Good Question: Privacy without shutting out the Light?

Good Question: Privacy without shutting out the Light?

Anne needs some privacy and we think we have an idea...

Hi AT:

I need help! Our house has three windows with a view of our neighbor's porch/patio area. Neighbor uses this area as an outside living space. We need a privacy solution for both parties
that allows our house to get light and breeze while giving our neighbor a sense of privacy. We were thinking of somekind of emulsion or sticker on the glass but don't know where to start.

Hi Anne, well oh boy aren't you in luck. There are so many great window films to choose from these days and each and every one would solve the privacy issue and allow light into your space.

These are some of our favorite styles and resources:
Strossel Window Screen Film
A DIY option using contact paper
The Monte Carlo
Liv Window Tree Film from the Scandinavian Design center
Brume has a lot to choose from (pictured above)
White Flowers and Lace From 2 Jane (pictured at left) for some mod options
More on Window Films and Privacy
•And if you aren't exhausted at this point, Not Martha did a guest post on window films over on Design Sponge last week and has some great picks.

Anyone else have some other options to share?
