Comfortable Luxury

To round out this guest room, the designer brought out the coral accent color for the chair and ottoman. A pharmacy lamp lights the chair so that guests have a quiet space to read. Double beds are centered on the left wall to maximize guest sleeping The custom designed and crafted drapery installation behind the beds conceal two off center windows that conflicted with the furniture placement. The two windows on the far wall provide ample natural light for the room.

This color was present when our client purchased the house. Try one of these Benjamin Moore colors: 1943 Morning Dew, 1507 April Showers or 975 Tapestry Beige.

This finished example in a different house addresses the problem. First, the gaps were filled with like-size artwork, then a chair was added below the awkward window to balance the composition.

Another wall was chosen for the focal point here, and the windows were covered with very simple shutters that don't attract attention. You could also use a blind or shade that is very close to the wall color. This will de-emphasize the awkward window.
