It's a room we don't see often here in NYC, for obvious reasons, but they're found throughout the south, like the traditional sleeping room pictured up top. Then, there are more modern versions, like the one at the Gamble House after the jump...

This is the sleeping porch at the Gamble House by early 20th-century architects Greene and Greene, as seen from the exterior. What an idyllic space. We think sleeping porches, with the cool night breeze blowing through, should be used more often.
