This gorgeous image by talented Dutch photographer Jeltje … sorry should have been Paul Barbera of course … reminded me this morning of my idea to create a space for a swing too … although I won't be asking my husband to hang one inside, ours will be hanging outside, I like it very much how the owners of this home have done it here…

    oh… I love it! I’ve been meaning to hang a swing up in our living room for a year now… I think I’m inspired enough now to go out, buy one, and actually do it!

    That would be fantastic! One day I will have a place that could contain this, one day…

    I’ve had a swing in my house for about 20 years and it adds so much on so many levels. Calms my grandson down, makes everyone smile, gives me a new perspective when I’m creatively stuck. I also have a boat hanging from the ceiling which eventually, while swinging, everyone wants to touch with their toes.

    i love the idea of the swing.. would need open space to do it.. wouldn’t want to be knocking things down with every swing.. nevertheless good idea.

    We have a swing in our home, a wooden one like this but from IKEA. It is THE favorite spot for my sons and their playmates!

    I’m wandering if the swing needs something like brackets or it’s possible to secure it simply at the ceiling. I want it!

    It is not matter of taking other wise but it is definition of creativity… Nice post thanks for sharing with us..
