What Houzz contributors are saying:
Floor-length curtains + roller shades. In the bedroom, where privacy and complete darkness at night are more important than adjusting sun levels during the day, try roller shades with blackout liners and layer a set of floor-length curtains on top.Tip: Hang curtains on extended rod brackets. Floor-length curtains hung in front of a smaller radiator may be able to close with the help of extended brackets that hold the curtains away from the wall.
De Jong says she keeps clutter at bay with constant editing. “I tidy the house often and edit the space regularly to create a calm space. If I don’t like something, I get rid of it,” she says. “I also use a lot of storage to stash away unsightly things.”Dressers: Malm, Ikea; white vase: Hella Jongerius for Ikea; paper bag: Merci Paris; frame with Finn's footprint: Ikea; wire stool: Cees Braakman for Pastoe; gray plaid: H&M; rug: House Doctor; prints: "Clean up Your Mess," House Doctor, Postcard Heart, April and May
