A grown-up fort


One of my very favourite things to do growing up was building forts - whether it was outdoors in the avocado trees in our garden, or inside with bedsheets for some reason I never grew tired of this game. I loved this idea from designer Justina Blakeney on Design*Sponge for a Valentine's fort. The perfect little getaway for two for when you can't actually get away. Cozy up with a favourite book, some tea and your favourite cuddling partner and you've got the perfect weekend staycation...

That looks extremely cozy and inviting - and so romantic! What a great idea. I loved making creative forts like this when I was younger ... I suppose I still do. :)

I love little tent forts, whether they be indoor or outdoor, because they instantly take me back to being a kid and playing with my best girlfriends!

Cheers!

I'm sure everyone has been pinning this photo but did you see that it was also added to this fun list of Valentine's Day Delights? I am loving the idea and think it would be such an amazing date idea :)
