Before we left town I was helping a friend with furniture layout ideas for a new house they are moving into. Mainly the living and bedrooms. In her bedroom she was hoping to put the bed in front of the window, but was worried that it would look weird or that there was some rule against it. I told her no fear! Lots of people put their bed in front of a window and have it look good- check out this post I did a while back on placing a bed in front of a window.
Our main task of the day was figuring out the living room layout. It ended up being that putting their long sofa in front of the window was the best seating arrangement for flow and conversation. Again my friend was about worried how it would look. So once again I took to the internet to show her that you can do it and have it look great!
Window treatments framing the sofa make for a great backdrop.

So next time your thinking you can only put you sofa or bed on a windowless wall think again!
