The Perfect Napping Spot

I understand it's cruel to talk about napping on a Monday morning, so please forgive me. A completely seductive window seat that I saw in a remodeled home for sale in the historic district of St. Michael's, Md., recently got me thinking about napping spots, and how every home ought to have one.

I tend not to be a napper myself unless I'm coming down with a bug, but perhaps I should cultivate the habit. My 20-year-old daughter has been a master napper since she was a baby, and the whole family has a better day if she gets a late-afternoon snooze. (Poking through the Post's story archives, I found this little gem about the benefits of napping.)

The moment I saw that house's lovely window seat outfitted with a plush pillow just the right size to accommodate a human in fetal position, I imagined her claiming it as her domain. And though I don't (yet) indulge in daytime dozing, I figure that just the sight of an attractive nap post probably lowers blood pressure a few points. Seriously, how many cats keel over from heart attacks?

The resin-wicker glider on my back porch is too short for napping, but a couple of Adirondack chairs in the yard are good candidates, even without a cushion. A hammock may be in order.

What's prime napping territory around your home?
