Sleeping under the stars is one of those things that sounds lovely and romantic, but doesn't quite live up to the hype. There's dirt! There are bugs! There's strange howling! But if you want to embrace the outdoors and still sleep bug-free, there's a way you can have the best of both worlds: Make your space indoor/outdoor (via a giant wall of windows). Open it up during the day to blur the lines between indoors and out, and close it at night for a little privacy and insect prevention. Here's some inspiration.
