Beds in Front of Windows {Yes You Can!}

{The Hunted Interior}
Let's debunk the design myth that beds should never go in front of windows.

Yes! You can pull it off! I did it, and you can too!

I mentioned at the end of Monday's post that I would share some examples and I have some great ones to show you today, but let's talk about the "why" first. Furniture placement is so important to the flow, function, and look of a room, and sometimes doing something that might seem a little unconventional ends up working best.

Typically, beds are positioned against walls, right? Sure, but what if your bedroom is small (hello city living!), every wall has windows (not a bad problem!), or if it just feels right? Then it might be time to break that rule and push that bed up against the windows. To make it feel less awkward and purposeful, frame the bed with curtains or other window treatments, choose a headboard (or don't) that you love, flank the bed with pretty side tables, and hang mirrors if you can. Don't forget to hang those curtains high and wide, friends! When done well, all of a sudden, that bed under the windows becomes the beautiful focal point and you've got yourself a winner of a bedroom.

Let's take a look at some of the pretty examples I grabbed from around the web:
