Window Over Bed Inspiration Round Up

Today we’re sharing inspiration of bedrooms that feature a window over the bed! This can be a tough feature to design around, but this inspiration will have you ready to EMBRACE it!

When I first purchased my new home, one feature I struggled designing around was the window over the bed in the primary bedroom. I had designed many bedrooms with art over the bed or using the headboard as a feature, but I couldn’t do either with the window as the focal point. I began hunting for inspiration and these bedrooms stopped my scroll and inspired me to embrace the window in my design.


This first photo was the first one that really sparked my inspiration. I loved the trim work around the window making it feel like a feature in the room and almost an extension of the headboard. I ended up doing similar trim on my window and it made a world of a difference. This room is cozy perfection.

This next room designed by Marie Flanigan Interiors is a great example of why you should embrace all the windows you can. The light flooding in this bedroom from the floor-to-ceiling windows totally makes the room. The curtains all the way to the ceiling make the ceilings look even taller and draw your eyes up to the shiplap.

The room below is the same room by Marie Flanigan, but with different accents. I love that you can see the impact the windows make even with a fresh spin on bedding and art.

I loved this inspiration because the window isn’t centered. It gives so much interest in the space and still feels sophisticated. There are really no rules when it comes to designing with a window over a bed!

This room by Alexander Design has so much architectural interest from the beams, shiplap, and the three windows over the bed. One thing I noticed from the inspiration I loved is how wall sconces add another layer to the bed. Having this design feature in lieu of art or a tall headboard adds so much interest!
