If there’s one American lifestyle staple I think we South Africans could happily adopt it’s the “porch swing” – the perfect place to chat, read or just daydream. Our blogger found several beauties on Pinterest this week.

The TV series Revenge (season 3 starts on M-Net on 28 November) might be full of dark deeds but I just love that swing seat on the spacious veranda of Emily/Amanda’s childhood home at the seaside. I could put it to much better use than she does though – she’s so busy with her devious plotting she doesn’t have time to make the most of it.

Doesn’t this look ever so inviting! There’s something wrong with this picture, though – in the real world that dog would be on the seat in two shakes of a fluffy tail.

No tree, no worry

One of the handful of South African suppliers of swing seats has this evocatively named Daydreamer model with its own shade canopy. Go to Terrace Living for details.

I love everything about this stoep room – the ample swing couch, the many French doors to let in the fresh air, the soft blue and green summer hues and the wooden decking.

A fine spot for romance

A simple swing acquires a huge amount of class with the addition of a fanciful chandelier hung from the tree. A perfect place for a special moonlight moment.

A girl can dream

My ideal version of this outdoor luxury would be big enough for me to lie down fully stretched out. And of course it would come with a view of the beach and the sea. And perhaps someone to bring me long, cool drinks from time to time.
