In an attempt to add character to our dinning room I have added some faux board and batten. I like how this has turned out however I'm not sure what to do with the bay window. If you look at the pictures you will see the board and batten goes about 60% up the wall. We will be painting that white and the top part of the wall will be navy. The previous owners had a chair rail (the white horizontal line in the pictures) and painted the bay window to match the bottom part of the wall (red). The bay window is sort of odd because there is soffit (I think that is what it would be called) and it has a different "ceiling" height. Also there is space between the windows but it is less than 2 inches. I'm not sure what to do with the bay windows to pull them into the design of the room. I've looked for pictures of bay windows with any type of wainscoting and I just can't find something similar. The way I see it I have 3 options:
1. Omit any board and batten in bay area and paint entire bay WHITE to match lower half of wall.
2. Omit any board and batten in bay area and paint entire bay NAVY to match upper half of wall.
3. Continue board and batten as best as I can and paint NAVY and WHITE accordingly with the rest of the room. The bay ceiling will be a flat white to match the dining room ceiling.
Which is the best option? Is there another option? HELP!!!!
