Sleep Outside: 10 Cool Porches for Naptime

Design Sponge

With temperatures scorching during the summer it’s hard to get a good nights sleep.  I have often thought of dragging the bed onto the deck on hot nights in summers past, and these pictures I’ve come across lately are sort of sealing the deal.  Check out 10 beautiful deck sleeping ideas below:

    If you don't have a porch, than a bed in the middle of a windowed room makes an excellent substitute.
