A nice, different take on the cottage ideas - the windows still have a by-the-sea feeling. The wood, while, painted, is still prevalent, and the wood floors tie in to the browns in the comforter. Also, the trees inside and out add to that feeling, as well as the arch in the ceiling.
Use windows, centering furniture in front of them. Usually we strive to have the bed on another wall but in a small room, options can be limited, and it's often better to create a strong point with a bed than to awkwardly push it to one side. A bank of bay windows creates a natural nook for this bed, and the pretty window treatments give the illusion of a canopy.
I love this room. The classy furnishings are surrounded by elegant touches, and beautiful symmetry; making it a relaxing haven.
But there are other drapery styles that create perfect backdrops for beds while being function coverings for windows too. This layer of bamboo shades and high hung drapes (please never hang your drapes low- promise me) works wonderful and the fact that it goes from wall to wall makes it look luxurious and purposeful.
Real-Life Bedrooms Super Chic: Framed by two long mirrors, unique lamps, and contemporary side tables, this modern bedroom gains a formal air from its disciplined symmetry. Why We Love It: The vast window is dressed in reversible blinds that can close from the top down or the bottom up. This allows light into the room while maintaining privacy.
This room is gorgeous sans furniture! Add the big comfy bed? Priceless! the large windows help to brighten the space-but I'm worried about the nighttime. Would it be too dark? I'd love to see two little chairs and a cute end table rather than the couch-but none-the-less this room is beautiful.
