Although we love the warmth of the sun, sometimes it is too much and we start looking for a shady area.
To enjoy a full day at the beach or to entertain friends a hot afternoon, you could built your own Bohemian beach tent, like this gorgeous one I saw on Apartment Therapy.

If you prefer to buy one, check out the nice Sombrilla by Hollie & Harrie. I do not know why the nicest patterns are exclusive models for Australia. It comes with everything including aluminum poles and a shoulder bag. I like the cheerful Love’n The Sun Orange.

My last suggestion is to make your own cloth canopy. The hardest thing would be how to hang it; that depends of your space. Supplies that you may need are a grommet kit to punch sturdy holes into your fabric, tent poles or bamboo sticks, stout cord, and sturdy pegs. Make sure that you invite 3 friends to help you with the canopy installation. Head to Martha Stewart for more details.
