Dear AT,

After months of delay, I finally purchased my first real bed, upholstered in a gorgeous gray cotton-blend fabric.

It's set to arrive tomorrow, and while I'm thrilled, I'm also a little worried.

I have a wall of windows, and no window treatments.

I'm scared that the upholstery will fade over time as a result of too much sunlight.

I was going to buy some rice paper blinds from Pearl River, but here's my question: will they be enough to protect my furniture from the sun?

Thanks! Rina
