design and perfectly defines the relaxing space.
The gorgeously vibrant Aura Double Dip throw from Coco & Crème is ideal for helping transition your sunny afternoon reading into an evening affair. We also fell in love with the geometric metal pattern of the Wilson Gold Lantern. This lantern perfectly sets the mood for winding down and taking in a summer sunset.
