Need help with my living room.

I live on a military base so I cant paint. I have some temporary furniture as you can see by the chair. Id like to get curtains. I was thinking black and white striped horizontal. Please help

Why don't you get something more neutral and less trendy? You may be moving a lot and a simple curtain will be more flexible for you when you move from one assignment to another. Add the stripes and patterns and color in pillows, throws, and artwork. I'd keep curtains and area rugs neutral and more flexible, and put effort and money into less expensive accessories that can easily be changed as your taste and fashion trends change.

Diana, is that a sliding door behind the sofa with the blinds? If so, do you use that door for access to the room? Also, do you open the slat blinds for light in the room, or leave them closed?

I don't open them since there is no privacy. I keep them closed. I doubt I will open them during the summer since I live in Okinawa and the ac will run most of the time. My couch is shaped differently so it's hard to line it up against anything. So I decided I can put it in front of the sliding glass door. Behind me is my tv. The counter top is next to the chair. This space is small and long and weird.

thanks for all the photos. I assume the slat blinds on the sliding doors belong to the apartment and you can't toss them. But, maybe you could take the slats down and put them under your bed til time for you to move on and put them back up (aren't they on little hooks?) and leave the "cornice" to hide the hardware. Then cover the glass with removable wallpaper that has some pattern and happy colors.

Since its such a large space to cover I would definitely recommend Ripplefold Drapery. It can be made in any fabric you choose it usually comes with a cord to slide it open and closed. They best part about about this product is that its really easy to install and uninstall if you ever move you can take it with you. IT can also be mounted to the exactly to cover the holes of the vertical track.
