Window Treatments To The Rescue!

 To make the most of a partial water view and allow more light to come in, while blocking a view of the parking lot, we removed the top down venetian blinds and retro-fitted matchstick blinds from Lowe's to work from the bottom-up. And of course we staged it with furniture, art work and accessories to complement the style of the condominium.

 ---

For the photos below:

Since the top down shades only served to block the sunlight and expose the view of the street along with the neighbors cardboard window treatments, we decided to replace them with sheers on the lower part of the window.
This allowed more light to come through while showing off the mullions and blocking a less than desirable view.  To create a focal point we changed out the 90s glass and brass light fixture for a chandelier that is in keeping with the style of the house.

I apologize for the hideous "before" picture but this is exactly why I don't take my own listing photos.
