Decorating a Room with a View

The one piece of art that never goes out of style is an amazing view. Even if the view isn’t technically a “million dollar view,” it can make your space feel like it is when it’s properly taken advantage of in the room’s design.

If you’re lucky enough to have a view of the sunrise or sunset, water, mountains or even just a lovely backyard with trees, then why not make the most of it? A simple arrangement of furniture can make all the difference. If the view is particularly spectacular, then consider how the room’s color palette (especially wall color) could affect it.

Here are 10 examples of spaces that took full advantage of the beautiful view the windows had to offer. They didn’t need expensive art to create a stunning space.
