Survey: Curtains -- Open or Closed?

Survey: Curtains -- Open or Closed?

This weekend, Portland experienced the dreaded sunny day...repeatedly. As the unfamiliar rays touched down, we considered pulling back the living room curtains and letting a little Vitamin D venture in. But we didn't.

See, our street is filled with foot traffic, and opening the curtains means that every Joe and Jane can check out our PJs and penchant for reality TV. And don't get us started on what they might see at night with the lights on... So until we get sheers or some sort of blind, our curtains generally remain closed and the living room, dark. Sad, but true.

What about you? Do you let the sunshine in around the clock? Appreciate your privacy, even if it means letting in little light? Leave 'em open only when you're home, for safety reasons?

Vote and then share your curtain customs in the comments below!
