A Decorating Idea


Would you ever put your bed in front of a window?

Our bedroom has been laid out a specific way since we moved into our house over two years ago and it just feels a little stale lately. It’s set up in the most logical way based on the layout of the room, but the other day while perusing Pinterest, I found a few photos showing beds set up in front of windows and had an a-ha moment. Why don’t I shake things up and rearrange the room?

We would need to get a new bed frame, but that honestly has been a long time coming. Brian and I bought our first bedroom furniture set the month after we got married. We felt like such adults making a big purchase like that! We still have the same bedroom set, and while it always makes me smile thinking back to the excitement we had when we purchased it, the dark wood and the matchy-ness of it really isn’t our style anymore.

Since we don’t have much storage in our house, I’m crushing on this platform bed with baskets underneath (shown in the top, right photo). Clean, pretty and functional. Just the way I like my house to be :)

    I have always put my bed in front of a window. I love it! I like have the sun cascade on my face in the morning! It also acts as a headboard if you don’t have one.

    Do it! As long as the window is on the second floor I do not see a problem. I think when a large pieces of furniture is placed in front of window (like a couch ) it blocks the flow of the house when looking in. Looks cluttered.

    Our bed is in front of our window too! I definitely was skeptical about it int he beginning, but absolutely love it.
