If you must place the bed in front of a single window, it's best to hang drapes the entire width of the bed or better yet, across the entire wall. Description from interiordesigngreensboro.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images
I think we should use our bed and create a focal point in our room using this very styling setup. I am thinking of taking our patterned blue drapes since we really don't need them at the window and placing them behind our bed in this very fashion. We already have a round mirror to place above (should we want a mirror above our bed). We just NEED a headboard and new bedside stands and lamps.
This is a great example of DIY decorating. Painted furniture pieces. Canopy over the bed maade from ready made drapes and decorative curtain rods. The artwork behind the lamps creates a terrific effect. Nice job!
