A: We think you should tackle the windows first, and you can break the space with two different treatments. Your drapery should be at least twice the width of your window, and you want to be able to effortlessly close it without it looking like a sheet. The gray wall is an opportunity to add some color and texture! Cheryl would take advantage of the light by having two living spaces, and a statement chandelier that is tight to the ceiling. A small seating area and some ottomans would provide some great seating for guests.
