White plantation shutters would be a great look for this room. Shutters create a classic, clean, uncluttered feel to any room. They provide interest, easy exterior viewing and privacy when needed. Unlike a patterned fabric treatment, they coordinate with virtually any style, so you can buy new furniture without worrying about coordinating with existing styles and colors.

Long panels from ceiling to floor on both sides of the window that go to the walls on either side.

I love the vibe in this room. I would do a tailored roman shade hung from just below molding or ceiling using a great retro inspired fabric. Panels to the floor will be overwhelming I think. Remove small table in corner and get something cooler mid centuryish

Thanks lpmenache! The vibe here is modern bright fun! The ceiling is angled--8' on right to 9' on left--so I don't know where to start the window treatment.

I would look for a wild and crazy area rug, then pull some color from it for a roman shade: [houzz=

Start the roman shade 7 inches from the 8' height.. I like the idea of a cool rug as well.

lpmenache--and then would you keep the width the same as it is no? I love the idea of a cool rug also--except with the kids' dining habits!

jeanjjk: get a rug like the one in Dytecture's photo and then tell the kids they can only have spaghetti till their dining habits improve.

Yes let the shade be the width of the window outside molding. You can get some great looking modern rugs cheaply at Loes, Home depot target etc so you dont have to worry about the kids.

Here is a link to some curtain panels that would look great in here. Especially since it seems like an area rug wouldn't work for you right now, this would be a great way to add a fun pattern. I would paint the walls too if you can..... I would use the "Spa" colored panels. http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Contemporary-95-inch-Highlife-Curtain-Panel/6130539/product.html

thanks people! i like the ideas of the bright coloured rug--and they do love spagetti! Thanks again re. the window treatment--because of the angled ceiling and no window mouldings, I didn't know how to start.
