Need help with bay window
November 24, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We just finished painting our dining room (BM Wyeth Blue) and need help with our bay window. It looks bare without anything, but can't find the right "something" for the space. We adore having all the light through the windows. The space is 2.5' w x 8.0' l. We included a few other views of the room for reference. Thank you so much in advance!

I feel silk panels in a gray blue that frame your bay window will finish this room. The rod should be a warm traditional metal. I would suggest 36" panels (1.5 panels at 2.5X fullness)on each side that overlap the window about 6 - 8". The silk will add a monochromatic detail and not take away from the view.

Check out this bay window. I think having the panels on the outside preserve the views. I will leave the colors and fabric ideas to the pros. I love your paint colors.

I would leave the windows unadorned, have a custom cushion made in a beautiful fabric and just two pillows where the windows meet the center. Just like this pix.

I would place a beautiful vase of flowers in your perfect windows.

It does not look like a good height for sitting but the photo could be confusing me. If it is too high to sit on comfortably I think the pillows would look kind of strange. Do you like plants? If the window faces south or west you would have to get some very hearty ones, but if it faces east it could be wonderful for plants
