The back wall of my kitchen and living room has about 6 large windows with wood blinds. Each window also has a small square window over it that is up high enough to just show the sky and let light in. My decorator neighbor thinks I need some kind of fabric treatment on the top windows to soften the look. But I can't think of any ideas that would be modern, informal and fresh. I don't want anything formal. Any suggestions are appreciated!

How about just using 2 drapery panels, flanking either side of the window wall, hung high, but not really covering anything. That would soften some edges nicely.

The unexpected use of traditional plantation shutters in a modern home office adds a great detail to this loft space. The white casing draws your eye to the view of the bridge beyond.

This is the ladder I most want to do that long slide on, from one end of the room to the other!

"Lofts tend to be short on storage in lieu of open spaces. By creating this uniform storage area using the same shape/size/color boxes, it only adds to the decor while offering storage and organization."

Storage is at a premium in college rooms, so nice-looking storage boxes are a great find.

When shutters are are built specifically for your windows, you will have lots of choices regarding how they are designed. For a window like this, the two panels could open from the center or bi-fold to one side. If you never plan to actually open the panels back against the wall, having them open from the center is fine. But if you plan to throw open the panels and there is something in the way on one side (like the pipe running up the left side of this window) then bi-fold is the way to go. They work similarly to bi-fold doors, folding one on top of the other, off to the side.Discuss all of your shutter options with a window treatment professional

Another great example of repetition, this warm, character-heavy room has both the floor and long row of bins going for it. It carries the eye with ease and represents a nice, calming flow.
