My son and his fiancée have just moved into a spacious condo apt in Australia and will be there for three or four years. The place is very large and I am wondering how it could be made 'cozy' with fabrics, etc. I have a tablecloth to contribute (see attached), which might be a nice contrast (or not?) to the 'bachelor' furniture that is newish and was pre-fiancée. My daughter-in-law to be is sweet and easygoing, and is a 'girly girl' (who loves colour -- esp pinks and reds); in my way of thinking, she deserves a less 'harsh' environment. :)
When I visit them in late summer, I would like to help them put up a fabulous window treatment. The windows face north (which is the equivalent of our 'south' in this hemisphere). I would appreciate any ideas for that, and for the rest of the room too. The property manager is quite fussy (on behalf of the owner) and so major structural adjustments are out.
