In a video titled “Daily Reminders,” Jada Pinkett Smith gave her followers some words to live by in the New Year. “Don’t waste time on nonsense … be kind to yourself and … SHINE!!!” she wrote in the caption of her January 5 video. “YOU are your greatest treasure and that’s … a promise.”

As much as her words are inspiring, her interior design is something to take inspiration from, too. Pinkett Smith filmed her video while sitting on her indoor swing, and that is also something worth adding to your New Year’s resolutions list.

If you’re interested in swinging into 2022 in style like Pinkett Smith, there are some fun swing options out there to check out. Of course, you can make your own swing using a piece of thick lumber and a couple lengths of rope from the hardware store if you’re crafty. But there are more than a few Etsy sellers who have perfected the art of making swings, and they’re all just as beautiful as Pinkett Smith’s.

This macrame swing from SNHANDICRAFTS, for example, would be a gorgeous addition to any boho-themed space. And these swings come with carabiners for easy installation.

Etsy seller Pemline sells a more simple style swing that is crafted to withstand the outdoors, but can also be installed inside, too. You get to pick the wood finish and rope length before buying and use whatever method you wish to install it.

When installing an indoor swing, you need to make sure you’re drilling heavy duty eye hooks into ceiling studs or beams to ensure it’s going to last. Drilling into drywall alone is going to result in an uncomfy fall and a busted ceiling. If you aren’t confident in installing a swing yourself, reach out to a local handyman to help you out.

Be kind, grow, shine, and swing away on your new favorite piece of home decor.
