Bay Window Conundrum

Yes my bay window is making headlines for me once again.  I'm still trying to find a decorating solution and not having very much luck.  I decided to put the throw pillows from the couch on the seat just to see what it looked like.  I didn't even think to take a picture but it was something similar to this except with more pillows.

This looks like a nice setup and a nice sitting area.  My problem, however is not what it looks like from the inside.  I loved how the pillows looked while being inside.  But as Andy nicely pointed out, "The window looks kind of weird from the outside.".  Hence my problem.  In the picture above it looks like this window is in the back of the house which would be less necessary to make it look nice from the outside; my window is in the front.

These bay windows make it a bit easier because they have a little wall space before the window starts.  That would be so nice and I wouldn't have to worry about how it looked from the outside.

Maybe I'm just being nit picky.  Should I just do what looks nice from the inside and not care if it looks a little weird from the outside.  Or should I find an alternate solution?  I've entertained the idea of taking the cushion off and using it as a kind of shelf for decorations.  But I just love the idea of extra sitting room. 
Advice is always welcome! :)


  1. I'm sure it doesn't look as bad as you think from the outside,we tend to over analyze our own say people shouldn't be nosing or peeping at your windows so go with what looks pretty from the inside view.Warm Blessings!~Amy
