Window Treatment - Does the window treatment curtain cover 3 windows? Or are the curtains on the side for aesthetics only?

There are two center windows and single windows on either side. All windows are flanked with drapery panels, which are operable on rings. Cheers!

Daybed was a budget friendly option from RH. Upholstered in Belgian Linen. :)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

“We began the project with just a few structural changes,” Tharp says. They didn’t want to take away from the gracious original interior architecture, but they did open up the family room to the kitchen by enlarging the space between the two. (This photo was taken from that area.) The designer removed a wood stove that had seen better days and replaced it with a fireplace surrounded by bookshelves and cabinets. “We kept a simple Shaker surround around the fireplace, as the living and dining rooms have more formal marble mantels,” she says.“The first floor has wonderfully high ceilings and really tall, somewhat narrow pairs of windows. They make the ceilings feel even higher than 10 feet,” Tharp says. She cozied up the bay window with long curtains on three sides that accentuate the height, and she installed a comfortable custom daybed rather than a window seat. “They didn’t want a sectional sofa in here as that would not have been classic,” Tharp says. Instead, the daybed, two comfortable wingback chairs with an ottoman and the library chair compose the seating arrangement. The small TV is hidden in the new cabinetry. The library chair in the foreground is easy to move and turn toward the screen for movie night. Wall color: Skimming Stone by Farrow & Ball; still life paintings: Marshall Henrichs, Powers Gallery; chair: Lee Industries

Beige has taken a beating lately, and it, too, was on the list of “bad” colors. Like white, beige can look fantastic when care is taken to vary the materials and textures. I also think using a mix of colors in the beige family, from the lightest of warm whites all the way to dark tans and browns, challenges the notion of being bland with beige. Both these examples embrace beige in a way that’s interesting and appealing. See more on bringing beige walls to life

Similarly, a beige-and-taupe scheme in this Boston living room signals that sunny afternoons are meant to be spent quietly reading on the Belgian linen-covered daybed. Daybed: Restoration HardwareSee more of this home
