When I used to work with clients, I always struggled to get them to cover their windows with shades or curtains. "We don't want to lose any light!" they would say, or "I want my home to be modern!", or "Curtains are fussy!". Hmmmmm. Ok, here's my pitch. Windows by themselves are practical but ugly unfiltered openings in the side of your home. By adding what I consider the two essential elements to them, shades and curtains, you soften the hard frame of the window and allow for infinite variation in the light that comes into your home. I'm on a mission.
