Playful Decorating Ideas
Five foolproof ways to give your home a touch of childlike whimsy—without sacrificing your adult aesthetic.
Total time: 30 minutes.
All you need: An Ekorre swing kit, $15; and Ekorre mounting hooks, $2 for two: ikea.com for stores.
How to put it together:
- Pick an area of the room with a few feet of space to swing in both directions.
- Locate a rafter or a sturdy support in the ceiling. (Use an electronic stud finder, if needed.) This will help the swing hold more weight. Mount the hooks according to the directions.
No room for a swing? Try a hammock seat (from $83, kidsdreamgym.com), which gives off the same easy-breezy vibe.
