Living in a place where extremes of temperatures is prevalent, I just can’t see me “undressing” our windows. Yes, we live on the 14th floor of a high rise, a glass wall with a view of the New York skyline on one side, and the beach on the picture window on the other side and all rooms are equipped with a view. Many will probably say, “don’t you dare cover the beautiful views.”
However, blinds & shades in addition to lined drapes keep us toasty and warm during the winter. In the warmer months though, as soon as the sun is no longer directly hitting our interiors, the blinds and drapes are neatly tuck and or rolled away to give way to those sweeping views.
It’s such a delight to wake up to a beautiful surrounding everyday. When the time comes for us to leave this place, I will really miss waking up to it (enough said).
