No naked windows here. Although I live in a rural area, I still don't want people or cows or goats or deer or whatever staring in at me. Second, I don't like minimalist decor so bare windows would not fit with the style of my house. Third, it is hot here in the summer and cold in the winter and window coverings can help keep the heat and cold out. My living room and dining room have drapes, one bathroom has curtains plus a wood wide slat blind, the other bathroom has curtains plus a roller shade, the mud room has a valance with a roller shade, the kitchen has only a valance, the computer room has match stick blinds with a valance, the guest room has curtains with roller shades, and my bedroom has a valance with black-our mini blinds because I like to sleep late in the mornings.
I see places in magazines with bare windows and they look neat for other people but I can't imagine living with them!
