Oh, if I had a swing

The swing pictured above is my idea of heaven. I’m certainly not a hammock person — way too much anxiety trying to balance on one of those things. A little too stressful for my personality.

But since I was a child, I’ve loved swings — as evidenced in the many baby photos I’ve been looking at with my parents this weekend. There are at least six or seven photos of me in my baby swing, at a park, or playing in my backyard swingset.

I’ve always dreamed of a relaxing front porch swing, and Prairie Hive has taught me to stop dreaming and start planning.  So I’ve been busy looking for the perfect swing.

This swing from Apartment Therapy is perfect for the urban dweller, it looks so rustic but modern at the same time. I’ll bet those homeowners have fun!

I’ve been spying a lot of these cute skateboard swings online. How fun for kids! This one might be going in the tree in my front yard.

And at last, the quintessential front porch swing. White paint gives it a modern, fresh look. And what’s a swing without a burst of color with these happy pillows? I think this might be happening soon.

What are your dream home features?
