From time to time I visit a section of the Atlanta Journal & Constitution called “Private Quarters.” They highlight homes of all types and give mini tours. Recently this home was featured. You can see the full tour HERE. My favorite “room” shown in the tour was the porch. I know that comes as no surprise since I have a thing for porches.
This little piece of heaven especially caught my eye. Imagine sleeping away a warm southern night in this spot, lulled to sleep by the sounds of the crickets, cicadas and frogs. It would be a regular symphony of natures best musicians. Candlelight would be provided by lightning bugs. What a wonderful way to end a day.
This sleeping porch reminded me of some other porches with swings for sleeping that I’ve featured here on BNOTP.
Do you remember this porch from THIS Christmas Home Tour in 2010?
Or, how about this porch in the Southern Living Idea home when it was in Senoia Georgia in 2010. You can take the tour HERE.
By the way, this year’s Southern Living Idea House is going to be in Senoia again! They have chosen a wonderful old historic home to make over and it’s going to fabulous.
Here’s a little preview of the Before and the planned After. What a change, huh?
If you’re thinking about adding a swing big enough for sleeping on to your porch, Pinterest has some wonderful examples. The following pics can all be found pinned on the board I started at Pinterest, HERE. Once you click on my Pinterest board, just click on each swing if you wish to follow it back to the original source for more information.
Take away the small pillows and throw a real pillow and blanket on this swing and you’re in business for the night.
Another oasis perfect for napping…
Imagine going to sleep listening to the sound of ocean waves crashing on the beach! What a view! This porch even has “his” and “hers” swings.
I love how this sleeping swing is hung from ropes…so much prettier than chains. Gotta have a fan overhead for staying cool on those balmy nights and lazy Sunday afternoons.
Sweet dreams! See you tomorrow morning for Tablescape Thursday! TT will post between 9 AM and 10 AM on Thursday morning.
