Putting a Headboard against a Window

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.

  1. Good pictures of the bedrooms with the bed infront of the window. I don’t think that is a bad thing to do. I really like how the rooms are arranged. I like to see how all rooms make a place for flowers.
