All About the Porch

The official kick-off of summer has me thinking about porches. Growing up in the South, just about every house had a big ol' porch for enjoying evening breezes. I have many fond memories of sitting on a porch swing, usually with a glass of sweet tea in hand. There's something about sitting on a front porch that invites neighborly conversation and a general air of leisurely-ness; it's the one thing I always reference when I talk about someday leaving the Big Apple. "What I really want is a front porch!"

Of course, screened-in porches have their advantages too - great for a bug-free dinnertime, watching an afternoon thunderstorm, or sleeping... Below, check out these great sleeping porches I found here while browsing through Apartment Therapy.

  1. I love these. I really like the one with 3 twin beds and chairs. I think it's ready for the Montauk girls.
