If you have an amazing view from your home, would that change how you decorate your home's interior?
Well, it should.
Consider your view a part of your décor. In fact, it's not just an accent; it should be the main focus. Not everyone has a beautiful view from their windows. But if you do, it's time to accentuate it and take advantage of the unique sights your home offers.
Decorating Tip: Windows with beautiful views should not be covered up.
Depending on where you live, you may need sun, light, or heat blockage, especially during the summer. If this is the case, it's not a good idea to leave your windows uncovered. This can raise your electricity costs. However, that doesn't mean you can't accentuate that view. Instead, choose solar shades. People outside can't see in, but you can see out. The right solar shade will not restrict your view at all, but it will still provide you the sun and light blockage you need.
Sheer shades are designed for a light, flowy look and feel. With just a soft layer over your windows, you can still enjoy the view, but the sheer shades will diffuse and filter the bright light so you get a soft glow. Sit back and enjoy the view from your window, all while keeping your home looking modern and stylish.
Simplify in Order to Accentuate

If you really want to make your view stand out, simplify your décor. Too many bright colors or too many knick knacks will distract from your view. Choose clean lines and simplify. Simple doesn't mean boring. You can still add flair to your home décor, but choosing to simplify will highlight your windows.
Make the View the Star Attraction

Place your furniture so the window is the focus of the room. When you have guests, you'll want them to appreciate and enjoy the view. So turn chairs and couches toward the windows. Make it the star attraction, just as it deserves to be.
The view from your windows may be an external benefit, but why not center your entire home's interior on that feature? It's just one more way to add personality, individuality, and uniqueness to your home. You don't want your home to be like every other home. So, find what makes it unique and emphasize it. In this case, it's your stellar view!
