It’s been a little warmer than normal the last couple days but I refuse to turn the air conditioning on this early in the year. So last night while I was sweating in my bed, I was dreaming of how nice it would be to have my very own sleeping porch during the summer months. A screened sleeping porch of course, so I don’t have to deal with mosquitoes and creepy crawlers! (Click on photo to be taken to original on Houzz.)
This cabin style porch is perfect for sleeping! The bed is suspended by chains so you can gently swing yourself to sleep, just like a baby being rocked. I love the wicker furniture and lamps on this porch, too.
Love this cottage style sleeping porch. It reminds me of the one at Mrs. Ashby’s house that I used to clean when I was 15 years old. Her home was the start of my love affair with old and charming houses.
Doesn’t this summer sleeping porch look like something at grandma’s house? What grandkid wouldn’t love hanging out at grandma’s and sleeping on this porch with their cousins?
I would love waking up to the morning sun in this romantic porch.
I love how the airy curtains drape from rods that run the length of the windows.
Here’s another rustic cabin type porch, perfect for sleeping during the cooler months of fall. A big stone fireplace can keep things toasty warm if the temperatures drop. And look … wine, bread, cheese, and fruit are ready and waiting!
This light and airy porch would be so much fun for a girl’s retreat with your best friends.
A sleeping room with a view! I love the bucolic grounds just outside the windows of this porch.
A daybed at the end of this screened porch is the perfect place for reading or napping.
Another suspended bed, the ropes gently swing you to sleep on the screened-in sleeping porch.
Plush mattresses provide sleeping comfort in this cheery screened porch.
One more suspended bed in a charming porch. I love to sleep in open air as often as possible.
I think the fresh air is good for the heart and soul!
