If I had these windows, I would be doing everything in my power to keep them unobstructed. Unfortunately, sometimes there’s only one good direction to fit a bed, and if it’s against a window—what then?
I’m making note of this idea from the Pottery Barn summer 2011 catalog. I love how the wood blinds draw your eyes up to the ceiling. I love how it doesn’t feel like you’re missing out on a view. I love the symmetry.
Here’s another one, also counterintuitive. But I think the reason this works is because the headboard is just slightly smaller than the window frame (same goes for the previous image). By seeing a bit of the frame on either side of the headboard, it doesn’t feel like the bed is overpowering the window—and thus, not overpowering the room.
