I am so excited!! Just purchased our first home. Closing in 2 weeks. I need help with putting my furniture and decorating.
I have this beautiful family room that has 2 wall windows by the fireplace. I love them! The problem is the view. I see houses... barely few trees. I plan to plant lots of trees (Another question on how to do it will be posted.. haha) but I am wondering how should I decorate the windows or should I just leave them alone?

If you had no neighbors or privacy issues I would say leave them bare for the view.

But since you have neighbors I would go with plantation shutters half way up or curtains/shades and hang the drapery rod the same height the balcony railing hits the window in the photo, essentially cutting them in half leaving the top bare.

wonderful12, sounds like an ad to me. Poster didn't mention anything about the exterior of the new home.

hnks, love your room. Zonelady9 gave some good advice.

Welcome to the boards. Looking forward to photos of your decorating.

As to furniture, keep in mind a focal point and traffic flow.

Have fun.

Another option is putting decorative screen panels over the windows. That would solve the problem of seeing the houses while adding a modern flair to your home.
