When it comes to bedroom design, certain bedroom layouts work better than others, especially when it comes to pursuing harmony and restful sleep. What happens, though, if you turn your bed 180 degrees and place it in the middle of the room, facing a window (or two). We're admiring this type of bedroom layout, but do we dare to jump on the turned bed trend? Here are 10 bedrooms featuring this unusual furniture configuration.   Above: A rustic farmhouse in Bourgogne, France, featuring a bedroom with a turned bed facing a large window.
