Back in November, we posted this photo as part of a good question from Claire. You may remember that she lives in a garden level space and was hoping to obscure the view into the apartment, while allowing the cats to continue to enjoy their favorite world watching spot. Well...she took the AT readers advice to heart and sent us a great follow-up email over the break. Jump below for photos and her feeedback:

Hi Janel,
Thanks for posting my question on a window treatment for Apartment Therapy readers to weigh in with their advice. I just wanted to let you know what I ended up doing: I took the advice of the commenter, theluckiestash, who understood what living in a fishbowl is like, and I put up some blik decals. (See photos.)

We'll see how this goes, I might change my mind and opt for the suggestion of homebody and use some plasticor as hanging panels. And if it weren't for an oath I took, for my husband, not to bring more Japanese stuff into the house (we've got a ton already and he's not a huge fan), the shoiji screen idea from JG was terrific too.

In the end, I collected more ideas in one day than I'd have come up with on my own in one month! Thanks again.

Best,
Claire
