Iím about to decorate our new condo.

Here are a few pictures with how the previous owner furnished the same space.

Iíve also come up with a plan as to how we think it should look and 3D modeled the place with sketchup.

Here is a youtube walkthough of this:

Iíve asked around and the general consensus so far is to replace the curtains with cellular shades instead. Any additional advice would be very welcome before we go buy a whole lot of furniture.
