While having "too many" windows may sound like a good problem to have (hello, vitamin D), treating multiple windows in one space is often a task best left to the professionals. With so many variables involved, it's hard to know what treatments will look good together until the installation is complete (aka once it's too late). Luckily, Los Angeles-based interior designer Taylor Jacobson shared with us some insightful rays of wisdom on how to do it right the first time, so you can treat your windows with confidence.

The annual John Lewis/M&S/ Sainsbury's Christmas ads have become something of a festive tradition so we're delighted to see that Arctic Cabins is striking a blow for the garden room market by releasing their own.  Here's what they say: "Sorry to mention Christmas when it is only October, but we have to let you know that we are fast running out of installation dates for this year. With several teams out fitting daily we now have just 30 places available for installation before Christmas. If you would like to secure one of those places please give us a call or drop us an email urgently. You and your family could wake up to this amazing piece of Christmas on December 25th." --------------------------------------------------------- Saturday posts are sponsored by Eurodita , the leader in serving smart dealers
