The Sleeping Porch
July 20, 2011
We asked three Connecticut designers to dream up a sleeping porch.
Inspired by her travels to more than fifty countries, Pamela Jimenez infuses her projects with a worldly flair and a passion for fine materials. According to the globetrotting designer, a beautiful sleeping porch “brings a rare note of accord and calm to a busy household.” Pamela Jimenez Design, Riverside, (203) 570-1444, www.pamelajimenezdesign.com
DONNA SEXTON and VICKI TAYLOR-BLOCH
Donna Sexton and Vicki Taylor-Bloch joined forces in 2004 to bring their fashion background to the interior design industry. “We hope our picks for a sleeping porch will inspire you to carve out a special space to relax and enjoy a warm evening breeze,” the designers say.
