Hi! I’m Joanna, a writer for Design Shuffle, a premier interior design portal for interior designers to share their work and design enthusiasts to enjoy. I love my job. I get to spend each day finding the most beautiful interior designs and sharing them with blog readers like you. Thanks to Lovely Undergrad for allowing me to share today! Finding the best treatment for tall windows can seem daunting and overwhelming. Sometimes, it just takes a few decorating ideas taken from other rooms to find the perfect window treatments for your own space. We’ve gathered together several rooms with eclectic and classic styles. 

Tall Windows 

Sometimes the best window treatment option for tall windows is no window treatment at all. The natural light floods through this apartment making it bright and cheerful.

A dreamy dressing room gets the royal treatment at the windows with a soft blue fabric. A sheer is added to block excess light so the desk can be used. Does this room inspire any interior design ideas?

I'm a HUGE fan of completely bare windows (especially when they are as beautiful as these!), but since moving from a 7th then 5th story apartment to a first story apartment, privacy has become a concern. I've found great options for colorful, fun curtains at Ikea, and they're affordable, so that's always good! :)

These are great tips to those who have tall windows just like yours. I like the idea of making these windows the center of decorations and interior designs.

I am also a big fan of completely bare windows. It feels more relaxing and you smell fresh air all the time you wanted too.

Tall windows offer a wide glimpse of the surrounding from inside the house. Adding to that, fresh air can enter freely to feel the cold breeze from outside.

Most of the time, windows are not noticed in a house. But to be honest, it's a very important asset in a house. They're responsible for the lighting that comes in the house.

I agree with the last comment. It is also important to color the windows and doors with a very compelling paint. A white colored paint is recommended to ensure proper lighting and balance inside the house.

I love how the bathroom was designed. It's a unique idea to put a furniture in the bathroom. Combined with the bath tub, it seems such a relaxing room.

Windows will never fail in improving your house's looks. I think that prefabricated floor panels will be a perfect combinations for the windows shown above.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
