Summer is finally here and you're probably planning an exciting getaway with the family. Unfortunately, it's not about visiting the beach for everyone—some are going to be stuck in the city and rushing to work.

Don't worry, if you don't have the luxury of going on vacation yet, you can still build a special spot where you can relax in hammocks. They are versatile pieces that can be easily set up in a variety of places and ways with minimal effort. 

What are you waiting for? It's time to get creative beginning with these three ideas.

Add a few pillows 

If you feel like bringing the comfort of your bed outdoors, find a nice tree where you can put up your hammock and load it up with a bunch of fluffy pillows. You can also try using pillowcases in contrasting colors and textures to keep it from looking lifeless. 

RL Tip: Consider adding a few plushies to the mix for an extra adorable touch.

Consider getting a chair hammock 

If your house has a balcony, think about hanging a chair hammock from the pillars to create a cozy new spot. This will allow you get some well-deserved Me Time, catch up on your reading or serve as a place where you can bask in the morning sun.

Keep it classic with monochrome pieces 

Outdoor spaces can be elegant, too! Feel free to use a black and white striped hammock to contrast plain walls. You can also add a few accessories in neutral tones to prevent it from falling flat. 

RL Tip: If you feel like shaking things up with color, pick rich jewel tones like moss green or maroon to maintain the same sophisticated feel.
