Window treatment for living room & sunroom
June 16, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi. I am remodeling a condo in Florida and am unsure what to do about the windows. They face a golf course so I don't want to block the view. However, they also face west and the hot, afternoon sun will be too much. I am installing new hurricane windows that will have some sort of color block in them but the sun will still be too hot. I like the clean look of shutters but are unsure if they will impede the view. I dont have to worry about privacy as I am on the 2nd floor. I am not into curtains. Although one of the photos shows my cream couch covered in plastic, the brown barrel chair will probably be moved to another room. My color scheme will be grey walls in the living room with sage and possibly purple accent colors in the throw pillows on a cream sectional. Ive been looking for fabric for the pillows but havent found anything I like yet. I think Im making the sunroom walls yellow and continuing the grey. The ceilings are beamed and high and the floor is wood. The new window in the sunroom will go to the floor. What you see in the photo of the sunroom is the seller's furniture, not mine. I tend towards the modern but with warmth and a "put your feet up" feeling. I appreciate any help anyone can give. Oh, if you have any suggestions for grey, purple and sage pillows, comfy chair, cocktail table or anything else, Id appreciate that also. Im really starting from scratch and need everything.
