For the windows, I'd use blinds that inset leaving the trim of the window showing. If you really are partial to drapes, then going ceiling to floor and enough beyond to trick the eye into thinking the windows are bigger would work. But myself, I like the architectural details to show. Corner windows may at first seem odd, but they do make rooms more functional. furniture placement is easier. And it leaves large walls for art. I am currently living is an actual MCM with walls of glass. And a lot of pretty good art stored in closets because there are few walls. Don't get me started on where am I going to put books!

New source for mid century style pendant fixtures
Posted: Sat Aug 07, 2010 8:08 am
Found these great fixtures from an unlikely source - Menards is a mid west chain of home improvement stores. The finish is listed as oil rubbed bronze, but they are actually satin black with gold in person. Nicely made too, and they come with a black ceiling cap. Available by special order from the link below, and you can't beat the price! I bought two and I don't even have anywhere to put them
Of the three styles available, I would personally not recommend the wide shallow one. It leaves too much of the bulb visible in my opinion.

Those Menard lights are a direct rip off of Tom Dixon's designs for a fraction of the price!
