One thing you will notice as you start your search for the
perfect hammock is all the colors and patterns from which
you can choose. Every color of the rainbow and then some,
stripes, floral designs, just about anything you want, you
will find. If you do not see a hammock with the colors you
prefer, talk to the hammock company and more than likely,
they will work with you one-on-one to design a hammock
specific to your needs.
In fact, most hammock companies make hammocks with décor and
the outdoors in mind. As they start making each hammock, they
are designed specifically to match household colors and to
blend beautifully with the color of nature. The most widely
chosen colors are tans, beige, and off-whites or earth tones,
which go with anything. Many of the hammocks that are imported
from Mexico, Central America, and other countries, use bright,
vivid colors that represent their love of life and celebration
of their own native tradition.
One of the nice things about the white and off-white colors is
that they can enhance any setting. If you plan to use the
hammock indoors, paint or wallpaper will match. If your hammock
will be used outdoors, the greens from the grass, blues from the
sky, and various colors of plants and flowers will all pull
together beautifully. Even though these colors tend to show more
dirt, if taken care of properly, they will still look fresh and
new for a long time.
For the hammocks that have tans, beige, or more earth tones, they
too look wonderful outside. These natural colors are nice to use
in your yard, patio or deck, and will provide a great finished look.
With the hammock contrasting to bark, grass, the trees, and even
the ground, they look wonderful. Additionally, the earth tones
are great for indoors, especially in a contemporary, traditional,
or art deco scheme.
The hammocks that are designed with bright colors such as yellows,
oranges, reds, and blues, end up with a creative, festive look.
If you have muted colors in your backyard, a nice bright hammock
would add a pop of color. Even indoors, for a colorless room, or
one that is modern in décor, the bright colors bring the room to
Regardless of the color chosen, keep in mind that you can mix and
match colors to create shapes or designs. Another great option
when choosing a solid colored hammock is to enhance it with several
throw pillows. For example, a beige hammock outdoors would look
great with various shades of green and a touch of yellow or blue.
A red hammock indoors could be completed with various pillows of
different designs and shapes made from various shades of red with
splashes of other colors. You can get as creative as you like.
You will love your new hammock no matter what the color.
