Why don’t we do this at home?

I’m a big fan of lazing around on a Saturday morning with a cup of tea and a good book. Because of that, I have always wished for an outdoor bed (in the shade, with a great view), like this one by GM Construction Inc. in Hawaii. We go on vacation and hope to find something just like this, but in all my years designing outdoor living spaces, I hardy ever get asked for one here. Why not? This is San Diego- don’t we want to pretend we’re on vacation all the time?

By the way, I love the soft green colors they used for the throw pillows. Those kinds of greens are so relaxing that I just want to take a deep breath every time I look at them. I learned recently that our brains find greens so relaxing because they are right smack in the middle of the spectrum of colors we can see. Pretty neat, huh?
