How to Utilize this space best

Should there be two night stands or one?

The window on the right seems like a great space for a small window seat! or maybe a lounge chair? It would be fantastic to sit there and read a book :) Also, I'd add a rug to warm up the space and some artwork.

Please share photos when you've finished!

I'd want a night stand with a lamp if this happens to be a guest room and you invite me to stay. It doesn't have to match the other night stand...a small round table would suit me fine, with a swing arm lamp mounted on the wall above.

Then I'd love to see shutters on the windows or roman shades because I'm not going to stay there with nothing on the windows! And since I'm being picky, how about a rug as Kira suggested? Add to that a chair in the unseen portion of the room on which I can throw my robe. And, oh, I would enjoy some Greek yogurt and granola for breakfast, please.

It's maybe just a personal preference thing, but I would like to create balance by having 2 nightstands and lamps--they do not necessarily have to be matchy-matchy....

I think Kim Nguyen is right - window seats in bedrooms are great! However I would put a corner one on the side where you now have your night stand, and move the stand to the single window side of the bed.

I'd rather climb in bed and read.

I think if you centered the bed under the painting, and put fabric roman shades on the windows, you should definitely have a table each side of the bed. It can sit in front of the window a little.

Two nightstands. So that both sides of the bed are balanced.

I would place two tables on either side of the bed. They do not need to match but should have a drawer. Also I do like a chair(can be a straight back) up near the bed to put my robe on rather than across the room. I do think that the lamps should match and they can be at the same height by using books if one table is lower than the other. A rug would tie the whole thing together. I also like to use a rug under the foot of the bed, a 8X10 or 9X12 and then use a small oriental mat on either side of the bed. These do not need to match. For sure you are going to need some type of window covering, shades or shears or drapes or all of the above. A nice long bench at the foot of the bed gives you a place to put the bedspread when you turn it down. would love to see what you decide.
