YOU CAN’T PUT A BED IN FRONT OF A WINDOW
How many times have we been told you cannot put a bed in front of a window? It’s one of those old school rules that are made to be broken. Sometime you have no choice, especially in tight city living, than to place a bed in front of a window- but sometimes even in large spaces it’s just the ideal spot and as you can see from the pictures below- it can be a dramatic and fabulous!
First rule: Make the draperies wider that than the window - to make a dramatic backdrop behind the bed - and tie the area together.
Second rule: Bedside tables should be only 2" taller or lower than the top of your mattress. You need to be able to reach over and turn out the light comfortably.
Sometimes that rule is broken if you have a really cool side table.
What if you had a terrible view - you only need to diffuse the light in the morning. A screen can do the trick.
Side tables do not have to match - but they should be about the same height. Then balance the look with a pair of lamps.
