Yes, I've been here just over a year and my place isn't finished! Unfortunately, my budget is keeping me from getting big ticket items like a sofa and chairs, but it's not stopping me from doing smaller, less expensive improvements like adding window treatments.
Even though I've been labeled a 'cold' person in interior design terms, I love curtains. They soften the space and give it a more 'finished' look. I feel floor length curtains look better than shorter ones unless you have a deep window sill that the curtains hit. Hang the curtain rod either up to the ceiling (as I did above), or half way between the top of the window and the ceiling.
The curtain rods are from my first apartment and the curtains and blinds are new for a cost of about $120 for the two windows. I only did blinds on the office/dressing area window (not shown) for an additional cost of $38.00. The branches in the large vase were cut from a tree outside my window. I also switched out my darker picture frames for white ones for about $65, and moved two of them between the windows. And not sure if you can see Smokey making a run for under the bed...
