Few things evoke the carefree feelings of childhood like a swing.
Few things evoke the carefree feelings of childhood like a swing. There’s something about kicking up your feet and defying gravity that brings out your inner child. Even gently rocking back and forth on a swing can be so relaxing. There are some great ways to incorporate a swing into your home, inside or out.
Not all swings are playthings. I love the idea of a big swing as a piece of outdoor furniture. With comfortable, weather proof cushions, an outdoor swing is a great alternative to a traditional chaise or your typical porch swing.
Indoor swings can take so many forms. You really can take this idea and adapt to almost any interior, modern or rustic. With a cozy throw or a custom pillow, a swing becomes the perfect spot to relax.
What kind of swing would you love to have in your home?

For a truly customized look, you simply can’t go wrong with tile.
For a truly customized look, you simply can’t go wrong with tile. When tiling, you can really splurge on something special. Whether you go with stone, glass, ceramic, cement, or porcelain, tile allows for so much creativity. The choices today for stunning tiles are nearly endless, but I really love the idea of using bold, graphic tiles for an unforgettable look.
I like tiles with big geometric patterns. Great tiles aren’t just for the floor. Tile makes a fantastic backdrop in nearly any room — it doesn’t have to remain in the bathroom. Bold tiles can be used to create accents customized with a range of different colors. The possibilities are endless! A custom tile design can really evoke someone’s personality — playful, colorful, and vibrant.
Some of my favorite patterns have a Marrakech or Turkish kind of feeling to them. Many have Moorish-inspired patterns that evoke a history even when updated with colors for today.
