Spring Furniture Switch in the Bedroom

We have a huge window in the center of our bedroom. When we first moved in I placed our bed up against it. It does make the most of our space and looks very even this way. Our pillows were always falling into the blinds though, so I had moved it to the far wall.

I decided to move it back to the window again. This time, to keep our pillows from falling, I nailed two long boards onto the wall along the back.
Why the change? The fresh air coming in the windows at night makes me sleep like a baby. I am a big fan of fresh air.
The room is nice and symmetrical this way. I gave up my dresser as a night stand but behind the curtain I placed an old shower caddy to hold TV remotes and my good reads. It's screwed right into one of the boards.
But you would never know.
When my camera and I are getting along a little better, I can show you more.

My boys and I are off on a spring break vacation to see my new little nephew who is arriving this week. I can not wait to meet him.

Oh the room looks so fresh and inviting. I am with you on the fresh air making you sleep like a baby.
My husband and I always keep the window cracked even in the dead of winter.
