    Thanks for looking and Happy New Year. That is a solid stain sanded down to give it a distressed look. It isn't a stock color, it was a custom color mixed through our local paint supplier Hirshfield's. The directions we gave them was to match a stain as closely as possible to the red in our company logo! Good luck and thanks again.

    It looks like this is a screened porch. How are you able to keep the bugs coming in from the cracks between the planks by using the plank type of wood flooring? Did you put anything on the underside of the flooring? Thanks!

    I am not sure where this blanket was purchased, but similar blankets can be purchased at Pendleton.

Use your balcony as a sleeping porch. “Outdoor sleeping has come to stay, so let us recognize the fact and build our houses accordingly.” This declaration appeared in the magazine Decorative Homes of Moderate Costs in 1921, responding to the widespread fad of sleeping on screened porches. Sleeping al fresco was considered, in the time of diseases like tuberculosis, to be a reasonable health measure. As such, for many years, sleeping porches were an integral part of home designs.Depending on your apartment and security concerns, you may have a little exterior screened-in space that can be used like a sleeping porch. You could have a little daybed with light linens for nights when it’s comfortable enough to sleep in open air.
